Product Life Cycle Management for Epicor ERP
Crawford Software has developed a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for Epicor ERP, versions 9 and 10. With the enhanced functionality developed by Crawford Software you now have full control of the part master and its use in the system.
At the beginning of the life cycle, allow the creation of purchase requisitions and purchase orders with a warning, the warning message will include the effective date and hold indicator assigned. All other transactions including adding to a sales order, adding to a bill of material and more will generate an error, and not allow the transaction to be completed.
As the product moves to the next level of approval, limited release for internal builds you can change the flag to allow the part to be added to bills of materials or jobs, but keep the block on sales orders or any other outbound transactions to help ensure the product that is not fully released is not sent to a customer.
Finally move to full release allowing all transactions in the system.Our core release includes template codes for an entire life cycle of the part master from cradle to grave, including references for quality hold and limited release to strategic customers.

Crawford Software has developed an “As Required” solution for Epcior ERP, versions 9 and 10.
With our solution you can flag an item on a bill of material to be consumed “As Required,”
eliminate the requirement to issue the material to a job, or to have the part planned through MRP generating replenishment requirements. Simply flag the part to be “As Required” on the Method of Manufacturing or on an individual job.
An As Required quantity field is opened for entry, for reporting purposes and referenced only, the part will not be planned, and will not drive requirements. Standard reorder point, or if you have the common parts vendor managed they can control the restocking.
A new engineering bill of material will allow you to print the BOM listing including the “As Required” quantity. The same field is available on the enhanced job traveler and pick list.
Month End Inventory and Cost Snapshot
Crawford Software has developed a procedure to capture all of your month end inventory balances and cost data with each month end for Epicor ERP, versions 9 and 10.
With our solution a job can be run manually or scheduled as a background job with a dynamic date that will capture all on hand inventory balances for all parts, owned, customer consignment, vendor consignment WIP, Inspection are captured in a monthly bucket.
The cost data for that period is captured at the same time as the inventory balances.
A customized Part Historical Part Tracker is provided as part of the solution, allowing you to view an individual month, quarter or prior year for a given part master.
The solution provides an auditable snap shot of inventory and cost data for prior periods and the data collected can be used with our additional add on solutions for calculation of safety stocks and inventory analysis.
Duplicate PO Check
Starting with the customer master a new check box is enabled for “Duplicate PO Check”. When enabled, there will be a check performed in both Quote Entry and Order Entry if the purchase order entered in the screen, has already been referenced in another quote or sales order on the system. The user can control if the pop up message is a warning or an error.
This solution is particularly critical to customers that use EDI to create sales orders by providing another check to ensure a sales order was not created twice in the Epicor ERP system. Available for releases 9 and 10 of Epicor ERP.
