Prerequisites

To complete the workshops in this course, the necessary modules must be licensed and operating in your training environment. For more information on the modules available, contact your Epicor Customer Account Manager at EpicorCAM@epicor.com. It is also important you understand the prerequisite knowledge contained in other valuable courses.

Navigation Course - This course introduces navigational aspects of the Epicor application's user interface. Designed for a hands-on environment, general navigation principles and techniques available in two user interface modes - Classic Menu and Modern Shell Menu. Workshops focus on each of these modes and guide you through each navigational principle introduced.

Order Management Course - This course discusses the Order Management module and how it facilitates the flow of manufactured items from inventory or jobs to the customer. A shipping transaction is performed whether items are shipped from stock or from work in process (WIP). Shipping transactions are captured during invoicing in the Accounts Receivable (AR) module, creating financial transactions that post to the general ledger (GL). Order entry and shipping are directly affected by the nature of the product and the process, specifically whether the items are built-to-order or shipped from stock.

Engineering Course - This course outlines the creation of a new part, engineering of a method of manufacture (MOM), approval of a method, and creation of a method available for use. Methods can be used in the quoting process, job entry, or as the basis for a new method.

Parts Course - The Parts course introduces the user to the building blocks that make up the cornerstone of ERP software, the Part Master file. This course focuses on the importance of the Part Master file, required subsidiary file setup, key fields in the part master, set up of a manufactured part and a purchased part, and review of commonly used reports and inquiries.

Recommended Knowledge: Computer and Internet Navigation Basics - The application software operates in a Microsoft Windows ® environment; therefore, knowing how to navigate in a Windows environment

and how to navigate on the Web will facilitate the training experience. Navigation tools users should be familiar with include computer hardware components such as the keyboard and mouse, navigation keys on the keyboard such as the Tab and Enter keys, and navigation buttons such as the Back button.

Environment Setup

The environment setup steps and potential workshop constraints must be reviewed in order to successfully complete the workshops in this course.

Your Epicor training environment, in which the Epicor demonstration database is found, enables you to experience Epicor functionality in action but does not affect data in your live, production environment.

The following steps must be taken to successfully complete the workshops in this course.

1. Verify the following or ask your system administrator to verify for you:

Your Epicor training icon (or web address if you are using Epicor Web Access) points to your Epicor training environment with the Epicor demonstration database installed. Do not complete the course workshops in your live, production environment.

the course workshops in your live, production environment. Note It is recommended that multiple Epicor demonstration

Note It is recommended that multiple Epicor demonstration databases are installed. Contact Support or Systems Consulting for billable assistance.

The Epicor demonstration database is at the same service pack and patch as the Epicor application. Epicor's education team updates the Epicor demonstration database for each service pack and patch. If your system administrator upgrades your Epicor application to a new service pack or patch, he or she must also download the corresponding Epicor demonstration database from EPICweb > Support > Epicor > Downloads and install it. If this is not performed, unexpected results can occur when completing the course workshops.

Your system administrator restored (refreshed) the Epicor demonstration database prior to starting this course. The Epicor demonstration database comes standard with parts, customers, sales orders, and so on, already defined. If the Epicor demonstration database is shared with multiple users (that is, the database is located on a server and users access the same data, much like your live, production environment) and is not periodically refreshed, unexpected results can occur. For example, if a course workshop requires you to ship a sales order that came standard in the Epicor demonstration database, but a different user already completed this workshop and the Epicor demonstration database was not restored (refreshed), then you will not be able to ship the sales order. Epicor's education team has written the course workshops to minimize situations like this from occurring, but Epicor cannot prevent users from manipulating the data in your installation of the Epicor demonstration database.

2. Log in to the training environment using the credentials manager/manager. If you are logged into your training environment as a different user, from the Options menu, select Change User.

3. From the Main menu, select the company Epicor Education (EPIC06).

4. From the Main menu, select the Main Plant.

Overview

Overview

Sales Kitting Course

There are times when parts need to display on a sales order as a single line item. When a product line comes with additional parts that need assembling by the customer, this is where the sales kit functionality becomes important.

What is a Sales Kit?

A sales kit is a collection of assembled or unassembled parts that could be sold separately but are bundled and sold as one component.

For example, during the order process when purchasing a computer system, all the components of the computer system are chosen by the buyer such as the monitor size, the style of the keyboard and mouse, and the size of the hard drive. In reality, the customer is purchasing a computer system, not several separate items. Pricing varies based on the components selected.

Another example of a sales kit is a bookshelf. Most of the time, when a bookshelf is purchased, the box contains the same basic pieces used to assemble the shelf. It contains the shelves, the side panels, the base board, the backing, and all of the pegs and nails. However, the customer is not buying three shelves, one base board, one backing, 12 nails, six pegs, and so forth. The customer is buying a bookshelf. For this particular item example, pricing is based on the bookshelf, not the individual pieces.

Important Sales kit components must be marked as stocked items in Part Maintenance. For example, you Sales kit components must be marked as stocked items in Part Maintenance. For example, you cannot ship a sales kit component directly from a job as it must be first received to inventory.

How is a Sales Kit Priced?

There are two methods used in the Epicor application to determine the price of a sales kit:

Component Pricing - Select to roll up the individual sales prices of each kit component to calculate the sales price for the kit. This option is automatically selected for a kit whose components can be shipped as individual line items. The Must Ship Kit Complete check box is blank for the kit. This setting can not be changed.

Parent Pricing - Select to use the sales price of the sales kit item as the sales price of the kit. Although there are costs involved with the individual components when the kit is priced, the individual components are not priced.

Why Create a Sales Kit?

Creating a sales kit informs the shipping department of all the pieces and components needed to go into the box when the item is shipped.

Where is a Sales Kit Created?

You create the component parts and the sales kit part in Part Maintenance. Details are attributed to the part, such as its name, description, type, selling price, group, and class.

Menu Path: Sales Management > Order Management > Setup > Part

Tip The CRM menu path is: Customer Relationship Management > Order Management > Setup > Part The CRM menu path is: Customer Relationship Management > Order Management > Setup > Part

Once you establish these parts, you create a link between the component parts and the sales kit part using the Engineering Workbench.

Menu Path: Production Management > Engineering > General Operations > Engineering Workbench

You select the materials to be included in the sales kit in the Engineering Workbench.

Sales Kitting Course

This section reviews common maintenance program factors that apply to the sales kitting process.

Create the Sales Kit Part

The first step is to create a sales kit part and components that make up the kit. Once you enter the part, it can be selected for a quote, a sales order, or a job. It is also possible to create new revisions for the sales kit part, allowing for slight variations in the engineering of the sales kit.

For example, if your company manufactures wooden bookshelves made of pine, oak, maple and cherry wood, the sales kits is engineered to include the use of these various woods, depending on the customer order.

Part Maintenance

Use Part Maintenance to enter or update part information. Parts are either purchased items you use for raw materials or subassemblies or manufactured items you use to fill sales orders.

Each part record contains crucial data you may need for purchase or production needs. A part record contains general information such as part number, description, and search criteria. Also, a part record defines inventory information, which includes unit of measure (UOM) options for sales, purchases, inventory, non-stock classifications, serial number tracking, and weight values. You also define warehouse and bin information for each part, including Minimum, Maximum, and Safety Stock quantities. If this part is included in a sales kit, define these parameters as well.

When you set up a part, you can access it from each site within the company, and use it on jobs. You can also select parts as materials on quote, job, or part methods of manufacturing. If you use the Engineering module, purchased or manufactured parts on a bill of material must have a record set up in Part Maintenance.

Tip Most modules do not require parts to exist in Part Maintenance, but it is recommended that you enter parts in this program, as each record requires little data and can save you data entry time later.

For CRM users, the Main Menu appears as:

Customer Relationship Management > Configurator Management > Setup > Part

Customer Relationship Management > Order Management > Setup > Part

Detail

Use the Part > Detail sheet to set up new part records and to modify the main details of existing part records.

The following are the key fields:

Type

Select the type code that indicates if you normally purchase or manufacture this part, or sell it as a sales kit.

Purchased - Parts you normally purchase from external suppliers and use as raw materials.

Manufactured - Parts you normally manufacture and sell to your customers.

Sales Kit - Sales kit parts that are sold together as a sales kit. Selecting Sales Kit activates fields on the Sales Kits sheet. Use the Sales Kits sheet to select configuration options for the kit. To access the Sales Kits tab, first click the Plant tab. When you select Sales Kit as the type for a part, you are effectively setting up the part as the kit parent item. To add other parts to the sales kit, you must create a new bill of materials for the kit parent item. The procedure is described in the Part Maintenance - Sales Kits help topic.

The Epicor application uses the associated type code as a selection criterion on various reports and searches, including Part Search. It does not restrict the use of this part in any way. You can choose to manufacture any part that has "Purchased" selected as its type, and you can choose to purchase any part you indicate is manufactured.

Non-Stock Item

When selected, this check box indicates that this part is not normally stocked within your inventory. Both purchased and manufactured parts can be either stocked or non-stocked. If you enter a non-stocked part in the Part Master file, its default description appears (just like stocked items) when you enter the associated part number on an order or a job.

The Non-Stock Item indicator controls the default Manufacture value for order releases in Sales Order Entry, and the default Purchase value for material requirements in Job Entry. Non-stock items default as Make or Purchase when they are entered in these programs.

If a part is selected as Non-Stock, the item defaults as a Pull as Assembly and View as Assembly if it is involved with a bill of material, when processing MRP, and when the Epicor application generates PO suggestions. If you choose, non-stocked parts can be excluded from various inventory reports.

Example You take an order for a part you have not made before and do not expect to make again. The part should be entered into the Epicor application and designated as a Non-Stock part. The part appears in the parts search browser when you enter the order. When you select the part from this browser the associated part description automatically appears in the order. By default, the Epicor application marks the item as a manufactured part in the order, indicating that you do not have the part on hand, but must make it.

that you do not have the part on hand, but must make it. Selecting this check

Selecting this check box activates the Quantity Bearing check box. The Epicor application selects the Quantity Bearing check box by default, indicating that the Epicor application supports full inventory functionality for this part. To clear the Quantity Bearing check box, you must first select the Non-Stock check box. When the Quantity Bearing check box appears as cleared, the Epicor application does not maintain inventory on-hand balance for the part.

Application Setup

Sales Kitting Course

Phantom BOM

Select this check box if this part is a phantom. A phantom bill of material represents a part that is built, but not stocked before it is used in the next level of manufacturing. When a part is designated as a phantom, the Epicor application moves all related operations and materials up a level in the bill of material for the end item, and this assembly part number disappears. In addition, it also moves up attached or associated drawings and other information.

Example Your main product is a sound mixer board SoundBoard100. Internally, your staff refers to three "zones" that make up the board - the input/output jacks, volume controls and meters, and the power area. Each zone requires its own special operations and materials, and it makes sense to treat them as their own bills of material. However, the zones are not manufactured separately from the sound mixer board. You could set up parts ZoneA, ZoneB, and ZoneC and mark them as phantoms, and then assign the applicable operations and materials to the various zones. When you use the Get Details program for SoundBoard100, the Epicor application lists manufacturing details zone, and then collapses them. This provides you with a single listing of all operations and materials for the board.

listing of all operations and materials for the board. The Phantom BOM check box is not

The Phantom BOM check box is not available if the following conditions are true:

The Purchased radio button has been selected.

The Non-Stock Item check box has been cleared.

The Non-Stock Item check box has been selected, but you have also selected one (or more) of the following check boxes: Track Lots or Track Serial Numbers.

Sales Kits

Use the Part > Plants > Sales Kits sheet to set up a sales kit processing rules. The configuration options on this sheet enable you to instruct the Epicor application on such issues as kit updates, shipping, and pricing.

A kit parent is the part name for which you set up configuration options. Once you select the kit configuration

options on the Sales Kits sheet of the kit parent, add components to build the kit. You do not need to set up configuration options for individual components. Configuration options set up for the kit parent apply to the entire kit.

The following are the key fields:

Allow Component Update

By default, this check box is clear. This means users will not be able to make changes to kit components during Quote Entry or Sales Order Entry. The Kits Detail sheet in Sales Order Entry and Quote Entry will display the details of kit components, but the fields on the sheet will be disabled to prevent changes. This effectively sets up the kit as a standard kit.

If you select this check box, users will be able to update kit components when entering a quote or sales order

for the kit. Fields on the Kits Detail sheet in Quote Entry and Sales Order Entry will be enabled to allow changes to kit components. This effectively sets up the kit as a custom kit.

Allow Parameter Changes

By default, this check box is clear. This prevents users from either viewing or changing the configuration parameters you select on this sheet when they are entering a quote or order for the kit.

If you select this check box, users will be able to view and change these parameters during Quote Entry and Sales Order Entry by clicking the Sales Kit Params button on the Lines Detail sheet of both those programs.

Sales Kitting Course

Application Setup

Backflush Kit Components

By default, this check box is clear. This means that each component part will need to be pulled individually from stock when the kit is being shipped. Users will need to enter the location from which kit components were picked, and will not be able to change the quantity of the components in Shipment Entry.

If you select this check box, all kit component parts will be automatically pulled from stock. Only the quantity of the kit parent item will need to be entered in the Shipment Entry program. When backflushing, kit components lines are shipped in quantities related to the parent part, as defined in the bill of materials.

Example A kit for a desk might contain 1 desk, 16 screws, and 4 legs. If two kits are being shipped, the quantities of all components will be multiplied by 2 (2 desks, 32 screws, and 8 legs).

will be multiplied by 2 (2 desks, 32 screws, and 8 legs). Must Ship Kit Complete

Must Ship Kit Complete

By default, this check box is selected. This means that all the components of this kit will need to be shipped at one time and will need to match the quantity of the kit parent item. The sales order line will close only if all the parts have shipped at one time.

If you de-select this check box, the Epicor application will allow individual components of this kit to be shipped separately and will invoice them as individual sales order lines. The Price Type field on this sheet will therefore be automatically set to Component Pricing; you will not be able to change the setting.

Print Components on Pack Slip

By default, this check box is selected. This means that each kit component will be printed as a separate line on the packing slip, along with details of the sales order line item.

If you de-select this check box, kit components details will not print on the packing slip.

The Print Components parameter is dependent on the Must Ship Kit Complete parameter. If you selected the Must Ship Kit Complete check box, you can choose to select or de-select the Print Components on Packing Slip check box. If the Must Ship Kit Complete check box is clear, the Print Components on Packing Slip check box is automatically selected; you will not be able to de-select it.

Print Components on Customer Documents

By default, this check box is selected. This means that each kit component will be printed as a separate line on quotes, sales order acknowledgements, and invoices, along with details of the sales order line item.

If you de-select this check box, kit components details will not be printed on quotes, sales order acknowledgements, and invoices.

The Print Components parameter is dependent on the Must Ship Kit Complete parameter. If you selected the Must Ship Kit Complete check box, you can choose to select or de-select the Print Components on Customer Documents check box. If the Must Ship Kit Complete check box is clear, the Print Components on Customer Documents check box is automatically selected; you will not be able to de-select it.

Price Type

In this field select how the kit is priced. The Parent Pricing option is selected by default.

Component Pricing Selecting this option instructs the Epicor application to roll up the individual sales prices of each kit component to calculate the sales price for the kit. This option is automatically selected for a kit whose components can be shipped as individual line items (that is, the Must Ship Kit Complete check box is blank for the kit). You will not be able to change this setting.

Parent Pricing this option instructs the Epicor application to use the sales price of the kit parent item as the sales price of the kit.

Daily Sales Kit Processing

Sales Kitting Course

This section of the course reviews sales kit processing that takes place during a typical work day. These transactions include adding the components to the sales kit part, entering a sales quote, generating a sales order for the sales kit, and shipping the order.

Next, enter a quote and, if the quote is won, generate a sales order. The last process involves shipping the sales kit and analyzing the transactions to ensure accuracy of the shipment.

Add Sales Kit Components

Creating a sales kit involves several processes. First you must create a sales kit part as reviewed in the Application Setup, then use Engineering Workbench to add the related components.

Enter a Quote

In order to find out what kit components the customer may need when selling a sales kit, you must create a quote of the sales kit and components.

In creating the quote, the most recently approved sales kit method is used. Entering a quote identifies a sales kit and how that kit is to be sold.

Enter a Sales Order

Once the quote is determined and created, the sales kit can be sold to the customer. You create a sales order for the sales kit.

In creating the order, the most recently approved sales kit method is used. Entering an order identifies a sales kit and how that kit is to be sold and shipped to the customer.

Ship the Sales Kit

After you process the sales order, the sales kit is shipped to the customer.

Shipments are made from inventory or manufacturing work in progress (WIP) if there is a job linked to the sales order. In each case, the transaction is the same; however, the Epicor application treats the costs of sales differently for items shipped from WIP. In the case of the sales kit, the components that make up the kit can be a combination of manufactured or purchased parts, so components can be shipped from different areas to satisfy the sales kit order demand.

Analyze the Results

After the sales kit is shipped, transactions need to be reviewed and analyzed. Knowing how the kit component quantity is relieved is important to the inventory process. The kit components can be supplied by either a manufacturing job or from inventory.

This information is used to verify that the correct items were sold and shipped to the customer correctly.

Sales Kit Components

Daily Sales Kit Processing

After you create the sales kit part, you must add its components. To do this, you check out the sales kit part and in the Engineering Workbench add the relevant components. Edit the quantity of the components.

After entering quantity and editing other settings, you must approve and check in the revision. This also makes the sales kit available for future orders, quotes, and jobs.

Engineering Workbench

Use the Engineering Workbench to build and maintain the method of manufacture for a part. The method of manufacture for a part consists of its bill of material (BOM) and its routing. The BOM is a list of the component parts needed to produce the final part. The routing is a list of the operations and shop resources that are needed to produce the final part.

Each method of manufacture for a part is associated with a specific revision. You must enter a revision for a part before you can enter a BOM or routing information for that part. Once the revision has been entered for the part, you must check the revision out in order to work on it in the Engineering Workbench. You can check a revision out directly in the workbench, or you can pull the part revision up in Part Maintenance and check it out to an existing ECO Group from there.

Quote Entry

Daily Sales Kit Processing

Use Opportunity/Quote Entry to enter and maintain all leads, opportunities, or quotes in the Epicor application. This program is valuable when entering and tracking communications with a potential customer.

When entering a quote, the application indicates that a part is a sales kit. The most recently approved revision of the sales kit's method of manufacturing displays. Each of the kit components create a quote line and are associated with the originating parent line by the Display Seq.

For example, if Kit A, with two components - B and C, is entered as line one on the quote, Kit A would be line one, B would be line two, and C would be line three. The related display sequence numbers would be 1.000, 1.001, and 1.002, respectively.

Use the Lines > Kits Detail > Detail sheet to view details for parts that are components of a kit. The application downloads details of kit components into the Kits Detail sheet after a kit is selected.

Note In Part Maintenance, the displayed details can be edited only if the kit has been In Part Maintenance, the displayed details can be edited only if the kit has been set up to allow component updates

Custom Kits

Custom kits are kits whose components are changeable. If the kit has been set up as a custom kit, the fields on the Kits Detail sheet are activated, allowing the changes.

If the kit is configured as a standard kit in the Sales Kits sheet within Part Maintenance, but is set up to allow parameter changes, editing the kit configuration to allow component changes makes it a custom kit.

Do this by clicking the Sales Kit Params button, on the Line > Detail sheet. This button is activated only if the kit has been set up to allow parameter changes.

Standard Kits

If the kit selected has been set up as a standard kit, the fields on the Kits Detail sheet display the component details but it is disabled. No changes can be made to these details.

Sales Kit Params

When you click the Sales Kit Params button, the Epicor application displays the Kit Parameters window. Selecting the Allow Component Update check box allows component changes. Use this method to change pricing for the kit, which are also set in Part Maintenance.

The price of a kit can come from the sales price of the kit parent item, or from the sales prices of individual kit components that are rolled up to the price of the kit parent. For more information, refer to the Application Help topic: Quote Entry - Line - Detail.

Shipments can be made from inventory or manufacturing (WIP) if there is a job linked to the sales order. In each case, the transaction is the same; however, the application treats the costs of sales differently for items shipped from WIP. In the case of the sales kit, components that make up the kit can be a combination of manufactured and purchased parts, so it is possible that components are shipped from different areas to satisfy sales kit order demand.

Use the Sales Kit Component Issue sheet to ship components of a sales kit that are configured as follows:

Kit components must ship complete.

Kit components are not set for backflush.

This sheet does not display data for kits whose components do not need to ship complete. For kits whose components can be shipped separately, enter information on the Lines > Customer Shipment Entry > Detail sheet.

For kits that are set for backflush, this sheet displays data, but the fields are disabled to prevent changes.
