Panel Sequence, View and Sorting orders

  1. Start 'Item Toolbox. Open' (MMS200). Open the P panel and enter the appropriate panels in the field.

  2. The panel sequences in (MMS002) and (MMS003) are entered in the Default (MMS002) and (MMS003) 'Panel sequence' fields.

  3. On the B panel if (MMS200) is opened from another program, a pre-defined information view could be displayed.

  4. On the B panel the 'View' and the 'Sorting order' fields are user-defined. For further details on how to create view/sorting order, see Manage Views. However there are also default (standard) sorting orders and views as shown:

    Sorting order 1x reads over item (MITMAS):

    • 11 Item
    • 12 Item type
    • 13 Description
    • 14 Alias
    • 15 Style for fashion.

    Sorting order 2x reads over item/warehouse (MITBAL):

    • 21 Warehouse
    • 22 Item, Warehouse.

    Sorting order 3x reads over item/facility (MITFAC):

    • 31 Facility, Item
    • 32 Item, Facility.
  5. You have to generate these sorting orders by opening the P panel and pressing F14=Generate standard.

    When you select an sorting order, the corresponding view will also be automatically selected.

  6. Options

    Start 'Item Toolbox. Open' (MMS200). On the B panel there are options for all item-related programs.

    • 11=Items (MMS001)
    • 12=Item/Warehouse (MMS002)
    • 13=Item/Facility (MMS003)
    • 14=Alias numbers (MMS025)
    • 15=Related items (MMS020)
    • 16=Alternative U/M (MMS015)
    • 17=Balance Ids (MWS060)
    • 18=Stock Trans Hist (MWS070)
    • 19 = Material Plan (MMS080)
    • 20 = Available all whs's (MMS081)
    • 21 = Forecast (FCS001).

      and so on up to option 46 = 'Availability. Simulate for Material' (MMS085).

    I = (MMS001/I)

    J = (MMS001/J)

    K = (MMS001/K)

    L = (MMS001/L)

    M = (MMS001/M)

    V = (MMS200/V) This displays summarized per item/warehouse.
