CUSTOMER FOCUSED MANUFACTURING TO BE BOOSTED AT CIM Friday 5 October 2001 PDF Print CIM 2001 will see integrated real time customer responsiveness with the launch of the latest Vantage eManufacturing suite from Epicor Real time customer responsiveness for the whole manufacturing enterprise will be the theme for Epicor at Computers in Manufacturing 2001, with the launch of Vantage Version 5.1, the eManufacturing suite for make to order and mixed mode manufacturers. The new version will be unveiled for the first time in the UK at CIM, 30th October – 1st November, NEC, Birmingham. Features include integrated advanced materials management, allowing manufacturers to optimise demand planning. The new system includes automated planning and operations, from customer, to shop floor, to supplier and delivery. “Manufacturing companies are under real pressure to be as responsive as possible, with the ability to react to changing customer demands instantly,” stated Paul Farrell, EMEA marketing director for Epicor Software. “The eBusiness revolution is not only changing the way we interface with our customers, suppliers and partners it is also effecting how quickly the enterprise must react to changes from the outside. Fluctuations in demand are being rapidly pushed down the supply chain, meaning that the entire operation has to react, real time and on line to avoid holding excess capacity and stock. This real time reaction must go right down to staff on the shop floor. The new version of Vantage eManufacturing will deliver this capability in the most seamless, integrated suite yet.” Advanced planning in Vantage uses an enhanced memory resident real time scheduling engine. Targeted at discrete manufacturers, Epicor’s Vantage is an integrated eManufacturing suite of modules covering all aspects of an organisation including front office, back office, manufacturing and supply chain. Epicor is the world’s leading company in providing enterprise solutions to mid market companies. The eManufacturing suite delivers integrated web enabled modules for salesforce automation, marketing, support, quotations, order processing, field service management, product configuration, forecasting, MPS, MRP, resource planning, multi-plant planning, real time planning, job management, quality assurance, engineering, document management, inventory management, warehouse management, data collection, purchasing, RFQ management, sales ledger, purchase ledger, nominal ledger, fixed assets, budget management, multi-currency management, payroll and personnel, business intelligence, EDI, eCommerce storefront, eProcurement and portals.
