Item Revisions for a Buyer
The Buyer Items
option in the Buyers
object now displays
item revisions,
including the current
revision and other
revisions for each
item. For example,
from a buyer in
Procurement
Management (PM),
users can now see a
list of all items
assigned to that buyer
and all revisions of
those items.
11
Item Status – Impact on PM
• With Release 9, every item revision must have an implementation status.
• An implementation status can be assigned to more than one item
revision.
• The Release to purchasing attribute controls whether a requisition or
purchase order can be created for an item revision.
• The Procurement Management (PM) application uses this status code to
determine whether a requisition or purchase order can be created for an
item revision.
• If the Release to purchasing status is set to Yes, the purchase order
creation for the item revision can proceed. If set to No, the purchase order
create function cannot process the item revision.
• The Release to purchasing attribute provides an additional level of control
for which revision of an item is eligible for purchase.
12
EPDM – Item Revision Changes which could
impact Purchasing
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Stocking UM /Enterprise Item - All revisions of an item within an enterprise will use the same
unit of measure for stocking the item.
Inventory code/Enterprise Item -All revisions of an item within an enterprise will be the same
classification in inventory.
Unit Cost Default /Site (default value) -The unit cost can vary by revision between and within
sites for this item. For convenience, the Unit Cost Default value of the current revision is stored
at the Site Item level.
Batch/lot control /Site -All revisions of an item within a site will have the same batch/lot control
setting.
Discrete allocations /Site -All revisions of an item within a site will have the same discrete
allocations setting.
Inspect-on-receipt /Site -All revisions of an item within a site will have the same inspect-onreceipt setting.
Item type /Site (in some cases) For item types 1-9, the value can vary by revision. The default
value is stored at the Item Site level. 0 must be same.
QC (shelf life) /Site- All revisions of an item within a site will have the same QC value
Shelf life days /Site - The default value is stored at the Item Site level, but the value can be
overridden within revisions.

Vendor Enhanced Security
• Two new field security categories have been added
to maintain separation of duties. The VNDPUR
category controls which users are authorized to more
than forty PO-related fields in the Vendor object.
Another category, PAYMENT, controls about two
dozen payment-related fields in the PO and related
objects. This field security applies only to the client,
not the legacy (green screen) functions. Companies
desiring this feature will need to set up security so
that the only way for users to maintain vendors,
vendor items, POs, buyers and items is through the
client.

Shipment Notices
A Shipment Notice is an Advance Ship Notice (ASN) from your vendor of what you can expect
in an upcoming shipment. It may have one or more line items, from one or more purchase
orders, and can optionally describe what items are in one or more containers. Since an ASN is
what the vendor actually shipped, it makes it much easier to receive a shipment. Instead of
looking up POs and doing partial receipts, receiving personnel can simply receive by ASN--the
whole thing, one container at a time, or item-by-item.
The system knows what PO line items quantities were shipped, so the PO data is updated
32
properly as receipts are processed.

IDF PURCHASING TASK OBJECT
The IDF Level 1 interface streamlines the access between PowerLink applications and the XA applications.

IDF FUNCTIONALITY- XA Development Framework
•
•
•
•
•
•
Provides an integrated flow for users when working with information in both PowerLink and in the functions previously only accessible in the XA legacy applications.
Provides access to the IDF Level 1 tasks related to that application or to the Power-Link
functions on the application card.
Allows a user to enter information or to select the options required to perform the task.
An IDF Level 1 application window contains the icons users click to start specific tasks.
XA organizes the icons in groups of related tasks. Each task icon starts a specific task.
The IDF Level 1 windows cannot be customized in the same way that Power-Link
windows can. Also, some advanced Power-Link functions, such as broadcasting and
receiving information among application windows or attaching outside files to
application records, are not available for IDF Level 1 functions.
IDF Level 1 does provide an Additional Tasks feature that allows users to add frequently
used options to the IDF Level 1 application windows through the Menu Maintenance
function in Cross Application Support
