We sell pre-lubricated bearings. Lube expiration depends on a variety of things, but we frequently send out lots of bearings to get re-lubed to meet customer requirements. They might not all come back at once, so we’re effectively splitting the lots into smaller ones with different lube dates. Receipt Entry suggests the JobNum for the lube OSS operation as the LotNum. We’d like to automate a LotNum suggestion consisting of the JobNum plus a serialized suffix (12345-0, 12345-1, and so on). Otherwise, if we let it re-use the same LotNum, the lube date (re-labeled cure date lot attribute) just gets overwritten, and then we have to untangle the mess later on.
I’m fairly inexperienced at authoring BPMs from scratch, and I’ve just taken my first stab at tracing objects/methods to identify my logical insertion point… I’m struggling a bit. Anyone like to give me some pointers or suggestions?
