All of our products look and feel like
the rest of BPCS and are available for BPCS versions 3, 3.1, 4, 5.1, 5.2
and 6. These programs use the same conventions as BPCS for function
keys (F3 to exit, F4 to prompt, etc.) so that you'll instantly feel at
home using these time-savers.
Mass Maintenance Utilities
The programs listed below provide a quick
and easy way to create, maintain and delete key data fields for many records
at once. All mass updates go through data validation similar to the

All utilities provide both an update and a simulated update capability,
with options to be run interactively or in batch mode and all produce at

Item Maintenance Utility provides the capability

Item Creation Utility is a very low cost utility

entering item numbers and descriptions.
Price Maintenance Utility allows users

Notes Maintenance Utility provides the
capability to add to, replace or delete notes for many items, customers
or vendors at once.
Routing Maintenance Utility provides
the ability to copy all or selected operations of a routing from a master
item to many other items.

and obsolete stock and to calculate stock turnover and number of days supply.

vendor, lot, purchase order, sales order, bills of material and routings
notes without being able to perform maintenance. This helps protect data
integrity while giving access to everyone in your organization who needs
