More Epicor 10.2.400 highlights

This post continues discussing the highlights in Epicor 10.2.400. (Here is the first part.) Especially, those related to Epicor ERP scheduling boards, mobile application, REST v2 OData v4 and Office Excel 365.

New Epicor Scheduling Boards

One highlight in Epicor 10.2.400 is the completely new design of scheduling boards. It enables you to easily detect overload problems and hanging conditions. You then can analyze schedule changes concerning cost and throughput before firmly committing them.

So what are the specific Epicor 10.2.400 major features in these scheduling boards:

  • You can drag, drop or drilldown the schedule for multi-level assemblies and operation details.
  • The new timeline enables you to observe short-run operations, based on which you can analyze the long-run impacts of operations.
  • The view indicators, including late status and material availability, proactively send you notifications of potential problems in the schedule. Moreover, you can customize colors for your personal denotation. For example, you can categorize real, possible or delinquent load by task or operation.
  • You can flexible schedule and adjust the schedule for a single task and for the whole plant. In addition, you can lock tasks for key operations or define your priority and level capacity loads by resource/resource group.
  • In case of overload or needs of overload alleviation concerning resource/resource group, you can simply drag and drop load hours forward or backward.
  • These boards allow you to display each date and resource/resource group and access resource/resource-group as well as job scheduling information. As a result, you can check the causes of the problem and adjust the schedules.
  • The what-if (or potential/possible) mode also helps to analyze potential bottlenecks before you finish the actual schedule.

However, in case of preference of  the Classic Scheduling Board, you can easily find that option in the Menu. It is the button ‘Classic’.

Mobile application for time and expense

Some Epicor 10.2.400 major features include new time & expense mobile application. On the one hand, this function target at Requestors, whose job is to compose and send timesheet or expense reports for approval. On the other hand, its objective is to help Approvers to approve or reject timesheet or expense reports more easily.

Furthermore, this application is compatible with Apple iOS 11, 12 devices and Google Android 7.0, 8.0 ones.

REST v2 OData v4

The current upgrade in REST API is another Epicor 10.2.400 highlight. Its present version 2 takes advantage of the newest OData v.4. Thus, the way to specify the current Company as well as custom ERP-specific parameters in REST request URLs becomes friendlier. However, you need to review the changes properly when upgrading to version 2.

Epicor makes it easy to get there, no matter how timeworn or modern, and Mattec uses machine interface units (MIUs), open connectivity protocol (OPC), programmable logic control (PLC), and personal computer (PC) interfaces.

Monitoring, Data, and Communication

The shop floor is a real-time environment—so your MES should be real-time too. Things happen and change instantly. Sometimes a machine was down just a few minutes more than you thought, or perhaps the scrap or part count is off— just a couple of pieces can mean the difference between a happy or frustrated customer. Real-time, automatic production monitoring and process monitoring with Epicor Mattec keeps your business on-track, and eliminates the ripple effect to customers and vendors. We’re there to help you re-connect the shop floor with 24x7x365 monitoring—data directly from the machine— and turn it into information for the shop and management, automatic notifications when and how you need them, and data to feed the rest of your Mattec system and your business.

From the “top floor to the shop floor”, it’s important to know the score, every minute of every shift, every day of the year. That’s why Epicor built a powerful out-of-the-box reporting and analytics system and delivers it in easy-to digest dials, graphs, and charts. Mattec scoreboards and displays empower front-line professionals to take action and make improvements instantly, without having to wait for days or weeks to find out how they’re doing, or if they face machine or tool problems. Maintenance, quality, and other operations stakeholders have facts in-hand to support their recommendations, and management has what they need to understand tradeoffs from every angle. Epicor Mattec MES delivers a comprehensive picture of production, from the top floor to the shop floor.

Real-Time Planning and Scheduling

Does  your production schedule ever change on-the-fly? Shift supervisors probably wrestle with it every day, even when things are running smoothly. With the Epicor Mattec click-and drag production schedule, you can change instantly based on new requirements, or watch the schedule update and adjust automatically based on actual machine speeds, production counts, equipment status, conditions, or job specifications. Epicor makes it easy to plan by showing line availability based on machine/part/tool compatibility, and the system shows you optimal plans based on prior part performance. What-if analysis combined with built-in machine capacity planning and labor and material forecasting makes Mattec the first-choice in MES. You can look to Epicor Mattec to do all your production planning and scheduling, or integrate it with any other MRP and/or ERP to enhance its powerful capabilities.
