I’d like to improve how we handle shipping our large building assemblies. A customer orders a custom building. The ordered part number is an assembly with one operation of Op10 “Ship”. The BOM has all the detail parts/assemblies (up to 9 levels deep). The building takes multiple truck loads to deliver, and is shipped over the course of several weeks as assemblies are manufactured.
Since it’s a single part number on the Epicor order, the Epicor shipment (pack slip) can’t be entered until the final shipment is done, possibly a month later. It’s a very manual process to track which BOM details got shipped and finally enter the shipment in Epicor (which also delays invoicing and overstates inventory value).
There has to be a better way. Kits? Projects?
