Standard Epicor Software does not support a manufacturing model that manufactures by grouping operations using dynamic hierarchies (custom rules).  This custom software solution was added to the Epicor ERP software to enable a company to group all jobs but transact the entire group as a single transaction. Job Operations are aggregated according to a hierarchy, starting with the Operation Code, and continuing with other items, such as assembly or part numbers. Because a hierarchy may have fewer or greater numbers…

Companies justify moving to a standard enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution based on a number of compelling reasons. By supporting a single system rather than several smaller and disparate systems, they can enjoy economies of scale.  Additionally, having single application architecture with fewer user interfaces creates lower integration costs. And through common tasks automation (as well as easier access to more information), best practice systems and procedures allow for efficiencies not available when using multiple systems.

Aggregation of like items can reduce the number of required transactions, for items like Job Time Entry. For many Manufacturers, an operation is repeated for several jobs, and they could process together (same setup, same process), but the Job Part is different, and so they are segregated into separate jobs, and must be transacted separately. This can be time consuming. A customization was defined to aggregate according to rules, to allow a single user to transact Job Time Entry for…

When test results or other attributes are added on a regular basis, the ability to add a new field should be included in the customization.

However, additional tests are added to the database on occasion, and new fields must be added. In order to make this scalable, field assignment was added as a…

Integration with an outside application, such as Forecast Pro, does not always mean loss of historical data. Data can be merged with data from a newly live Epicor installation for import into Forecast Pro, including parts for which there is no invoice history (new parts). Also, monthly export for Forecast Pro does not necessarily require monthly import back into E9. Screen Examples: Company Configuration Set to Monthly Export to Forecast Pro Exported Data - Parts With No Sales History are…
