This document describes the procedures to be followed in order to install the Kitting Programs. This document also describes the configuration options which are available and how to set these options to customize the Kitting system to meet the needs of your company.
Install the Kitting programs and put them on the appropriate menu(s). -The following programs are required in order to process kits. These programs and the appropriate data and index files should be installed by the system administrator or by Cove Systems personnel.
• Bill of Materials Maintenance (FV201s01) - The Bill of Materials Maintenance program is used to define the Kit BOM that is used by the kitting system to identify the components that are included in each kit item. Only one kit BOM should be defined for each kit item.
• Kit Building Overlay (FV075M01) – This program is called by the invoicing program when a kit item is processed in the Invoice program. The overlay creates the build transaction that is used to convert the component items to the kit item and to re-cost the kit item based on the component costs.
Set Up the Kitting Parameters in the System Control File - The Kitting programs and applications make use of the information that is entered for the following parameters in the System Control file (file 248). These parameters must be properly set up by the system administrator or Cove Systems personnel before any Kitting transactions may be processed. Please see the System Administrators Reference section of the documentation for more information about the System Control file
• KITOVL1 – This parameter determines the program or overlay that is called by the Invoicing program in order to process kits. The Current overlay is FV075M01 and this program should be entered into the code field of the parameter when the kitting software will be used.
• SOPLBOM - Determines whether the BOM is exploded (whether the component part numbers and quantities contained within the kit are listed in detail) on the Picklist for the order. If the parameter is set to Y, this BOM information is printed n the picklist and if the parameter is set to N, the information is not printed on the picklist.
• BMDEFLOC – This parameter stores the code for the default inventory location where kitting and other shop floor transactions are performed on the system.
– set flag by item
-balance fwd vs. detail (ser #) tracking
- add assign at shop completion (or during linking).
