For Companies that have not made the move to VPi the mysteries surrounding it will be demystified. For those embarking on the move to VPi key implementation tasks will be covered in detail. Best practices for using VPi will be reviewed. Executing the Plan (whether MRP or VPi) will be a primary topic. Suggestions on the use of MRP Recommendations and Work Lists will be presented. Many Companies have unique pieces of information that must be considered when executing the Plan. Several actual PowerLink/Integrator extensions to XA files that reduce Planner/Buyer effort will be detailed.

This presentation is appropriate for any Users involved in planning, buying and scheduling. There will be some technical content, but any extended technical questions/discussions will be taken offline.

Session Objectives:
• Any mysteries surrounding VPi will be explained.
• Attendees will be aware of the key implementation tasks and will be provided with the knowledge for a successful VPi install.
• Attendees will leave with knowledge of good execution practices including using Integrator extensions to XA files.
