Product Data Management
Epicor Product Data Management (PDM) serves as a central knowledge repository for process and product history, and promotes integration and data exchange among all enterprise users who interact with products—including project managers, engineers, salespeople, buyers, and quality assurance representatives.
Epicor offers a solution for manufacturers that manages the powerful information traditionally contained in engineering documents, plant floor routings, change orders, sales orders and quality documentation within a single solution that is easily shared across the enterprise.
Promoting collaboration throughout the value chain, Epicor PDM provides a complete end-to-end solution to manage all aspects of a product’s lifecycle, enabling enterprises to control the enormous amount of electronic documents that they produce.
Bill of Materials
Epicor supports traditional BOM management with single-level part formats that recognizes the materials and components required to build end parts. In addition, Epicor introduces multi-level BOM management that incorporates not only single-level components and material requirements, but also internal and external routing steps for complete end assembly visibility, planning, scheduling, and costing. Epicor introduces visual engineering technology with indented tree structures and drag-and-drop BOM management.
Detailed routings facilitate planning, scheduling and costing of products more efficiently. Everything needed to produce a product is managed in one central location.
Managing changes to routings is simplified. Changes are automatically communicated to the plant floor execution system and operators have online visibility of the latest routing production notes as well as standards and resource requirements
Engineering Change and Revision Controll
Achieve control and consistency in your engineering change and revision process. Engineering Change and Revision Control is designed to enable engineering change management, multiple revision control of products, engineering workflow management, and offers detailed cost analysis of products during the engineering process.
Product Lifecycle Management
Epicor Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) serves as a central knowledge repository for process and product history, and promotes integration and data exchange among all enterprise users who interact with a product. Epicor PLM manages all documentation associated with a product throughout its entire product lifecycle, and includes full integration with more than 12 computer aided design (CAD) systems. Epicor PLM is particularly useful for companies that:
Design what they manufacture
Want visibility into, and standardized methodologies around, work flow
Use CAD systems
Use drawings to produce a quote or an order
Epicor PLM provides an electronic vault where documents can be securely stored and where access and versioning can be tightly controlled. The type of sophisticated document management that PLM offers is critical for those organizations that need excellent audit tracking and control of all documents across the enterprise. PLM also provides advanced document search and retrieval functionality. Increase your productivity by more efficiently managing the product life cycle—from design to end-of-life.
As a manufacturer, you consistently monitor product cost and analyze profitability as a way to pass on cost savings to customers while staying competitive. Epicor offers the flexibility and accuracy that manufacturers need to analyze their product cost on a customer-by-customer, part-by-part, and job-by-job basis.
Product Configuration enables on-the-fly configuration of highly customizable and dimensional products via a straightforward question and answer evaluation. Product Configuration can be accessed from quote entry, order entry, and job entry. It is Web-enabled, and is also available to disconnected users employing Epicor Mobile Connect
