IPv6 Support
(B-72355) SmartPlant Materials now supports the usage of IPv6 clients to access the application. For every IPv6 client address, SmartPlant Materials will create a unique IPv4 (not exactly the IPv4 standard) address and store it internally. Sessions originating from the same client machine will be mapped to the same IPv4 address format. Each SmartPlant Materials installation can handle up to 2^31-1, that is, 2147483647 IPv6 clients. Users can identify if a session is from an IPv6 client if the IP address that appears on the A.60.82 Database Sessions screen starts with a number greater than or equal to 256.
The IP check license routine was revised to support IPv6 clients.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 5
Administration
(CR-MA19410) Define Title-Based Approval Templates You can now define title-based approval templates on the A.20.45 Approval Templates screen.
The title-based approval template can be defined for all available approval template types. The screen layout was modified to include the new Title Based check box to identify the title- based approval templates.
If you define a title-based approval template, you assign only titles to the template in the second (Approval Template Details) block; you cannot enter usernames in the User field.
The user titles are defined on the A.20.04 User Titles screen. Prerequisites for an approver are defined on Window 2. Double-click in any field other than Title and Distribution Category to open Window 2.
Double-click in the Title field to open the A.20.04 User Titles screen where titles are defined. Double-click in the Distribution Category field to open the A.10.52 Distribution Categories screen where distribution categories are defined. The title and user mappings can be done on Window 2 of the A.20.04 User Titles screen. On A.20.04, click Assign Titles to Users or the Go to next block button to open Window 2.
Administration
Approval templates can now be defined based on user titles. The users (approvers) are determined automatically and added to the approval sequence when you select the Ready for Approval check box.

Administration
Select the project for which you want to define the user title mapping. You can map multiple users to the same title or multiple titles to the same user. Ready for Approval finds Approvers based on Title Mapping When you select the Ready for Approval/RfA check box for a requisition, purchase order, MRR, and so forth, the approvers are inserted into the approval sequence according to the user title mapping. This only happens if the default approval template is title-based.
The default approval template is defined with the corresponding project default. If multiple users are assigned to a single title, the A.20.48 Assignment to Approval Sequence screen opens, displaying the titles that have multiple users assigned.
Select the Sel check box for the user you want to add to the approval sequence and click Assign Users to Approval Seq.
If a user title mapping is missing, an error message appears. Copy Admin Setup Enhancement The Title Users (A.20.04) option was introduced to the A.20.02 Copy Admin Setup screen. With this option you can copy title user mappings from one project to another project.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 7
Administration
Approval Reminder
(CR-MA16294) The new Approval Reminder Job button was added to the A.20.45 Approval Templates screen. When you click this button, a job named APPR_RMNDR is created and the screen A.60.45 DBMS Jobs opens, displaying the new job.
You can change the comment as well as the time the job should run (the default time is set to 10:00 PM). This job cyclically checks what users of an approval list have failed to approve and – in that case - sends an appropriate invitation email. The interval can be changed by the new project default ZX_JOB_INT. The project default ZX_JOB_INT is used to define an interval for the DBMS job APPR_RMNDR.
Company Menu Enhancement
(CR-MA18887) All custom menus, screens, or reports that need to appear in the Company Menu branch in the SmartPlant Materials menu tree must be defined with the CUSTOM menu item entered in the Parent Menu Item field.
You can now create a DBMS job that reminds approvers with an invitation email of an overdue approval.
You can now add standard menus, screens, or reports to the Company Menu.
8 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
Administration To add standard menus, screens, or reports to the company menu, right-click in the Menu Item field. On the shortcut menu, select Company Menus. Window 6 opens.
Select the menu, screen, or report you want to add to the company menu from the LOV in the Menu Item field. To place a screen or report underneath a menu node, you must assign the menu to the screen or report by selecting the menu item from the LOV in the Parent Menu Item field. The number in the Sort Order field controls the display order of the menu items in the tree. Click Order Sort Sequence to re-sequence the menus based on the sort order.
The custom entries that are defined on the main window of A.30.01 are displayed first underneath Company Menu, followed by the entries defined on Window 6. The picture below shows the example defined in the pictures above.
Password via Email
(CR-MA19163) The new DBA setting SET_PASSWORD_OPTION was implemented and the A.20.05 Users and A.60.01.01 Create User screen changed accordingly. This DBA setting will be used instead of the SUPER_USER_ROLE setting to control whether a user is allowed to select the Password via Email check box on A.20.05 and A.60.01.01.
A new DBA setting controls which role has the rights to set the Password via Email check box.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 9
Administration
Message Type
(CR-MA15335) On the A. 60.31 Messages (NLS) screen, the new Message Type field was added.
This field shows the type of the selected message. The available values are:
• Information • Warning • Error
Use of MVP Views in Where Conditions
(CR-MA18792) The replacement of tables by their corresponding mvp_views in the generated views for Where conditions on A.60.06 is now determined by the new project default ZX_AQC_REP in the following way: If the project default is set to N (default), no replacement takes place. If the project default is set to Y, tables used in the generated view will be replaced by their corresponding project views (mvp).
If you are using UOM, then the tables M_GEOM_DETAILS and M_GEOM_IDENTS will always be replaced regardless of the setting of this default. The replacement with the corresponding mvp view is now also effective for the following tables: M_LIST_POS_VALUES M_LIST_POS_MODEL_UIDS M_LIST_POS_DOCUMENTS
The A.60.31 screen now shows the type of the messages.
The use of MVP (project) views is now controlled by a project default.
10 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
Administration
Separation of Duties
(B-81684) Separation of duties (SoD) is the concept of having more than one person required to complete a task. In business, the separation by sharing of more than one individual in one single task is an internal control intended to prevent fraud and error. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act does not allow any person to execute more than one of the actions listed below unless a formal statement has been made that defines exception to this rule and defines the compensating controls to monitor actions by the person allowed to have more than one privilege.
• Approve a requirement (requisition) • Approve a commitment to supplier (purchase order/subcontract) • Approve a payment (sign off on receipts)
In SmartPlant Materials, these functions are assigned to a user by privileges and screen access authorization. SmartPlant Materials now supports a generic equivalent of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Separation of Duties (SoD). SoD does not allow a user to have access to more than one set of privileges or menus that fall under a particular SoD definition, unless exceptions are explicitly defined. The definition of SoD is done on the A.60.65 Separation of Duties screen.
The picture above shows the Privileges – Menus tab. This tab is intended to create SoD definitions and to assign privileges and menus (screens).
Privileges and/or menus assigned to one SoD cannot overlap with privileges and/or menus assigned to other SoDs. That is, a privilege or menu cannot be assigned to more than one SoD. On the second (SoD for Users) and third (SoD for Roles) tab, you define the exceptions that are specified by formal statements. On the SoD for Users tab, SoD exceptions are defined for a user within a particular project. On the SoD for Roles tab, SoD exceptions are defined for a role. The new project default ZX_USE_SOD controls whether the SoD check is performed. If the project default is set to N (default), the check is not made for this project. If the project default is set to Y, the SoD check is performed when the user logs in to this project.
The check is not performed if the user logs in as SUPER USER. When a user logs in to SmartPlant Materials, the software checks all privileges and screens that are assigned to the user and all his active roles against the SoDs.
Separation of duties is critical to effective internal control; it reduces the risk of both erroneous and inappropriate actions.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 11
Administration If the software finds privileges or menus in more than one SoD, and the specified user or role exceptions do not allow these overlapping privileges, a message appears stating that logon is prevented. Example: ZX_USE_SOD is set to Y in projects PROJ1 and PROJ2. Specified SoDs:
• REQ_APPROVAL with the ER APPROVAL privilege assigned • PO_APPROVAL with the PO APPROVAL privilege assigned
These SoDs specify that the same user cannot approve both requisitions and purchase orders. User A has ER APPROVAL assigned by his role for all projects and PO APPROVAL for PROJ1. No exceptions are defined for user A.
• Log in to PROJ1: rejected • Log in to PROJ2: allowed
User B has ER APPROVAL assigned by one of his roles and PO APPROVAL by another role. For user B, PO_APPROVAL was specified as an exception in project PROJ1.
• Log in to PROJ1: allowed • Log in to PROJ2: rejected
Whenever an insert or update of an active record on the A.20.06.01 User Security for Product Groups or A.20.06.02 User Security for Projects screens violates a SoD definition, an error message appears, stating that the changes cannot be saved. User security records that are affected by overlapping privileges or menus are highlighted with a red background color in the User and Project fields on A.20.06.01 and A.20.06.02.
Identify SoD Violations
(CR-MA19982) You can now filter the displayed records on the A.20.06.01 User Security for Product Groups and A.20.06.02 User Security for Projects screens using the filter options provided with the new View radio group.
A new option allows you to identify user security records with SoD (Separation of Duties) violations.
12 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
Administration
Choosing the All option displays all user securities regardless of the SOD status. Choosing With SOD Violations will display the user securities that have violations in the Separation of Duties (SOD) definition. Choosing Without SOD Violations will display the user securities that do not have any SOD violations.
The user securities that are active and that have SOD violations are highlighted with a red background color.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 13
SmartPlant Reference Data
Spec Copy Check
(CR-MA18123) The specification copy process will now check for specification items whether the new item in the destination project is a valid combination of short code, commodity group, and part, and on failure will write a warning message to the log file.
Build Idents CIP
(CR-MA19924) A new CIP named POST_FINAL_BUILD_IDENTS_CIP is introduced in M_PCK_STD_CUSTOM. The CIP is called at the end of the build idents function in the M_PCK_BUILD_IDENTS package.
Parts without Layout
(TR-MA18162) If you click the Find Parts without Layouts button on the S.50.31 Assign Report Layouts screen, a list of unassigned parts appears in a separate window.
New SPRD CADWorx Interface
(CR-MA18795) The SPRD-CADWorx interface exports specifications and their required detail data so that they can be imported into a CADWorx project that can be used by the CADWorx application. Users can export the desired data from SPRD into text files, which are zipped in an archive with a .cspx extension that is offered to the user for download. For more information, see the SmartPlant Reference Data CADWorx Interface User’s Guide, available from the Printable Guides page in the software.
SmartPlant Reference Data
When you copy a specification to another project, the software checks for a valid combination of short code, commodity group, and part of the new specification item.
A CIP was added to the build idents procedure.
Parts without layouts are displayed in a list view.
The new SmartPlant Reference Data - CADWorx interface was implemented.
14 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
SmartPlant Reference Data
SP3D – Transfer Type Enhancement
(B-75888) An enter-query LOV was added on the Sheet field in the lower block of the SP3D 10.06 Transfer Types screen.

SP3D – Equipment Nozzle Attributes
(CR-MA18769) The number of available attributes for equipment nozzles has been increased as follows: AC10—CHAR(10) attributes increased from AC0010_081 to AC0010_090 AC20—CHAR(20) attributes increased from AC0020_051 to AC0020_080 AC30—CHAR(30) attributes increased from AC0030_031 to AC0030_060 AC60—CHAR(60) attributes increased from AC0060_016 to AC0060_040 AC256-CHAR(256) attributes increased from AC0256_011 to AC0256_030
SP3D – Validate Job
(CR-MA18908) Validate job occurs only when job stage is NO_STAGE. The mvsii_session table used to be filled during validation when starting a job, after the fill_if_tabs stage was completed. The fill_mvsii_session step unnecessarily consumes time because it is no longer used while the job runs.
The number of attributes has been increased to better support equipment nozzles.
The export job procedure was changed to improve performance..
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 17

E&PI (Requisitions)
Number Rules for Manual Requisitions
(B-79739) 1. The R.10.13 Req Number Rules screen was enhanced to allow the definition of numbering rules for manually created requisitions. The new Manual check box was added to indicate whether this rule will be used for numbering manual requisitions.
In the Req Rule Definition field, the variables DISC, DISC_ABBREV, PROJECT, REQ_SEQ, and RULE_SEQ are available for selection. The variables BOM_SETUP, MTO_TYPE, REQ_SPLIT_DETAIL, REQ_TEMPLATE, and REQ_TYPE cannot be used in rule definitions marked as 'Manual’. 2. The new project default ZR_MAN_RR can be used to specify the rule that is used as the default for numbering manually created requisitions on R.30.01 Maintain Requisitions. This project default is query based; the LOV provides all rules that are defined as manual on R.10.13 Req Number Rules. If a rule is assigned to the project default, the requisition number is created by the software when you create a new manual requisition; the number appears in the Engineering Requisition field.
If the project default is not set, you must enter the name/number when you create a
manual requisition. 3. The new ALLOW MANUAL RN MODIFICATION privilege was implemented. The users with this privilege are able to modify the requisition number/name that was generated automatically based on the rule. Users without this privilege cannot change the requisition number/name.
Approval Invitation Email
(CR-MA18904) You can use the new project default ZP_USE_CC to define whether an additional email (CC) is created when sending an invitation to approve a requisition, an inquiry, or an agreement.
E&PI (Requisitions)
You can define number rules that are used to create the name/number of a manual requisition.
The approval invitation email can now be sent to the requisition originator on cc.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 29
E&PI (Requisitions) If ZP_USE_CC is set to Y (default), the invitation email for an approval is also sent to the originator of the requisition.
Requisition Search Conditions
(CR-MA19410) The default approval template for requisitions will be selected based on requisition search conditions (defined in the project) that are assigned to the approval templates. The Req Search Name field is introduced on the A.20.45 Approval Templates screen to allow the assignment of requisition search conditions to approval templates that are of type Engineering Requisition.
The requisition search conditions are created on the new R.40.21 Requisition Search Conditions screen.
To define a requisition search condition, enter a sequence number in the Seq field, the search condition name in the Name field, and descriptions in the Short Desc and Description fields. In the second block, define the search condition details. The requisition search conditions are created based on the columns of the requisition headers and requisition line items. The
Requisition search conditions have been introduced that are used to identify the default approval template.
30 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
E&PI (Requisitions) requisition search condition details are used to build a view that results in one or more requisitions in the project. Choose Requisition Header or Requisition Line in the Column Type field, select a column from the LOV in the Column Name field, choose an operator, and enter a value in the Value field or select it from the LOV. After saving the changes, click Generate View.
If you change anything after generating the view, you must click Regenerate View to apply the changes to the view. When you select the RfA check box on R.30.01 Maintain Requisitions and the requisition is found in any of the requisition search conditions, the corresponding approval template will be used for entering the approvers in the approval sequence. If multiple requisition search conditions are found, the lowest order sequence requisition search condition is selected for copying the approval template, based on the order sequence number defined in the Seq field on R.40.21.
Reverting Requisition Approval Sequences
(CR-MA19410) When the approval sequence of a requisition is processed, the logged-in approval user can revert the approval sequence chain. The approval sequence can be reverted to a particular user in the approval chain, or the complete approval sequence is reverted. The new Revert check box was implemented on the A.20.49 Approval Sequence screen.
When the Revert check box is selected, an alert appears with the options of reverting approval sequence to a user or complete approval. If the user selects reverting approval to a user, a new window opens to select a user in the approval chain to revert the approval sequence to this user. An email is sent to this user notifying him to start the approval sequence once again. The subsequent approvers are reverted as well and must re-approve the requisition. If the complete approval sequence is reverted, the requisition originator and the first approver will receive an email.
Requisition Attributes Updateable
(CR-MA19410) If the new project default ZR_EDT_APR is set to Y, the ROS Date and Account Code values on the requisition line item are updateable until the requisition is fully approved or released to procurement.
The requisition approval sequences can now be reverted, either to a particular approver or completely.
New project defaults have been implemented to control if particular requisition fields and attributes can be updated until the requisition is fully approved.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 31
E&PI (Requisitions) If the new project default ZR_EDT_APR is set to Y, the attributes attached to the requisition and belonging to the attribute set assigned to the new project default ZR_AS_UPD are updateable until the requisition is fully approved or released to procurement. .

The requisition workload screen now provides the project LOV in enter query mode.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 33
MSCM
Cancelled Quantities on PO Requisition
(CR-MA18905) When a requisition is proposed to be used for a requisition line item on the P.30.05 Requisition Assignment screen when creating PO requisitions, those requisitions that have already been used in previous steps are now excluded from this proposal. This change is of interest in case of cancelled quantities that must be distributed among several PO requisitions.
Approval Invitation Email
(CR-MA18904) You can use the new project default ZP_USE_CC to define whether an additional email (CC) is created when sending an invitation to approve a requisition, an inquiry, or an agreement. If ZP_USE_CC is set to Y (default), the invitation email for an approval is also sent to the buyer who is assigned to the inquiry or the agreement.
Set Buyer
(CR-MA18274) So far project default ZP_SET_BUY only affected the buyers set on the bidder level (Bidders tab on the P.30.21 Prepare RFQ screen). From now on this project default also affects all inquiries. This means that depending on the setting of this project default modifying the buyer for a requisition on P.30.01 could have an impact on the buyer assigned to an inquiry and its bidders. When an inquiry is created on the P.30.01 screen, the buyer provided for the requisition is assigned as the buyer to that inquiry. Until now the user who was currently logged in was assigned as the buyer.
Inquiry Progress Payment Events
(B-79740) You are now able to add progress payment events earlier in the workflow.
The handling of cancelled quantities to be distributed on several PO requisitions was revised.
The approval invitation email can now be sent to the buyer on cc.
When project default ZP_SET_BUY is set to Y and you change the buyer assigned to the requisition (on P.30.01), the buyer assigned to bidders on the inquiry changes accordingly.
Progress payment events can now be assigned to an inquiry.
34 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
MSCM The Prog Pay Events tab, known from P.30.22 Commercial Evaluation, is now available on the P.30.21 Prepare RFQ screen as well.
When an inquiry is approved, all payment events are copied to each of the assigned bidders.
Tax ID for Bidder Selection
(CR-MA17567) The Tax ID field was added to Window 3 of the P.30.21 Prepare RFQ screen.
The Tax ID field shows the tax identification number that was assigned to the supplier on the P.20.01 Suppliers/Subcontractors screen.
Attach Documents to Approved Inquiries
(CR-MA19235) The new project default ZP_MODATTI was implemented. When this project default is set to Y, you can attach documents to an inquiry even if the inquiry is already approved, until the first quote for that inquiry is approved. If the project default is set to N, the behavior is the same as it was in the previous version. That is, you cannot attach documents to approved inquiries.
Agreement Changes
(CR-MA16376) On the Agreement tab of the P.50.07 Maintain Agreements screen, 30 attributes are now available, instead of 20 as before.
The Tax ID field can now be used for bidder selection on the inquiry.
You can now attach documents to approved inquiries.
A few changes were made on the Agreements screen.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 35
MSCM (CR-MA19691) On the Prog Pay Events tab of the P.50.07 Maintain Agreements screen, the sum of the percent payments must be 100, except no PPE (progress payment event) is available.
Alternates and Options
(CR-MA16885) Alternates and options are no longer automatically copied from an agreement supplement to the next. This does not mean that they are not available, not displayed, or not modifiable. But they are only physically attached to a supplement when they are modified. The advantage of this new handling of alternates and options is that it is no longer required to include a line item on an agreement supplement just because it was assigned to an alternate or option.
Other Costs Excluded from Progress Payment Event
(CR-MA16051) In the Other Costs tab on the P.50.07 Maintain Agreements screen you can find the new PP Cost check box. If this check box is selected (which is the default), this other cost will be included in the Total Material Cost value on the Progress Pay Events tab. If the PP Cost box is cleared, this other cost value will be excluded from the progress payment event Total Material Cost.
Agreement Supplement Progress Payment Events
(CR-MA19126) If the project default ZP_CHK_PPE is set to N and a new supplement of the agreement is created, the progress payment events are copied, but the Locked check boxes of the new supplement are not set. If ZP_CHK_PPE is set to Y, the Locked check boxes are set (as it was before).
Agreement Supplement CIPs
When you create a new agreement supplement, alternates and options from the previous supplement are only copied when they are modified.
Other costs can now be marked to be excluded from the progress payment event costs.
Creating an agreement supplement copies the progress payment events from the previous supplement, but does not select the Locked indicator.
New custom functions were added to get the status and the delivery status of an agreement supplement.
36 SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin
MSCM (CR-MA18894) The CIP functions get_suppl_status and get_suppl_delv_status were implemented into the m_pck_po_custom package. These functions can be used to get the status and the delivery status of an agreement supplement.
Invoice Handling
(CR-MA18248) Invoice handling allows suppliers and subcontractors to submit invoices that are processed and validated against agreements, then approved and exported to an external system for payment. Currently, SmartPlant Materials allows you to create invoices against period progress numbers in the subcontracting module using the Invoices tab on the SM.20.11 Subcontract Administration screen. With the new functionality, invoices can be created against agreement line items or progress payment events, other costs, and additional invoice items. The invoice can be validated against the agreement. Invoice approval can be done using approval sequences. In order to implement this functionality, the following screens have been introduced in SmartPlant Materials: P.10.54 Invoice Items, P.50.91 Invoice Status, P.50.92 Invoices, and P.50.93 Invoice Workload. P.50.91, P.50.92, and P.50.93 are core workflow screens. For more information, see Core Workflow Screens in the SmartPlant Materials User Interface Basics document, available on the Printable Guides page in the software. The following fields were added to the Agreements tab on the P.50.07 Maintain Agreements screen to support invoice handling:
• Retention % - Calculates the retention value and the paid amount of an invoice. • Invoice Check
Is set to 2 Way Check if the invoice quantity cannot be greater than the order quantity + invoice tolerance % (order quantity).
Is set to 3 Way Check if the invoice quantity cannot be greater than the order quantity or the received quantity, whichever is smaller.
• Recv Tolerance – The receiving tolerance in % is used to validate the quantities to be received for the agreement. If no value is defined on the agreement header, the tolerance value defined with project default ZC_REC_TOL is used. While receiving against the selected agreement, the received quantity should not be more than the order quantity + receiving tolerance % (order quantity).
• Inv Tolerance – The invoice tolerance in % is used to validate the quantities to be invoiced for the agreement. If no value is defined on the agreement header, the tolerance value defined with project default ZP_INV_TOL is used.
Invoice handling allows suppliers and subcontractors to submit invoices that are processed and validated against agreements. Additionally, you can approve the invoice and export the invoice to an external system for payment.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 37
MSCM P.10.54 Invoice Items This screen allows users to define additional invoice items that can be used for invoicing against agreement line items or progress payment events.
The invoice items are later used on the P.50.92 screen for invoicing. Additional invoice items can be used for invoicing only once per invoice. P.50.91 Invoice Status This screen is used to explore the agreements available across projects corresponding to the selected supplier and to create invoices corresponding to the agreement.
In the first (Suppliers) block, the suppliers appear for whom agreements were created.
If you have the MULTI PROJECT privilege, the suppliers appear for all projects you have access to. In the second (Invoice Status) block, the agreements appear with their highest approved supplement, corresponding to the selected supplier and project. If an invoice has been created for the agreement, the invoice number is shown in the Invoice Number field. The status of the invoice appears in the Invoice Status field. The available statuses are:
• Not Submitted • Needs Assignment – Submitted by subcontractor; no invoice owner assigned. • Pending – Invoice owner assigned. • Ready for Approval – RfA check box selected. • Rejected – One approver rejects the invoice approval. Enables the Request Unsubmit

Only users with the INVOICE OWNER privilege can be assigned to an invoice. Only users with the ASSIGN INVOICE OWNER privilege are allowed to assign users as invoice owner. P.50.92 Invoices This screen is used to create and edit invoices and to submit them for further processing. You can open this screen by double-clicking the Invoice Number field on P.50.91 or P.50.93.
In the first (Agreement) block, the selected agreement appears. In the second (Invoices) block, you create the invoices for the selected agreement. The invoice number can be automatically generated by the CIP procedure GET_IVC_NUMBER from the M_PCK_INVOICE_CUSTOM package. By default, the procedure creates the invoice number using the number rule defined with project default ZP_IVCRULE, and the number range defined with project default ZP_IVCRANG. The number rules and ranges are specified on the P.10.35 Number Rules and Ranges screen. When you create a new invoice, the number that was generated by the software appears in the Invoice Number field. You can change this number or enter your own invoice number.
SmartPlant Materials and SmartPlant Reference Data Release Bulletin 39
MSCM Define the invoice period in the Period From and Period To fields by selecting the dates from the calendar LOV. Select the remit to address from the LOV in the Remit To field.

(CR-MA19727) The Multi Selection LOV (Window 5) of P.70.72 Expediting Details shows item shipments depending on the setting of the project default ZP_ZEROISH. If ZP_ZEROISH is set to N, only item shipments with quantities > 0 are shown. If the project default is set to Y, all item shipments are shown regardless of their quantities. If ZP_ZEROISH is set to A, all item shipments with quantity 0 are only shown as long as they have not been acknowledged.
Intermediate Storage
(B-81519) The new P.70.77 Intermediate Storage screen has been introduced. You can open this screen from P.70.72 Expediting Details, using the Interm. Storage button on the Release Notes tab.
Forecasted dates are automatically recalculated when actual dates of a planned requisition are changed.
When you add item shipments to release notes, the display of zero quantity item shipments in the LOV is now controlled by project default ZP_ZEROISH.
The intermediate storage feature was implemented to track proper movement of materials to an intermediate location (not final destination), including cost management of storage and preservation costs per tag and per purchase order.

MSCM Finally, use the tab pages at the bottom of the screen to enter information for maintenance, preservation, and costs. Maintenance Enter maintenance data for an item manually here or use the populate functionality to get records inserted automatically determined by the values specified. A record in the maintenance table with values in the Required Date and Maintenance Required fields must be available first. Then fill in the Perform maintenance every ... weeks and Schedule maintenance until fields. This will copy the current record in the maintenance table accordingly when the Populate Schedule button is clicked. In the Maintain Events block at the bottom, you can track maintenance events by freely definable field content. Preservation Log Enter logs of preservation with these freely definable fields.
Item Storage Costs On this tab you can enter the item storage costs.
The Day In Storage value is the date when the item was received in the intermediate warehouse. The Day Out Storage value is the date when the item left the intermediate warehouse. Together with the Days Free Storage value, the Detention Day value is calculated. When reaching this date, for each day longer in storage you must pay the amount given in the Detention Rate/Day field.
The detention rate per day is calculated by a CIP. The Currency field shows the currency for the item-based costs. The currency value is the same for both storage costs and preservation costs. But it can be different for each item. The Current Costs value is calculated (by a CIP) as Detention Rate/Day * number of days that exceed the Days Free in Storage value. The Estimated Costs value is calculated (by a CIP) as Detention Rate/Day * (expected duration days - days free storage). The Offloading Costs and Loading Costs values are fixed amounts of offloading/loading costs for an item. The Total Costs value is calculated as Current Cost + Offloading Costs + Loading Costs.

MSCM Item Preservation Costs Enter and calculate the preservation costs of an item on this tab.
The Preservation Start and Preservation End values determine the time range for cost calculation of the Current Preservation Costs value, which is actually calculated by months in storage * Preservation/Month.
The current preservation costs value is calculated by a CIP. The Estim. Preservation Costs value is calculated (by a CIP) as Expected Storage Duration * Preservation Costs/Month. Costs per Release Note This tab displays the release note receiving costs as a sum of all item costs.
All displayed values are calculated by CIPs, found in the M_PCK_EXP_CUSTOM
package. The Start In Storage field shows the minimum Date In Storage. The Storage End field shows the minimum Date Out Storage. The Days Free Storage field shows the average Days Free Storage. The Detention Day field shows the minimum Start In Storage + average Days Free Storage. The Detention Rate/Day field shows the average Detention Rate/Day. The Overall Storage Costs field shows the sum of the storage costs of the items. The Overall Offloading Costs field shows the sum of the offloading costs of the items. The Overall Loading Costs field shows the sum of the loading costs of the items. The Overall Total Costs value is calculated as Overall Storage Costs + Overall Offloading Costs + Overall Loading Costs. The Currency field shows the purchase order’s base currency. All item-based costs that are entered in a different currency are converted to this base currency.
This behavior can be changed by changing the CIP code.
