Item Creation Utility


Creating new items using standard BPCS item maintenance routines can be a time-consuming process.  Even if the user opts to create a new item by copying an existing one, the process has to be done one item at a time and the user is stepped through every maintenance screen.  In the real world, most BPCS users have groups of items that have similar characteristics, the only major differences being item number and description. 

Item Creation Utility is a low-cost utility that provides the capability to create new item numbers in BPCS by just entering item numbers and descriptions.  Other field values, item notes, and list prices are copied from a user-entered master item.  Item Facility file (CIC) records can also be created en masse for selected items.
