Welcom to the club -- we have been in Pilot mode for 3 months now,
currently on 808f. As of last week, Epicor admitted they have a bug.
We had found MRP would allow items to go negative, without suggestions
to buy. Huge issue, affecting hundreds of our 35,000 active parts.
Seemingly random, no root cause. They say they are attempting to fix,
but our go live date of 8/7/06 looks unlikely until this is solid.
MRP stopped working on us the other day. It says it works. I can
watch it in the system monitor and it generates no error messages.
However, it also generates no jobs or purchase suggestions. Another
odd thing: in the company setup file, under Production->MRP, there
are no prefixes anymore for firm or unfirm job prefixes. Those fields
are now blank and greyed out.
Been waiting a month for Epicor to get on the stick, but have had no
response. As this is seriously impacting our ability to Pilot test...

anyway, anyone have any ideas or heard of such a thing?

thanks,

amy

We are implementing Vantage 8.0 (807a patch) at this time, and have also
found the MRP not to work correctly. We have been told that the 808d
patch will correct. Your note that 808e is causing some issues has us
concerned, as we can't be second guessing something as basic as MRP.

Amy,
Have you looked at the MRP Log that is created to see if there are
errors? We have found that if a high level of the BOM / Method is
not approved at the revision level, MRP runs OK but no Jobs or PO's
suggestions get created. The only way to see these errors are
through the MRP log file.

We're not on 8.0 yet, but if Epicor used the same logic as in 6.1,
this might be helpful.

Does 8.0 allow you to run just PO Suggestions? I would try that and
see if it works by itself. If it does, then there might be some BOM
issues. One thing we encountered were jobs set to Pieces/Hour
instead of Hours/Piece. Think of what happens between those two
settings when the value is .03! Also in 6.1, once you set up a
Plant, the Firm and Unfirm Job prefixes are greyed out in the
Company Setup MRP module. From that point on, they are set on the
Plant Maintenance screens.
