6 Using the Where Used Diagram (Release 9.2 Update)

This chapter contains the following topics:

6.1 Understanding the Where Used Diagram

You can use the Where Used Diagram program (P30002X) to easily view everywhere an item is used. The primary benefit of this diagram is to quickly and clearly see a component's relationship to all other items. The diagram traces where the specified item is used through all levels of bills of material to all of the finished goods that use the item. The numbers on the connectors between items indicate the value of the Quantity Per field in the bill of material from one connected item to the next.

For example, suppose that you choose to view Item A in the diagram, and that 3 of Item A are used in Item B, and 4 of Item B are used in Item C. The diagram will show:

  • Item A on a red card (selected item)

  • Item B on a blue card

  • A line from Item A to Item B with the number 3 (number of Item A used in Item B). The number is displayed along with the unit of measure for the item.

  • Item C on a a blue card

  • A line from Item B to Item C with the number 4 (the number of Item B used in Item C). The number is displayed along with the unit of measure for the item.

Each card in the diagram lists the item number and description, and the branch/plant where the item resides. The card also includes an image if you set the Display Images on Diagram processing option to display images and an image is associated with the item.

6.2 Viewing Item Information in the Where Used Diagram

This section discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Where Used Diagram (P30002X).

  • Locate items in the diagram.

  • View items in the diagram.

  • Access programs associated with bills of material programs.

6.2.1 Setting Processing Options for Where Used Diagram (P30002X)

Processing options enable you to specify default processing values.

6.2.1.1 Display

1. Display Images on Diagram

Use this processing option to specify whether to display images on the cards in the diagram. If you enter 1 to display images, the system displays the default image that is associated with the item.

If images are attached to the item master but none are specified as the default image, the program displays the first image.

6.2.1.2 Defaults

1. Default Bill of Material Type

Use this processing option to specify a value from the Bill Type (40/TB) UDC table that the system uses as the default bill of material type.

6.2.1.3 Versions

1. Bill of Material Where Used (P30201)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Bill of Material Where Used program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0002 so that you can view an item's relationship to all other items.

This processing option enables or restricts the ability to view multiple levels in a bill of material. If you specify a version that is not set up to enable multiple levels, then you can view only one level at a time. The default version, ZJDE0002, enables multiple levels.

2. Supply and Demand Inquiry (P4021)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Supply and Demand Inquiry program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

3. Part Availability/BOM Inquiry (P30200)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Bill of Material Inquiry program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

4. Routing Inquiry (P3003)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Routing Inquiry program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0002.

5. Item Master (P4101)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Item Master program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

6. Item Branch (P41026)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Item Branch program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

7. Visual Bill of Material (P30001X)

Use this processing option to specify the version of the Visual Bill of Material program to use. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

Description of Figure 6-1 follows
Description of ''Figure 6-1 Where Used Diagram form''

To locate an item, complete the fields in the left panel, and then click Refresh:

  1. Enter the item number of an item in the Item Number field.

    This field is required.

  2. Enter the branch or plant number where the item resides in the Branch Plant field.

    This field is required.

  3. In the Type of Bill field, select the bill type used to filter the bills of material that is associated with the item that you want to locate.

    The Type of Bill field lists the values in UDC 40/TB. You can specify a value in the Default Bill of Material Type processing option to provide a default value. You can change the value as needed.

  4. In the As of Date field, enter the date used to filter the bill of material for the item that you want to view.

    The items associated with a BOM can change. For example, you might begin using parts from a different manufacturer beginning on a specific date. Use this field to locate the item/BOM association as it existed on a specific date. If you do not enter a date, the system uses the current date.

  5. In the Grade field, select a grade used to filter the bill of material.

    The values in the Grade field are from UDC 40/LG.

  6. In the Potency field, enter a potency to filter the bill of material.

    If a potency is indicated for the item in the item record, then the system displays the potency in this field.

6.2.4 Viewing Items in the Diagram

After you filter the bill of material to locate the item you want to view, the system displays a card with the item you selected to view, and the items that use the selected item. If you set up the processing option to display them, the cards also include an image of the item.

Note:

The item that you searched for appears in a light red card.

The following list describes the actions that you can perform and the information that you can view in the where used diagram:

  • View cards in a larger size.

    If the item you selected to view is used in a lot of subassemblies, you might need to view each card in a larger size to see the details on the card. You can click the card and then click the Isolate icon at the top of the card to view the card in a larger size. When you isolate a card, only the card that you isolate appears on your screen. Click the Additional Links icon to view where the item is used. Click the Restore icon to return to your original view.

  • Change the view size.

    The control panel has icons that enable you to zoom in, zoom out, and zoom to a size that fits the entire diagram on one page. You can also use the scroll wheel on your computer mouse to increase and decrease the size when you hover your mouse over the diagram.

  • Move the diagram.

    While hovering your mouse over the diagram, you can hold down your left mouse button to move the diagram on the screen.

6.2.5 Accessing Programs Associated with Bills of Material

Right-click an item's card to view a list of programs that you can access from the Where Used Diagram program. When you access programs from the Where Used Diagram program, the system opens the version of the program that you specified in the processing options.

The system sends the item number and branch/plant of the item to the program that you open. If you make changes to the item or bill of material in the program that you access, you can see your changes in the Where Used Diagram after you click Refresh.

The following options enable you to access programs used for items and bills of material:

  • S/D Inquiry

    When you click S/D Inquiry, the system opens the Work with Supply and Demand form of the Supply/Demand Inquiry program (P4021).

  • Part Availability/Bill of Material Inquiry

    When you click Part Availability/Bill of Material Inquiry, the system opens the Bill of Material Inquiry - Single Level form in the Bill of Material Inquiry program (P30200).

  • Routing Inquiry

    When you click Routing Inquiry, the system opens the Work with Routing Operations for in the Enter/Change Routing program (P3003).

  • Item Master

    When you click Item Master, the system opens the Work With Item Master Browse form in the Item Master program (P4101).

  • Item/Branch

    When you click Item/Branch, the system opens the Work With Item Branch form in the Item Branch program (P41026).

  • Visual Bill of Material

    When you click the Visual Bill of Material, the system opens the Visual Bill of Material form in the Visual Bill of Material program (P30001X).

6.3 Using the Where Used Diagram in a CafeOne Layout

The Where Used Diagram program is an ADF application. When you use an ADF application in a CafeOne layout, you must set up the parameters that the calling EnterpriseOne application in the layout uses to interact with the ADF application.

This list describes the parameters available for the Where Used Diagram program:

  • Item Number - Unknown Format Entered

    Use this parameter to map to the source of the item number. You must set up this parameter.

  • Business Unit

    Use this parameter to map to the source of the branch/plant of the item. You must set up this parameter.

  • Type Bill of Material

    Use this parameter to map to the type of bill of material that includes the item.

  • As of Date

    Use this parameter to map to the source of the date. If you do not map a source, the system uses the current date.

  • From Grade

    Use this parameter to map to the source of the grade.

  • From Potency

    Use this parameter to map to the source of the potency.

If you select a value for any parameter, the left pane of the Property Location Map is collapsed when you access the layout. You can expand the pane and change the value in the search fields.

For each of the parameters, you can select the is mapped to operation and select a value from the calling EnterpriseOne application. Or, you can select remains as if you do not want to specify a value.

The following image shows the Edit mode of a CafeOne layout that includes the Where Used Diagram, with the Bill of Material Inquiry program (P30200) as the connected EnterpriseOne application. In the image, the Item Number - Unknown Format Entered and Business Unit parameters are specified.
