2 Setting Up Base Data for Demand Flow Manufacturing

This chapter contains the following topics:

2.1 Understanding Base Data Setup for Demand Flow Manufacturing

When using JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing, you can work with either of two sets of data. If JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing is integrated with other JD Edwards EnterpriseOne systems, you import the necessary data from those systems. However, if you use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing by itself, the setup applications that are described in this chapter enable you to set up the data that you need to run JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing. applications. These will control all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing functionality.

You always have to set up scenarios because this functionality is unique to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing.

Within base data setup, you set up the following data:

  • Scenarios

  • Unit-of-measure conversions

  • Branch/plant information

  • Item definitions

  • Bills of material

  • Customers

  • Suppliers

  • Employees

  • Resources

  • Sales orders

Note:

If you integrate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing programs, you can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne work centers. To do so, you import work center information from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing. You do not set up work centers within the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing product, but you can view the work centers that you imported.

2.2 Prerequisite

Set up a calendar for planning parameters and resources.

See "Setting Up Shop Floor Calendars" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Shop Floor Management Implementation Guide.

2.3 Setting Up Scenarios

This section provides an overview of scenario setup and discusses how to:

  • Define an active scenario.

  • Define a default user scenario.

  • Set processing options for Copy Data Within Scenario (RF30L010).

  • Copy a scenario with data.

2.3.1 Understanding Scenario Setup

Before you can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing, you must define scenarios using the DFM Scenario Master program (PF30L010). Scenarios control all activities in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing. Use this functionality to create what-if scenarios. You have to determine which scenario is the active scenario in the system. Only one scenario can be active at one time. Scenarios enable you to:

  • Hold a set of imported JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing data or base data that was created in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing and is specific to the scenario.

  • Define control parameters for line design and planning.

  • Perform data retrieval and storage during any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing function.

The system uses scenarios to segment the business data tables in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing; thus, you can work with a set of data without affecting data that is associated with a different scenario.

When you set up a scenario, the system automatically adds the following hard-coded components to the scenario:

  • SCRAP and END_OF_LINE process.

  • Default labor and machine resources.

  • Default cell.

You use scenarios to define parameters for line design and for planning, For line design, you can specify default values for shift information, sequencing, and units of measure. For planning, you can associate a branch calendar, for example a shop floor calendar that you have defined in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing, with the scenario to use for back scheduling. The planning parameters are stored in the DFM Planning Parameters table (FF34S003).

Note:

Because data is specific to a scenario, you have to specify the scenario when you are importing data into JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing. In the same way, for exporting data, you specify which scenario to export the data from. You cannot export the scenarios themselves to other JD Edwards EnterpriseOne systems, because scenarios are not supported in these systems.

To use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing, you first have to define the default user scenario using the DFM Default User Scenario program (PF30L013). You associate the scenario with the user profile based on the login ID. When you use any of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing applications, the scenario that you have defined as the default user scenario automatically becomes the default scenario for the application. You can also associate a branch/plant with the default user scenario. This branch/plant becomes the default branch/plant for all applications that use a branch/plant.

Note:

When you set up a scenario, the system displays a message asking you whether you want to make the scenario that you just created the default user scenario.

Deleting a scenario also deletes all records in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing that are associated with the scenario. When you attempt to initiate a deletion, the system issues a warning that you have to accept before the deletion is accomplished. The system does not delete the default unit-of-measure conversion that you set up for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing because this conversion is not associated with a scenario.

For copying scenarios, the system provides you with two different copy functions. You can use the Copy button on the Search for Scenarios form to copy the line design and planning parameters from the current scenario to a new scenario that you want to create.

If you want to copy not only the scenario information, but also the entire set of Demand Flow base data or imported JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing data that is associated with the scenario, you use the Copy Data Within Scenario batch program (RF30L010). This program also copies line design data that you have created in the original scenario, for example, processes, lines and mixed model families, to the new scenario. By using this batch program, you can avoid having to set up base data for the new scenario or reimport them from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Manufacturing.

2.6 Defining Items

This section provides an overview of item definition in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing and discusses how to:

  • Define item information.

  • Define unit of measure conversions for items.

2.6.1 Understanding Item Definition

You can set up item definitions using the DFM Item Definition Master program (PF30L501) if you are not importing item branch records from the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Inventory Management system. You create item definitions for the end items (SKU), field replacement units (FRU), and options that are produced on the Demand Flow line. You set up items by scenario and branch. The default user scenario becomes the scenario for the item definition.

To set up an item definition, you have to provide the following information: item number, branch/plant, stocking type, planner number, buyer, number, supplier number, standard unit-of-measure conversion, and primary unit of measure. On the Demand Flow tab you can provide information for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing functionality.

The remaining fields on the Additional Info, Category Code, Quantities, and Item UoM tabs are not required, but are populated when you import Item Branch records. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Demand Flow Manufacturing does not use the fields that are related to MPS/MRP, for example, planning code, planning fence, and planning fence rule. You can use the maximum and minimum order quantity for dividing sequence quantities.

You can calculate unit-of-measure conversions for the items. Depending on how you set the Standard Unit of Measure Conversion flag for the item, the unit-of-measure conversion is based on either the standard or the item-specific unit-of-measure conversion.

Note:

If you try to delete an item that is used in a bill of material, the system issues an error message.

S: Use customer demand before the time fence and forecast after the time fence.

Planning Fence

Displays the number of days that the system uses in conjunction with the time fence rule to determine how the forecast is used. Displays the number of days after the start date when the time fence rule changes from the first rule to the second rule.

The system does not count the generation start date; that is, the day after the generation start date is day 1. For manufactured items, the system counts working days, as defined in the shop floor calendar. For purchased items, the system counts calendar days.

Freeze Fence

Displays he number of days from the generation start date within which the system does not generate action messages. The same rules apply as to the planning fence.

Message Display Fence

Displays the number of days after the generation start date within which the system should display order messages. The same rules apply as to the planning fence.

Setup Labor

Issue Type Code

Displays a UDC that indicates how the system issues each component in the bill of material from stock. Values are:

I: Manual issue

F: Floor stock

B: Backflush

U: Super backflush

S: Subcontract item

Blank: Shippable end item

You can issue a component in more than one way within a specific branch/plant by using different codes on the bill of material and the work order parts list. The bill of material code overrides the branch/plant value.

Time Basis

Enter a UDC (30/TB) that indicates how machine or labor hours are expressed for a product. Time basis codes identify the time basis or rate to be used for machine or labor hours that are entered for every routing step. For example, 25 hours per 1,000 pieces or 15 hours per 10,000 pieces. The system uses the values in the Description-2 field on the User Defined Codes form for costing and scheduling calculations. The description is what the code represents, but is not used in calculations.

Item Revision Level

Enter a revision level in this field; verify that the revision level of the routing for an item matches the revision level on the bill of material for the item.

Shrink Factor

Displays a fixed quantity or percentage that the system uses to determine inventory shrinkage for an item. The system increases the planned order quantity by this amount in MPS/MRP/DRP generation. The shrink factor method that you specify for the item determines whether the shrink factor is a percentage or a fixed quantity. If you are entering a percentage, enter 5 percent as 5.00 and 50 percent as 50.00.

Shrink Factor Method

Displays the value that determines whether the shrink factor that you enter for this item is a percentage or a fixed quantity. Values are:

%: Percentage of the order or requested quantity.

F: Fixed amount to be added to the quantity.

Leadtime Level

Displays the leadtime for an item at its assigned level in the production process. The system uses this value to calculate the start dates for work orders using fixed leadtimes. Level leadtime is different for purchased and manufactured items:

  • Purchased

    The number of calendar days that are required for the item to arrive at the branch/plant after the supplier receives the purchase order.

  • Manufactured

    The number of workdays that are required to complete the fabrication or assembly of an item after all the components are available.

You can enter level leadtime manually, or you can use the Leadtime Rollup program (R30822A) to calculate it. To calculate level leadtime using the Leadtime Rollup program, you must first enter a quantity in the Manufacturing Leadtime Quantity field.

Leadtime Manufacturing

Displays the total number of days that are required to build an item from its lowest level components to the final assembly. This value is the total of the level leadtimes for all manufactured items, plus the highest manufacturing leadtime for all its components. If all components are purchased, the manufacturing leadtime equals the item's level leadtime. Purchased item leadtimes are not included in the calculation of manufacturing leadtimes. You can enter the manufacturing leadtime manually, or you can have the system calculate it when you run the Leadtime Rollup program.

Leadtime Cumulative

Displays the total number of days that are required to build an item from its lowest level components to the final assembly. The system calculates the value differently for manufactured and purchased items.

  • Manufactured

    The total of all level leadtimes for all manufactured items, plus the highest cumulative leadtime of all its components.

  • Purchased

    The item's level leadtime. Leadtimes for purchased items are included in the calculation of cumulative leadtimes.

You can enter this value manually, or you can have the system calculate it when you run the Leadtime Rollup program.

Leadtime Per Unit

Displays the total number of hours that are required to build one unit as specified on the routing. This value is factored by the time basis code. You can enter this value manually, or you can have the system calculate it when you run the Leadtime Rollup program. The system overwrites this value when you run the Leadtime Rollup program. The system uses this field to calculate start dates for work orders when you use variable leadtimes.

Fixed/Variable

Displays a code that determines whether the system uses fixed or variable leadtimes. This code works in conjunction with the value from either the Leadtime Level field or the Leadtime Per Unit field. Values are:

F: Fixed leadtime: Calculates work order start dates using the value from the Leadtime Level field.

V: Variable leadtime: Calculates work order start dates using the value from the Leadtime Per Unit field.

MFG Leadtime Quantity (manufacturing leadtime quantity)

Enter the quantity that determines the level leadtime for a manufactured item. Each of the routing steps for the item are extended by this quantity. For the system to calculate the level leadtime, the quantity in this field must be a value other than zero.

Replenishment Hours

Displays the time that is required until a replacement kanban is available to the consuming location from its supplying location. The system uses this value only for Kanban card processing in Shop Floor Management.

Sales - Inventory, Margin - Inventory, and Investment - Inventory

Displays a code that specifies this item's ABC ranking by sales amount, margin, or investment amount. Three types of ABC analysis exist—sales, margin, and on-hand value. Within each type of analysis, you can have three groups—A, B, and C. The ABC Code fields contain a percentage that tells the system how to define the A, B, and C groups for categorizing items during ABC analysis. Each group measures a total within the type of analysis. For all groups, the system compares the appropriate sales, margin, or on-hand value totals of a single item to the appropriate total for all items and calculates the value of each item. An item's value is its percentage of the appropriate total. The system then arranges the values of all items from highest to lowest value and accumulates the percentages. What happens next depends on the group:

  • A group: If an item's value causes the accumulated total to exceed the A accumulated percentage, the system assigns the item to the B group.

  • B group: When the accumulated total reaches the percentage that you entered for items in the A group, the system continues adding values until it reaches the percentage that you entered for items in the B group. The system assigns all items whose value falls between the A and B percentages to the B group.

  • C group: The C group consists of items whose accumulated value exceeds the B percentage. The percentage that you usually enter for the C group is .999.

Values are:

A: Assign this item to the first amount ranking.

B: Assign this item to the second amount ranking.

C: Assign this item to the third amount ranking.

D: Do not include this item when you run ABC analysis.

2.6.3.4 Quantities

Select the Quantities tab.

Reorder Quantity

Displays the estimated reorder quantity for an item if not enough sales history is available for the system to accurately calculate a reorder quantity.

Maximum Reorder Qty (maximum reorder quantity)

Displays the maximum order quantity for an item. You can base the quantity on factors other than usage, such as perishability, storage capacity, and so forth. You can use the maximum order quantity to divide the sequence quantity in planning and sequencing.

Minimum Reorder Qty (minimum reorder quantity)

Displays the minimum order quantity for an item. You can base the quantity on factors other than usage, such as perishability, storage capacity, and so forth. You can use the minimum order quantity to divide the sequence quantity in planning and sequencing.

Reorder Point

Displays the item quantity at which replenishment should occur. Typically, replenishment occurs when the total quantity on hand plus the quantity on order falls to, or below, a specified quantity. You can enter this quantity, or the system can calculate it if sufficient sales history does not exist.

Multiple Order Quantity

The system uses the value that you enter in this field to generate multiple subsets of a work order if you want to produce the order in smaller lots than the quantity that the entire work order calls for. For example, if a work order has been generated for 1,000 pieces, and the work order multiple is set to 100, then ten sets of the work order for 100 pieces each print when the work order is released. All sets have the same work order number.

Safety Stock

Displays the quantity of stock that is kept on hand to cover high-side variations in demand.

2.6.3.5 Item UOM

Select the Item UOM tab.

Complete the primary unit of measure field. You can also define unit-of-measure fields for purchasing, pricing, shipping, and production. You can define a secondary unit of measure, as well as component, weight, and volume units of measure.

2.7.3 Defining a Bill of Material

Access the Add a Bill of Material form.

Item Number

Enter the number of the component that you are adding to the bill of material.

Quantity

Enter the quantity of the component that is needed to produce the product.

Prep Code (preparation code)

Select a preparation code from the UDC table to indicate what preparation a component had to undergo to be used on the bill of material for the product. The same component can appear on the bill of material with different preparation codes.

Package UOM (package unit of measure)

Enter the unit of measure in which to express the Kanban for the component.

Issue From Location

Enter the location from which the component is issued.

Completed To Location

Enter the location to which the item is completed.

Active Ingredient

Complete this field to indicate whether an item is an active component of a parent item. When the item is an active component, the system can calculate a parent item's expiration date by comparing all component expiration dates and choosing the earliest date.

Fixed or Variable

Enter a UDC to indicate whether the quantity per assembly for an item on the bill of material varies according to the quantity of the parent item that is produced, or is fixed regardless of the parent quantity. This value also determines whether the component quantity is a percent of the parent quantity. Values are:

F: Fixed Quantity

V: Variable Quantity

%: For fixed-quantity components, Work Orders and Material Requirements Planning do not extend the component's quantity per assembly value by the order quantity.

Issue Type Code

Enter a UDC that indicates how the system issues each component in the bill of material from stock. Values are:

I: Manual issue

F: Floor stock

B: Back flush

U: Super back flush

S: Subcontract item

Blank: Shippable end item

You can issue a component in more than one way within a specific branch/plant by using different codes on the bill of material and the work order parts list. The bill of material code overrides the branch/plant value.

Line Type

Enter a line type to control how the system processes lines on a transaction. It controls the systems with which the transaction interacts, such as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne General Ledger, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Accounts Payable, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Accounts Receivable, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Inventory Management. It also specifies the conditions under which a line prints on reports and is included in calculations. Values include:

S: Stock item

J: Job cost

N: Nonstock item

F: Freight

M: Miscellaneous charges and credits

Effective From and Effective Through

Enter the effective date range to indicate:

  • The time frame during which a component on a bill of material is in effect.

  • The time frame during which a routing step is in effect as a sequence on the routing for the item.

  • The time frame during which a rate schedule is in effect.

The default value for the effective from date is the current system date. The default value for the effective through date is December 31 of the default year that is defined in the Data Dictionary for century change year.

You can enter future effective dates so that the system plans for upcoming changes. Items that are no longer effective in the future can still be recorded and recognized in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Product Costing, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Shop Floor Management, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Capacity Requirements Planning. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Material Requirements Planning determines valid components by effectivity dates, not by the bill-of-material revision level. Some forms display data based on the effectivity dates that you enter.
