Service Connect Workflow Quandry

It sounds like "get details" has already run so even updating in the Sales Order wouldn't make a difference. Since the only way for a change to flow down to the order would be to delete the "details", update the sales order configurator and re-run "get details".

If "get details" hasn't run yet, you can also update the values in the pcinvalues table. This holds the answers given to the configurator during Order Entry. When "get details" runs it uses these values to process the rules. Rules that adjust the MOM do not fire until "get details". I use this approach to update a configurator session without the user ever seeing the configurator input screen.

With "get details" already run using Service Connect may be the most expeditious. The only other option that comes to mind is to delete the job details, update the values in PCinvalues and redo the "get details". Which is probably more work than your current Service Connect approach.

The other argument for the Service Connect approach is your comfort with and work already done with SC.

I am working on a new workflow. One that will go to the job and swap
out a part by way of Sales Order. This workflow will be mainly used for
configured parts. For example... if I need to replace the hinges on a
configured door unit. I have this working as long as the Material
Sequence number is provided. My questions to you is... is there a way
for Service Connect to look at each job related to the given Sales Order
and if the part you need changed is present then make the change? For
example... in a configured part there could be many different parts but
I only need one part changed. Can service connect look at each part on
the configured part and determine whether or not it needs to be
changed.. if not then move onto the next part present in the configured
part? The Schema would be OrderNum,Old PartNum,New PartNum. Any help
you could give me would be great!

It sounds like you need a list of jobs that relate to a sales order
(sub1), once you have that list you need a list of materials for each
job that match your criteria (sub1a), once you have that list of
materials you either go back to your main flow or another branch to
process that? Just a 30 second swag...

Blake,

Without being too specific, I would suggest you look at the Getlist methods. I used this to find all the records in a cash group for deletion. You should be able to do something similar.

Blake, that's exactly the logic I was referring to yes.. when you say
configured part, is that a reference to part configurator? If so then
I'm gonna let you down from there as we don't have that module and I
have exactly zero knowledge of how it works... is there some uniqueness
associated to how a configured part looks on a job as opposed to a
normal job based on a sales order demand for a part not made with
configurator?

I like what you said about JobAssy Search. I'll look into that. I
needed to use JobProd because we are looking up Job information via
Sales Order Number. I will email you a print screen of what a job looks
like with a configured part (configurator) on it.

Thanks,

If its just a straight approach like you are looking for a specific
subassembly by part number there's jobassy search, or if its material by
part number theres a jobmtl search...jobprod will only tell you saleable
part numbers (i.e. 0 level) ...

Rob,

It sounds like you are talking about my workflows. I have Main....
Main_EachOrder... Main_EachOrder_EachJob. Is that what you were
referring to? How do I get SC to view the job and look for a specific
part within a configured part?

Thanks,

Blake Clemens

It sounds like you need a list of jobs that relate to a sales order
(sub1), once you have that list you need a list of materials for each
job that match your criteria (sub1a), once you have that list of
materials you either go back to your main flow or another branch to
process that? Just a 30 second swag...

Subject: [Vantage] Service Connect Workflow Quandry

I am working on a new workflow. One that will go to the job and swap
out a part by way of Sales Order. This workflow will be mainly used for
configured parts. For example... if I need to replace the hinges on a
configured door unit. I have this working as long as the Material
Sequence number is provided. My questions to you is... is there a way
for Service Connect to look at each job related to the given Sales Order
and if the part you need changed is present then make the change? For
example... in a configured part there could be many different parts but
I only need one part changed. Can service connect look at each part on
the configured part and determine whether or not it needs to be
changed.. if not then move onto the next part present in the configured
part? The Schema would be OrderNum,Old PartNum,New PartNum. Any help
you could give me would be great!

I am curious, the configurator's primary purpose is to replace parts and operations on the MOM. Why not use the configurator to replace the part? Is some event happening after the job is created and get details occurred that triggers the need to replace the part?

It is a lot quicker to use Service Connect to replace the part. For
example... a ten line order could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes to go
back into the configurator and replace the part. Where as using Service
Connect to replace the part takes a matter of seconds. This saves us a
lot of time.

It's typical in our industry for a builder or contractor to call in and
change a spec on their order. Whether its hinges, door size, door type,
trim finish.
