Epicor Server Best Practices for the Epicor Environment
Daryl Sirota, Director of Technical Services
Whether you run E10 or Prophet 21, there are key areas that you need to be looking out for. In this session, we’ll take a look at hardware resource management, common operating systems, IIS and SQL challenges, and wrap up with application layer ‘gotchas’. All content is from an ERP-agnostic perspective, so even if you’re running another application on this stack (Windows, SQL, IIS, RemoteDesktop), this session will be of value to you and your server admins.
Utilizing the Production Planner Workbench to Address Material Shortages
Brad Feakes, SVP of Professional Services
Managing material shortages across a variety of product types and fulfillment models has long been a challenge for organizations. Companies with complex bills of materials face challenges to ensure that all materials are available to support manufacturing operations. Leveraging its time-phased logic, Epicor’s Production Planner Workbench allows planners, schedulers and materials managers to ensure that the supply chain can successfully support the system’s demand.
Understanding Material Backflushing in Epicor
Diane Tschida, Principal Consultant
What is Backflushing and how does it work? In very simple terms, backflushing is an automated process to issue materials to the job, at the time of Operation completion. In Epicor, you have several options to be able to backflush labor, material quantities, or both. In this session, we’ll discuss the different options and how they work, and also the hierarchy in the system to determine how the associated materials should be backflushed.
