PPG Material Request Tool
The PPG Material Request Tool is a Windows app that will do the following:
- Create a text file in a Windows folder (set in a config,ini file).
- PPG will then import this text file as a Pick Order.
Enter the Material to request. The tool will check that the Material exists in PPG, and if not, will give a message.
Enter the desired quantity.
Optionally enter the Qualification. This must match the Material Property requirements in PPG. (Enter a Qualification only if it is required by the property of that material.)
Enter as many Materials you want to request, then Save the order. Or you can Abort the order.
A text file will be produced in the folder you specify in the config.ini file.
This output file will be imported by PPG to generate Pick Orders.
PPG needs a corresponding import profile to pick up the records in this file. Contact your PPG installer or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The utility will make requests for only the one warehouse specified in the config.ini file.
Web version available
There is also a version of the Material Request that is web-enabled — for full screen or mobile devices.
