Job Issue - Dummy Operation


I’m working on an integration to a surface mount machine, that will output actual job issues in a CSV format, replacing the current configuration where we have parts on backflush.

The general idea is to create a CSV file and then create the issues on Epicor via DMT or the Rest API.

Either way, we will need the assembly sequence and operation sequence to do this, but the surface mount machine does not capture this information.

One idea I had was to create a dummy operation on every Bill of Operations with the surface mount materials assigned to it. However, we would need to ensure that no one logged onto it.

Also, we wouldn’t want to be entering completed quantity against the operation.

Has anyone get any better ideas for this?
