I was able to finally get logged onto the Kinetic MES using just a browser.
I was anxious to test this because our Intermec handheld scanners are old and maintaining them is a pain - so i was hoping we could use tablets instead (cheaper and much more real estate).
I bought a Samsung Glaxy Tab A7 Lite (i know the cheapest i could find). At first i was not able to login to our Pilot Kinetic MES using just a browser ( i was getting an error message). I placed a ticket for help and support finally got back to me (one week later) with a new hyperlink. Here it is with the server numbers removed: https://ausxxxpilot000.epicorsaas.com/SaaS000Pilot/apps/erp/home/#/home/MES/home?mode=MES
I get logged on to the MES now.
However, I have run into so many errors, i can see in the first 5min this is not something I can consider using for our people.
To be fair maybe there is something in our setup that is causing the issues.
- When i try to start a new production item i get a licensing error saying i need advanced scheduling . . . I am able to start an operation (despite the message).
- When i try to start a second operation (i.e. I run two machines and need to login my time for both at the same time) I get an error that I cannot modify an accepted labor.
I have not gone any further since it would be pointless to let even our senior Power Users try this out.
Please someone tell me my system is setup incorrectly and they are using the browser only Kinetic MES 2001.2
