Dynamics GP2013: Generate Item Numbers, Customer Numbers, and Vendor Numbers with Meaning


Email | Print

When creating Item Numbers, Customer Numbers, or Vendor Numbers, there are many businesses who need to utilize a logical ID scheme. While Dynamics GP allows for incredible flexibility when entering new Item, Customer, or Vendor Numbers, there is no tool that allows users to generate ID’s with meaning.

The developers at WilloWare have created a product entitled SmartParts. SmartParts is a “logical” ID Number generating tool to assist users in creating ID Numbers where each segment of the ID Number has coded meaning. For example, an Item Number might consist of several segments with each segment representing different attributes of the item. For instance, CU-RD-12 could be Copper, Round, 12″ pipe.

SmartParts allows creating an unlimited number of Masks, each having up to 30-segments, with a list of defined codes for each Segment. A Mask is the set of Segments and Codes used to create a particular type of ID Number (such as Metal Pipe). The user creates a new ID Number by selecting from the list of Codes for each Segment within the type of ID Mask they are using.

SmartParts creates ID Numbers for Item Numbers, Customer Numbers, Vendor Numbers, and WennSoft Job IDs.

SmartParts is part of WilloWare’s Manufacturing PowerPack, but can be used with or without Manufacturing installed.

    If unique logical ID is not required, hence the security of the SSL linked with the API will be compromised or not ? mypeoplesoft.com is an online community network.
