More General Questions.

Hi Guys,
1. Is it better to "close" a production order or "technically complete" it after the production is complete? Will it make a difference?
2. What dates are more important for tracking in a production order? Basic Dates or Actual Dates?
3. I am planning on implementing cost center accounting to capture costs from the machine and labor times given in the routing. Is there any easier method?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Will give points.

Dear Rao,
1. Is it better to "close" a production order or "technically complete" it after the production is complete? Will it make a difference?
It is not the question of which is better, they serve different purposes.
TECO - The production order will not be relevant for MRP. Settlement can be done.
            Confimations and GR/GI of production order still possible.
CLSD - The production order will not be relevant for MRP. If goods movements have taken place and / or activity booking done, then "closing" is <b>not possible</b> without settlement done. Confimations and GR/GI of production order <b>not possible</b>..
2. What dates are more important for tracking in a production order? Basic Dates or Actual Dates?
Both of the dates are important and have their roles to play.
Basic dates are important for scheduling.
Actual dates are important for leadtime scheduling and consequently capacity planning.
3. I am planning on implementing cost center accounting to capture costs from the machine and labor times given in the routing. Is there any easier method?
Your plan is nice and cool.
Hope this will help you, please confirm.
Regards,
Angshuman Kar

  • Round trip workflow with proxies between Premiere and AE / a more general question about how these programs work?

    Hi all,
    I'm new to editing with proxies in Premiere and have some questions about how to handle the relationship with After Effects. Say I have a rough cut (with proxies) and I want to send it to AE to do some effects. The simplest thing to do seems to be to replace the proxies with the originals in Premiere, send the project to AE and do my thing. But if I then want to send the project back to Premiere, it will involve the original files, which are too machine-intensive for me to edit. In theory, it seems like there should be a way to send the project with original footage to AE, do effects, send it back to Premiere, and then replace it with proxies to do further editing while retaining the effects.
    This leads to a confusion about how AE works. When I do an effect, am I correct in assuming that it does nothing to the original file? If that's the case, it seems like it shouldn't matter (in the editing stage) what file AE "applies" an effect to (proxy or original). But I feel like there's a hitch in this workflow. The same question could also be asked about going back and forth in Speed Grade.
    Perhaps there is no real answer to this and the best option is to save effects and grading for after I have picture lock, but sometimes that's not entirely possible or convenient, etc.
    Hopefully this makes some sense—It's a little hard to explain.
    Thanks.

  • A few more general questions

    1) How is everyone testing the temperature their computers are running at? Is there a utility on the computer that does that? Sometimes my macbook runs very warm to the touch. When should get concerned?
    2) I have my hard drive partitioned. HD #1 has a capacity of 47gb. HD #2 has a capacity of 8.50gb. The hard drive is supposed to be 60gb, so where did the extra 5 gbs go?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hard drive manufacturers quote drive sizes based on a megabyte being equal to 1,000,000 bytes rather than the correct value of 1,048,576 bytes. Consequently a drive said to have 60 GBs (60,000,000,000 bytes) will actually have 55.879 GBs using the correct value for a megabyte. When the drive is formatted there's a slight loss of space that is allocated to the directory and the partition and disk block data further reducing the net available storage space to around 55.5 GBs for your particular drive.
    So your "extra 5 GBs" hasn't gone anywhere if you use the "correct" arithmetic.
    As for heat all MacBooks and MacBook Pros run very hot. This is not abnormal. Core temperatures for the CPU will typically run between 45-50C during idle (20-30C during sleep) and can reach as high as 85-95C under full load. Thermal shutdown is set for 100C. These figures are all within Intel specifications. Case temperatures can get very warm. Your User Guide has a specific warning about the heat.

  • Where to direct a general questions about foreign films subtitles?

    I recently purchased a foreign film "Break Ke Badd" from the iTunes store. Although, it didn't specify that it had English subtitles, I assumed it did. After the full download, I tried to watch it and there weren't any English subs. I contacted iTunes and they more than happy to refund the money back to my account. Now after a few weeks, the iTunes store DOES list Eng subs for this film. I don't want to purchase it again and have to contact iTunes for another refund...Therefore my question is, is there a general question contact one could use to find an answer to my question. Basically, to verify that this movie, indeed has English subs before I re-purchase. 
    Any info is appreciated!

    Yes I know as the [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/ Questions] section is more for desktop Firefox support and the place I linked to is for "Firefox OS" support in English where some who are involved with it do post in it occasionally.
    I would have moved that [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/962783 thread] to the "Firefox OS" English section, however I cannot as the [https://support.mozilla.org//questions/ Questions] and [https://support.mozilla.org/forums Contributor Forums] are not the same.

  • General Question re logical workflow (Multiple Products/Sales Teams)

    Currently we are upgrading from a highly customized CRM environment developed in CRM 4.0.  We are hoping to move to an out of the box solution with 2015.
    But I have a general question. We are a service company with different sales groups for each of our products.
    Currently we have customization for each service so a Sales person is assigned to a specific product for the customer.
    So my question is, how is this handled out of the box.  I am sure there are many many many companies in the same situation.
    So say 10 products with sales group for each product.
    Then a customer with multiple departments.  Each sales group needs to contact the specific department.
    So a customer could potentially have 10 different sales people contacting different people in the customers organization.
    How do you know when someone has already made contact?
    If we just look at the activities it is not very clear that contact has been made for a specific product. 
    Even with our customizations, there have been many situations where 2 sales people contact the same person at a clients office and we end up looking very unorganized.
    Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
    If this is not the right place to post this type if discussion, please redirect me.
    Thanks

    As an example, for 37-minute sequence of footage (made up of multiple clips) it's taking 50 minutes to first export a non-self-contained, time-code-reader-filter-added Quicktime.
    Did you render fully before you exported? That helps. But this is also a GOP format, and it takes longer to do pretty much everything, as it is a processor intensive format.
    1) How much more memory would help this work flow go faster, and approx. how much faster??
    None. RAM doesn't come into play here. PROCESSOR speed is all that matters. What will make it go faster is enabling QMaster to have Compressor access all cores of the processor. Or getting hardware to help with the compression, like the Compress HD from Matrox. But that only boosts encoding to H.264.
    2) Has anyone else done this type of work-flow, and been able to do it more quickly? Is RAM the issue? Any suggestions for a more efficient work-flow?
    RAM isn't the issue. Faster Processors, hardware boosting...converting the footage to ProRes before you begin editing...all help.
    RAM isn't what is hindering you here.

  • I have a handful of general questions about Firefox OS as a consumer..

    I couldn't find a better place to post this, so I'm trying on here.
    I'm in the market for a tablet (high-end), and I'm holding off on getting an Android-powered one because of Firefox OS. However, I have some general questions and concerns regarding performance, software and hardware. Here they are.
    1. Is the Firefox OS interface as responsive as a native experience on say an iPad or an Android tablet? (Is there any lag on swipes between screens, button presses, etc?) If not, will it be in the future?
    2. Will I miss the Android marketplace or the Apple app store, being restricted to only HTML5 apps? Do you think this will become an irrelevant question as the HTML5 app ecosystem grows?
    3. Do you think the quality of HTML5 apps will be inferior to those from existing app stores because they are free?
    4. Will the Firefox browser be the only one available in Firefox OS? (i.e. will there be the option to use Chrome, Opera or any other browser if the user so wishes?)
    5. Will Firefox OS include useful utility apps, such as an alarm clock, a calendar, a weather app, etc?
    6. I read a lot, both on the web (news, video game reviews), as well as ebooks. Will Firefox OS on a tablet be a pleasant experience conducive to e-reading? (Will it include a good ebook reader app?)
    7. Will there be a high-end Firefox OS tablet that is comparable in specs to the Nexus 10? (i.e. impressive screen resolution, powerful CPU/GPU, lots of inputs/outputs like USB, HDMI, microSD, etc) When do you think such a device might become available?
    8. Would it be possible to flash Firefox OS onto say a Nexus 10 or other tablet or phone if one wanted to use it as their OS instead?
    Thanks!

    1. Depends on the phone but a avererage power android phone would likely cost the same as a high end firefox os phone.
    2. HTML 5 is really the future of the web, I've heard that Firefox will let you package apps to be playable offline, but not sure if thats true.
    3. I '''think''' Firefox OS may have paid apps that will be restricted to users who buy them.
    4. I think Mozilla will be nice enough to let Google and Opera make browsers. Google let Mozilla do that with FF for android.
    5. See the simulator https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/firefox-os-simulator/
    6. too early to say
    7. too early to say, but Foxconn (helps apple) makes some apple products, so yes in the future is see a high end Firefox OS tablet 2-3 years down the road.
    8. not sure
    NOTE: Please note that we are only contributors, we dont develop firefox os.
    You can ask more on the IRC channel as there are likely devs there.

  • Migrating from procmail to sieve, general question

    Hi,
    I want to migrate a Mail-Server from 10.5 (postfix, procmail, cyrus) to 10.6 (postfix, sieve, dovecot) and have a general question about sieve.
    The current setup on this server is quite complex with procmail-rules.
    But there is only ONE procmailrc which delivers the mails as wanted (about 120 Pages of rules).
    It looks like procmail isn´t maintained any more and I want to use sieve.
    I read a lot of infos about sieve but can´t find an answer to this question:
    "How to setup sieve to use only one sieve-script-file for all incoming AND outgoing messages?".
    The above mentioned procmailrc handles incoming AND outgoing mails (e. g. Mail TO AND FROM customer X is also delivered to all users being in the group X (these groups are maintained in a FileMaker-solution and the procmailrc is created via a Script in FileMaker)).
    With procmail I only had to set up the /etc/procmailrc to include "my" procmailrc. I didn´t need to setup procmailrc-files for every user (about 80 user with a quite high fluctuation, so this is not an option).
    Where is the config-file I need to add an "include "my" sieve-script" with all rules (as I did with procmail)?
    Does Sieve also handle outgoing Mails?
    Many thanks in advance

  • Validation General Questions

    I have a couple of general questions on validation.
    1) I have a text field defined as a "Required" field (it is using the form_required template). Must I also create a NOT NULL validation on this field as well? It seems that I should not have to do this. However, if I do not create this NOT NULL validation, then clicking on a Submit button while this field is empty is not generating any error message. But when I include a NOT NULL validation, then I do get an error message.
    2) This question is related to the first. I tried creating a regular expression validation on my field in which I use the pattern
    [[:alnum:]]{1,}[|$#&_?]+
    The field should allow the user to type-in a string consisting of 1 or more alphanumeric characters (it could be a foreign language characters as well)
    and 1 or more special characters like $ or #.
    I thought this would also generate an error message if the user clicks the Submit button while leaving the field empty. But, again, I get no error message. Why?
    Thank you in advance for any insight on this.

    Thanks very much, Justin.
    When I saw the regexp_like() function in your reply, I am wondering if, perhaps, you might also have some insight into how I can ckeck if a field contains non-English type characters (i.e., mult-byte characters). I already posted a question about this an hour ago but have not gotton any replies as yet. In my post I asked about using the regular expression pattern [[:alnum:]] since the docs state that this will check for mult-byte characters. And so, I thought if perhaps there is some function I might use to return a boolean TRUE if a field contains non-English characters versus a FALSE if it contains only English characters.
    Any insight in this would be most appreciated.
    Thanks again for your help.

  • Asking general questions about 'computing' matters.

    Hello
    I'm new to the Mac world - I posted my first question on the forums today!
    I have reviewed the discussions site - everything seems very specific to apple products. Where, if anywhere, could I post a general question - like this one:-
    I have a notion that when one connects to a server directly (Usenet newsgroups for example) one makes a deliberate 'hole' in one's firewall, be it software or simply because one is using a NAT router. Sending messages to and receiving posts from Usenet is far quicker than using email, so I'm fairly confident that this is so.
    I am well aware that any URL one visits can instantly determine much information about the connecting machine. (see http://www.browserreport.com/ as an example).
    Anti-malware programs can only detect known viruses and spyware - I see no reason at all why, once one has granted a direct connection facility, between a group on a private server to
    one's own machine, malware could not relatively simply be injected onto one's computer.
    If the malware was currently unknown, how would one ever know?
    Thanks in anticipation of a helpful response

    Excellent!

    Unfortunately, not in this forum. This forum is specifically about the discussion forum itself. It is kind of like a meta-forum. Hopefully, the moderators will just move your post somewhere more appropriate. (As indeed they just did!)

    Kind of and kind of not. Firewalls are greatly misunderstood. But essentially, yes, any internet connection you establish has some risk involved. However, the risk of making an outgoing connection is infinitesimally smaller than setting up a server to let hackers bang on 24x7.
    Sending messages to and receiving posts from Usenet is far quicker than using email, so I'm fairly confident that this is so.
    Really? I don't think so.
    I am well aware that any URL one visits can instantly determine much information about the connecting machine. (see http://www.browserreport.com/ as an example).
    Not really. It depends on what you are doing. You always give away your IP address, unless you are behind a proxy. In that case, you give away the proxy's IP address. But the proxy still knows who you really are.
    If the protocol in question supports such information, then it can be determined. A web browser does send some information about you, but you can easily change it and masquerade as some other browser. With other protocols, it isn't so easy to tell what kind of OS or software is being used.
    Anti-malware programs can only detect known viruses and spyware - I see no reason at all why, once one has granted a direct connection facility, between a group on a private server to
    one's own machine, malware could not relatively simply be injected onto one's computer.
    If the malware was currently unknown, how would one ever know?
    You wouldn't
    Don't grant anyone direct connection to your machine.

  • Sorry - very general question

    I have been playing with flash for a while on a Mac but I
    have been dissatisfied. It is a pre-intel version and 1) it is very
    slow, 2) it does not support Soundforge, which I hear is quite
    popular and easy to use. Anyway, I'd like to get a PC but I'm not
    sure whether I need a standard computer or a suped up version with
    lots of memory, graphics capability, etc. Basically the sites I've
    seen have divided computers into those suitable for standard office
    tasks and net surfing and those suited for "hard core gaming." I am
    basically planning to use the computer just for flash animation and
    sound clips. Is a standard PC (that exceeds Flash's minimum
    requirements) going to do it for me? Sorry for the general
    question. Thanks.

    First of all, no need for the apology, there are no stupid
    (or general) questions.
    Second of all: sorry to all Mac fans, but PCs are the way to
    go. After all, you get to choose what company makes your computer.
    So you can get either the high-end model from HP or Gateway, or get
    something a little more affordable from eMachines or Compaq. With
    the Mac, you can only choose, well, a Mac.
    While computer shopping, look for the following features:
    (This is the BARE minimum of what your expectations should
    be)
    Windows XP Home Edition
    AMD Athlon+ 2.1 GHz Processor
    800x600x16-bit or better screen
    32 MB Video RAM (For the occasional game here and there)
    512+ MB System RAM
    Sound Card, Speakers
    If you get a computer with Windows Vista (which you probably
    will), turn off the Vista visual styles, use Windows Standard.
    (Flash has a BIG problem concerning Windows Vista visual styles,
    which is the problem I'm having now...see first page of "Flash
    General Discussions" for my post, please help! Thank you.)

    Veer,
    Good money (Wage Type /5PY) is the excess of current period earnings over any offsets from inflows. Itu2019s calculated during a retro when a claim is present. For instance:
    During pay period 01.2010, an employee leaves the company and owes 5,000. The employee does not get paid because more is owed than is payable.
    During pay period 05.2010, the employee is rehired at a salary of 6,000. When the payroll is run, the system will retro to pay period 01.2010 and record 1,000 u201CGood moneyu201D in wage type /5PY in pay period 05.2010. The calculation is:
    + 6,000 Salary

  • General question regarding "parallelism" of iPhone execution

    I've got a general question and hope somebody can shed some light on this.
    While I'm relatively new to iPhone development I've been in software programing for more than 15 years now and have a solid background in Java, C, C++, C# and other languages. I've created a couple of applications for the iPhone, easy and complex ones, some using UIKit, others using Open GL and Open AL. With that said I think it would be fair to say that I know pretty much what I'm talking about.
    For those who tend to refer everybody back to the Apple Samples or PDF guides, please believe me, I've read them all.
    Here's my "question":
    I occasionally ran into a situation where I got the impression that code on the iPhone got executed in a "non sequential" or "parallel" manner even when I did not explicitly created threads. I'm not referring to code buried in a framework or so, I'm talking about code I've written. (English is not my mother tongue, so please excuse me if my explanation might be somewhat difficult to understand.)
    I try to give an example. Assume a code snippet like this:
    _gameEngine = [GameEngine alloc];
    [_gameEngine initSomeStuff];
    In my understanding the second statement (the initSomeStuff) gets executed once alloc returns and _gameEngine for sure is a valid pointer. Is that fair to say? I sometimes got the impression that the iPhone starts executing code without waiting that a method returned.
    I had similar issues when I tried to show an ActivityIndicator while another method was doing a lengthy operation. Pseudocode like this:
    [_activityIndicator show];
    [self longLastingOperation];
    [_activityIndicator hide];
    In code like the one above: Can I be 100% sure, that the hide message is not sent until longLastingOperation returns? I ran into a situation where I had the impression that show and hide got called immediately without waiting until longLastingOperation returned.
    Final example:
    [self performSelectorOnMainThread:@selector(doSomething) withObject:nil waitUntilDone:YES];
    [self nextStatement];
    -(void)doSomething {
    [self longLastingOperation];
    1.) In the above code, I understand the idea is that doSomething will be executed on the MainThread and that nextStatement will in no way be executed before doSomething has returned. Is that true?
    2.) doSomething is supposed to run on the MainThread but does this hold true for longLastingOperation, too? Or could it be that longLastingOperation WITHIN doSomething gets dispatched to another thread and doSomething returns PRIOR to longLastingOperation been finished?
    This might all sound pretty wired but as I said from time to time I ran into a situation where I got totally confused as to how stuff executes in – or out of – sequence. I helped myself with using NSNotificationCenters etc. but I'd like to understand what's going on in detail and crystal clear here.
    Your help is more than appreciated.
    Thanks,
    R.
    Message was edited by: BeSharp

    It is never safe to assume that any allocation was successful, and while it's incredibly unlikely that you're running into any such situation, it's entirely possible for a formal protocol to declare that a given message send should return immediately without waiting around:
    http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/ObjectiveC/Articles/ch apter13_section_8.html#//appleref/doc/uid/TP30001163-CH9-BAJIGHAF
    An "impression" doesn't prove much unfortunately, so I'd recommend getting friendly with the debugger to see what's really going on.

  • SAP CM25 which profile to use and why and some general questions

    Hi there,
    I have a few general questions, if you may share your thoughts on this.
    In a manufacturing environment, is CM25 more used to finite schedule the work centers or labor or both ?
    Is it a good idea to even finite schedule the planned orders or just production orders ? We want to create production orders 1 week ahead of the production schedule and planned orders gets created 3-4 weeks earlier than production order gets created.
    The graphical tool seems to be slow sometimes when dispatching and doing some actions on the screen, has any one have any say on this. Should we need to have better computers on the floor for this to work ?
    I have been trying my solutions using CM25 and not CM21 or CM27 using the profile SAPSFCG005, is there any other profile that I need to consider and other transactions to consider like CM21 or CM27 for certain purposes?
    Thank you

    Hello
    In a manufacturing environment, is CM25 more used to finite schedule the work centers or labor or both ?
    It can be used for both depend upon bottle neck resource whether machine or labour.
    Is it a good idea to even finite schedule the planned orders or just production orders ? We want to create production orders 1 week ahead of the production schedule and planned orders gets created 3-4 weeks earlier than production order gets created.
    Better it should be finite planning for planned order also you can use MRP with lead time scheduling.
    The graphical tool seems to be slow sometimes when dispatching and doing some actions on the screen, has any one have any say on this. Should we need to have better computers on the floor for this to work ?
    It depends upon the data load and selection,
    Restrict the number of objects to be displayed, for example, select only a small number of work-centers/orders.
    Customize the time profile (transaction OPD2) such that the database read period, the planning period and the evaluation period are as small as possible. As a result, fewer objects are read and displayed.
    Refer KBA  2038780 - Tips for performance improvement on Capacity Leveling
    If you want to process more orders, check whether a batch planning (planning in the background on transaction CM40) is possible.
    I have been trying my solutions using CM25 and not CM21 or CM27 using the profile SAPSFCG005, is there any other profile that I need to consider and other transactions to consider like CM21 or CM27 for certain purposes?
    It depends upon your requirements which transaction to use and which profile. You can customize your own profile also.

  • General question on SQL Server 2000 to Oracle 10g

    Hello all,
    I just have a general question on migration from SQL Server 2000 to Oracle 10g using SQL Developer.
    How does it migrate Users with proper privileges from SQL Server to Oracle? Follow the interface steps? Or should the users be created on destination Oracle side?
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    It depends which type of migration you are making.
    For a 'Standard' migration when you migrate data a 'create user' statement is created as part of the migration and you will see this in the generated code.
    If you are using the 'Quick' migration option then you need to create the Oracle user or use an existing user to receive the data.
    Your best option is to review the documentation available from -
    http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/migration//workbench/index_sqldev_omwb.html
    or directly from -
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12151_01/index.htm
    and then get back with specific questions if this does not give you the information you need.
