Epicor to Host Sessions on the Wireless Warehouse, Lean Manufacturing and Product Lifecycle Management Featuring Real-World Customer Successes
Epicor will present a session on Gaining Efficiencies through the Wireless Warehouse and Manufacturing Floor, demonstrating to attendees the benefits of wireless technology through a case study example, as well as walk through planning and implementation for deployment, key challenges and integration issues. Epicor's session on lean manufacturing, Bringing Lean Online: Integrating Manufacturing Practices into Your IT Infrastructure, will walk attendees through a real-world example of how the marriage of ERP/MRP systems with lean manufacturing principles can help them avoid a disconnect between what's going on in manufacturing cells and what the ERP/MRP system is telling the rest of the business. The third session that Epicor is presenting, From Cradle to Grave: Leveraging Product Lifecycle Management for Competitive Advantage, will share with attendees one company's product lifecycle management journey, as well as an overview on how PLM can help manufacturers address product evolution and the explosion of unstructured data.
Epicor will also be providing product demonstrations during show hours of its next-generation global manufacturing solutions -- Epicor Vantage and Vista ERP-based manufacturing solutions, built using 100-percent service-oriented architecture. Stop by the Epicor booth (#24039) in the Exhibit Hall.
