Production control starts with effective planning and scheduling. Epicor’s job management module enables users to easily access all job-related actions in one view via the planning workbench. Employees can access details for every job, giving them full insight and scheduling control. Advanced tracking capabilities keep users on top of quality, scrap, rework, productivity and material shortage in real time to increase efficiency.
Epicor’s lean production module empowers manufacturers to master lean practices. Kanban functions support pull production to automate operations and drastically reduce inventory. Everything from direct stock replenishment to visibility of future demand is managed in real time if users decide to trigger Kanban flows. To keep track of your efficiency and waste, use the production activity tracker to measure lean performance metrics.
Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
Epicor MES is an online system that offers 24/7 visibility into your plant operations. By integrating with other production management modules, MES eliminates dual data entry and streamlines everything from transaction tracking to labor reporting in an easy-to-use interface. Its user-friendly system provides real-time plant floor data to enable manufacturers to streamline processes, enforce lean manufacturing and ensure the enterprise is operating smoothly. For even greater control, Epicor’s Advanced MES (Mattec) module provides real-time machine monitoring, measures energy consumption, delivers in-depth quality management and includes other sophisticated features to optimize shop floor performance.
Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI)
Epicor EMI is the key to leveraging big data in your manufacturing plant. With over 1000 analysis choices available out of the box and a user-friendly interface, employees have access to data they didn’t even know they had. Its automated, real-time data collection provides instant visibility into your entire shop floor to enhance productivity, empower smart decision-making, mitigate risk and diminish waste. Users can also create closed-loop processes to reduce downtime.
