We are implementing 8.0 and we give every bundle of material we create
a unique sequential number. There are multiple bundles with varying
amounts of pieces in a job, but we Produce, and schedule by the foot or
piece. Is anyone out there creating bundle tags successfully ( with
our current system the lot number is the tag number and every bundle is
a new lot).? Our PM says it will require custom code.
More or less we have done this.
Using AMM and data collection I generate labels that print upon "reporting
quantity". Employees are instructed to report quantity at each "stack".
The label generates a number based on the LaborDtl.LaborDtlSeq and the time
(seconds past midnight). The number both ensures uniqueness and gives
traceability without having to get into lot numbers being entered on the
system.
This feature is not anything Epicor created or sponsored, but I created it
using only tools within the system (BAM) and wasp label software to print
the label. It may be a bit of a trick to convert the system over to 8.0,
but for now on 6.1 it works slick.
Let me know if you need more details.

We are implementing 8.0 and we give every bundle of material we create
a unique sequential number. There are multiple bundles with varying
amounts of pieces in a job, but we Produce, and schedule by the foot or
piece. Is anyone out there creating bundle tags successfully ( with
our current system the lot number is the tag number and every bundle is
a new lot).? Our PM says it will require custom code.
