Vantage 6.10 to 8.03 Resorce/Group Conversion

I would do as much as possible the afternoon before you deliver your
database to Epicor for conversion. Use the mass replace function in
Engineering. For example, you have 4 Horizontal Mills and 4 Vertical
Mills and they are similar but not indentical. Consequently, you have 8
separate workcenters. But in v8 you intend to create only 2 Resource
Groups - a Horizontal Mill Group with 4 Resources and a Veritcal Mill
Group with 4 Resources. So in v6 create 2 new workcenters called V-
Mills and H-Mills, each with 4 machines and do the mass replace. This
will save you a great deal of time post conversion. After conversion
you will only have to add the 4 Resources to the already existing
Resource Groups. If you would like to discuss this in more detail,
please call me at 818-843-1500 - Monte Tomerlin

We are planning to upgrade Vantage from 6.10 to 8.03. There is a
conversion that needs to be completed to change Workcenters to Resource
Groups and convert Machines/Operations to Resources before they can be
used for production. Also, the Methods of Manufacturing details will
need to be cleaned up for every part. Epicor's suggestion is to change
the part(s) that are used most frequently since there is no "mass" way
to change them. What have others done and how much work is it to
change these operations? Any help would be appreciated.
