What’s New in MISys Manufacturing

New Features

“Find” and “Advanced Find” Filter Persistence

MISys will apply the search criteria used in the “Find” and “Advanced Find” to any future sessions, saving and applying them automatically.  This will continue until you clear the filter, use a new search criteria or by resetting the views to the default settings.

Grouping Persistence

In MISys you are able to Group items in many of the grids (like Grouping Items by item type such as Raw Materials) by dragging the column header to the top of the grid.  Now MISys will automatically apply the Grouping from one session to the next until you clear the Grouping by either dragging the grouped column header back into the grid or by resetting the views to the default settings.

Pinning Persistence

In MISys you are able to Pin columns in the grid layout, freezing those columns on the left side of the grid (similar to freeze panes in Excel).   Now MISys will remember those Pins and apply them to future sessions.   This will continue until you unpin the column or reset the views to the default settings.

Landed Cost Adjustments

Added Landed Cost as an option for Cost Adjustments: in both Range and Batch adjustments you can use Landed as the Adjustment Basis.

Sage 300 Currency Option

Added an option to NOT perform Currency Rate Syncs at first login. This allows for manual control for updated Rates from Sage 300.

BOM Routing Cost Rollup

Modified BOM entry so that you are now prompted after changing BOM Routing Details to perform a Cost Rollup. It behaves similarly to the prompt you get when modifying the material details.

MO Process MRP Enhancement

MISys already allows you to Process MRP from a Manufacturing Order in order to purchase items for an individual Manufacturing Order (“buy to the MO”).  This new feature will generate an alert when there are components in the MRP without Qualified Suppliers defined.
