MES Blank Title 87762

We have 20-30 jobs and it works fine.


But we realised that if you just log out and don't clock out for more than a couple of days it gets slower and slower.

HI Everyone,

Does anyone know how to prevent a user from clocking onto more than one job at a time on the MES? I am thinking a BPM would work but I am not sure where to start.

Here's a dumb question... we've gone so long without using the MES side
of Vantage that I don't remember how one logs into it. Can someone
please enlighten me?



Thanks,

It is a separate icon from Vantage the target is adding the -MES

C:\client803\client\MfgSys.exe -MES

V8? Copy your regular shortcut and edit it and put " -MES" at the end of
the command.



Example:

C:\epicor\client8034\client\MfgSys.exe -MES

Does anyone know of a way to have multiple MES customization's? We would like one MES screen for Supervisors and another MES screen for the machine operators. What are some of the ways you control something like that? A more specific example might be a 'Material Transfer' It would be nice if the operator could see that button but once pressed it would require credentials from a supervisor? I'm just shooting in the dark I have no clue what I can do with MES.
Create TWO menus for MES one with Cust1 another with Cust2 on the machines
which you need the seocond cust change the MFGSYS file to use the
appropriate menu
That's the easy way,

You can also do what you suggested with some simple logic, maybe a flag or
two in the UserFile record..

So you can specify which MES customization to open from the MFGSYS file? Interesting, ok something to think about thank you.

Yep, exactly. In the c:\client803\client\config folder, you have have many XXXX.mfgsys files. Modify your target path on your MES icon to utilize the appropriate .mfgsys file for your MES customization. Look for: <MESCustomMenuID value=""


There’s an Answerbook on this on Epicweb (#5213MPS).

PROBLEM:

How do you customize the main MES Menu and set to use it instead of default?

SOLUTION:

1. Right-click on the shortcut for Vantage 8.0 MES.

2. Copy and paste the copy to the desktop.

3. Rename the copy to something like MES Developer.

4. Right-Click and choose Properties.

5. In the Target area, locate where it shows -MES and change it to -MESC.

6. Click OK to save the changes.

7. Login to MES Developer.

8. Make your customizations and choose Save as

9. Give your customization a name (i.e CustomMES)

10. Save and close MES

11. Log into a your a regular 8.0 session

12. Go to System Management >> Utilites >> Sub Process Maintenance

13. Create a new menu ID and give it a name e.g UDMES1

14. Choose the security you want to apply to this option

15. Enter a parent process like PROCESS or MAINMENU

16. Enter a unique number for the sequence like 10, 15, 20, etc.

17. Under the Program section browse to or type in Epicor.Mfg.Menu.Mes.dll

18. Choose the Customization name you saved in steps 4/5 from the list box

19. Save and close Sub Process Maintenance

20. Create a Process Calling using System Management >> Utilities >> Process Calling Maintenance

21. Choose File >> New

22. Process Called Reference = Epicor.Mfg.Menu.MES

23. Menu ID = UDMES1 (Menu ID create in step 13)

24. Save and close Process Calling Maintenance

25. Add the process ID you just created in step # 13 as the value for the MESCustomMenuID node in the
xxx.mfgsys file being referenced by your MES icon

<MESCustomMenuID value="UDMES1" /> This should be listed under the <appSettings>
</appsettings> section. If the icon does not reference mfgsys use the default.mfgsys found
the ...epicor/client/config directory.

26. Log into 8.0 MES again and you should now see your customization.

Note 1: When first installed you will need to change the xxx.mfgsys file used by each MES user. You'll find
this file in the config directory of the epicor client folder e.g. c:\epicor\mfgsys803\client\config

Note 2: In a standard implementation of Vantage the name of the file being changed is default.mfgsys.
HOWEVER, this can change based on your installation of Vantage. For example if you are running against a
test or pilot database the file maybe named test.mfgsys or pilot.mfgsys. You may want to check the port
number of the appserver that MES is using agains the AppServerURL value="AppServerDC://LAPIZ:8301"
statement in the default.mfgsys.

Note 3: Be sure to change the one in the Vantage client config directory stored on the server. This way
when you install a new release of Vantage and the client folders are updated the modified xxx.mfgsys is
downloaded.

Does anyone know if there is a limit how many jobs someone can have active at one time in MES?
I know that I've tested with an operator clocked into 12 jobs at one time
and it seemed to work fine... E9.05.606A

We routinely clock 30 to 50 with one operator.
