We have been on vantage since 2006 & upgraded to E10 in 2016. When we first implemented this system we had a company with two plants, and our Epicor consultant advised against setting up two different plants within that company code. Each plant had different processes so we were able to identify these using department codes to create separate financials for each plant and perform various analyses. Fast forward to 2018, and we are retooling the second plant and it will have the same process as plant one so department codes will now be the same. However, we still want the ability to run financials by each plant. Another detail is that we actually have 4 different production companies running out of E10 and use the same chart numbers and department codes across the entire corporation, and we want to maintain that consistency for our various processes.
I am looking for creative ways to be able to run financials by plant for this one company. I appreciate any suggestions.
