Vantage 8.0 Product Configurator

Hello Gavin,

Thanks for offering.

In the 8.0 PC, under *Rules*, I am trying to locate documentation and
examples on the (1) Calculation Rule, (2) Program Call, and (3) Rule
Function. There is nothing in the Help file on this.

Our company is going to need to write a program or a function for
Product Configurator to work for us. First question: can we write
our own Functions (item 3)? If so, where are they stored. Second
question: if we use a Program Call (item 2), what return variable and
value is the configurator looking for (e.g., in comboboxes, it is
looking for comma delimited data in the variable getlistitems)?
Also, if I wanted to send the part number (which is part of the
material sequence) in the Program Call, can it be done and how? This
will allow us to scan a table and see if the part number should be in
a particular BOM without writing code.

Please note that this is all happening under the Rules tab.

Sadly, I received and e-mail from the guy who supposedly wrote the
product configurator, and he couldn't answer these, or my other seven
or so questions regarding enhancements, without research. If the
functionality is in there, you figured he could give some advice.

We also documented two severe bugs pertaining to On Leave statements.
Has anyone had a chance to work with the Product Configurator in
version 8.0? We have some advanced requirements for the product, and
cannot get support on it from Epicor. They escalated the ticket to
development, but that was two weeks ago, and even signing my life away
to pay extra to talk to a development guru, I still can't get them to
help me.
I think with this module, someone is going to have to beta it for them
and submit tickets to get it fixed. Certain bugs we are seeing appear
release after release, so it looks like we are going to need to report
them. Is anyone running 8 live with the product configurator?

What sort of issues are you experiencing?

I work for one of the vantage partners and have done a
significant amount of work on it.
