Epicor Advanced MES is a critical part of any Smart Factory. Manufacturers use Advanced MES to improve quality, reduce scrap, help ensure on-time delivery, and boost production throughput. It’s all about improving production execution and performance efficiency to gain a competitive advantage. How do you make more without more assets? Use Advanced MES to uncover and eliminate downtime, make more parts, or cut costs. MES can improve profitability by helping you find more capacity.

Epicor Advanced MES collects data directly from equipment and operators on the shop floor in real-time, minimizing inaccurate and time-consuming manual data collection. With information instantly in your hands, you can anticipate and solve production problems before they happen. Real-time insight helps you pinpoint critical issues, reduce waste, and improve quality and customer service. Everyone in the plant and throughout the business can then take action to improve manufacturing performance.

The latest release of Advanced MES, 8.3.3, introduces several new features.

The goal of this guide is to provide an understanding of system requirements and a practical approach to sizing and configuring your Advanced MES Server to obtain the best performance possible from your Epicor software. It will also help you plan for the future growth of your system. The key to success in getting your hardware sized correctly is to define your application load correctly and then match it with the appropriate hardware resources. Choosing a hardware architecture that can grow as your business and/or application load grows is also important.

It is difficult to accurately provide a hardware recommendation that matches your unique application usage pattern. Many customers find this guide very useful and accurate after they have followed all the steps described in the sections. There are some cases where the provided recommendations may not fully work out in your unique situation. It is therefore difficult to guarantee or imply that the hardware purchased using this hardware sizing guide will solve your unique business requirements. To improve the odds of success, we highly recommend that you work with Encompass consultants and implement their hardware sizing recommendations.
