Equipment Request Selection

When equipment is needed at a door, the Process.TransportationStatus BOD is sent from Infor WMS to YMS requesting that material is brought to the door for loading during an outbound shipment. Previously, you would monitor the YMS Facility Task Requests page and respond to the requests by looking up the equipment that satisfied the request through various methods. For example, using spreadsheets and performing an inquiry of the available equipment.

The YMS Facility Equipment Request Selection page can be used to configure a set of rules for triggering an automatic response for equipment moves. By automating the equipment move requests, you do not have to manually maintain spreadsheets and make system inquiries for equipment moves unless desired. Even with automatic equipment request selection rules, the situation can still exist where suitable equipment cannot be located and you need to view the move request form on an occasional basis.
