Software Expands Manufacturing ERP CapabilitiesJanuary 22, 2019
At IMTS and FABTECH, Epicor showcased its flexible, scalable enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for manufacturers, with other offerings that combine with Epicor ERP to help users repeat or avoid certain production outcomes, sell more via ecommerce, and gain a deeper understanding of their operations.
The offerings include Epicor Data Analytics (EDA), which helps turn stored data into actionable data. Knowledge gained via EDA allows manufacturers to reduce costs, identify new opportunities, support specific programs and speed up decision making, according to company officials. Another, Epicor Commerce Connect, integrates ecommerce with other business processes in real-time for manufacturers interested in online sales, and reportedly results in a modern ecommerce website focused on convenience, ease of use and repeat ordering.
Epicor Mattec MES, a real-time manufacturing execution system, monitors machines and analyzes machine-related data such as overall equipment effectiveness, run rates, scrap, yield and energy consumption. The system captures data directly from machines and operators, and delivers real-time production metrics and real-time operations analytics in a simple-to-digest visual manner. It helps customers drive profitability, increase capacity, improve quality, and empower employees on the shop floor to make better decisions using up to date information, according to Epicor officials.
