PO Close Processing

PO Close Processing

 

Application Overview

 

The P/O Close Processing allows you to close a line item on a purchase order or the entire purchase order. Before Elliott V7.4 you could flag the PO as closed, however nothing really happened until you purged the closed PO.  Still, the quantity on order and ATP details would appear in the system.  Since most Elliott users were reluctant to purge the closed PO, the PO close process was not very functional.

 

In Elliott V7.4, we have addressed many Close PO issues: 

(1)     You can now close a PO at the individual line item level.  This gives you a lot of flexibility since the entire PO does not have to be closed.  In addition, when a PO Line Item is closed the Quantity on Order and ATP details will be reflected in real-time, even though the closed PO Line Item has not been purged.  Flexibility extends further by allowing the user to unclose the line item if closing was a mistake, restoring the line item back to its original state without any consequences.  This function will give you much more control over the PO quantity in advance when the goods are on the ocean.  As discussed previously with the new ATP, when goods are on the ocean you can input (or import) the receiving transactions and put them on hold.  This will result in the pending receiving showing up in ATP to help customer service identify the goods on the ocean.  This can assist you with making the decision of whether the balance quantity on a PO should be closed or not.  You may close a PO line item even though there are receiving transactions for that PO line item.

(2)     A new batch utility allows users to close the PO Line Items based on certain selection criteria.  For example, you may choose to close all PO Line Items that are over three months past due.  You can run a pre-view report to verify the line items before you commit to closing PO Line Items in mass. 

(3)     Similarly, a batch utility has been introduced to allow the user to close the entire PO based on certain selection criteria.
