Advanced Production deploys batching technology that enables users to group multiple parts or operations together for key production processes. The result of this batching process is a single reporting entity or job for simplified scheduling, tracking, and reporting of labor and materials on the plant floor.
The functionality of Advanced Production is available in the job planning and resource scheduling functions within Epicor. Both planned and "on-the-fly" grouping provides powerful flexibility to end users. Additionally, users can select to plan sequentially – one operation after another or concurrently - operations to be complete at the same time for nested operations.
