Epicor and Vantage can handle the small jobs no problem.
You set up the Parent Job with a BOM of the child partsâ€¦.
Then when MRP runs it will create all the jobs for the child parts and for the part part.
The child job can be built directly to the parent job, however, this becomes very tedious to manage, I would recommend build to stockâ€¦ then when a child job
is completed it is moved to stores, then issued to the parent job.
Very easy to manage, Epicor will do all the heavy liftingâ€¦ create all the jobsâ€¦ and give you suggestions as to whether expedite or postpone released jobs.
We have 7 level assembliesâ€¦ meaning level 7 goes into 6â€¦ 6 into 5â€¦ 5 into 4â€¦ and so on until the top level, and Epicor manages every job perfectly.
If you donâ€™t use MRP, then you would have to use the timephase reports to see where you have to expedite or postpone jobs.

Subject: [Vantage] RE: One large job or multiple small jobs - Vantage 8.03
I am not sure about vantage but I know in E9 you can create demand links of make to job. I'm not sure if this removes all parts and materials that were originally on the job to the child job or not, but that should be pretty easy to figure out with testing.
I'm kind of in a similar situation. We have a very large job with multiple large sub assemblies that i would like to break out from that job. This isn't really possible if the job
was created from a sales order, which most of ours are. So if you figure something out please post your solution.

We are trying to determine if it's feasible to create more small jobs that can be closed sooner versus putting everything under one large job that can sometimes stay open for months at our facility. Can a "child-job"
reference a "parent-job". Can Vantage work this way? If so, what are the downsides? Would we lose any traceability this way? Is there any documentation that outlines how this works that any of you know of that you could share with us.
If we use jobs as sub-sets of jobs (a master job = sales order line item with separate sub-jobs for: tooling, stamping, machining, welding) doesnâ€™t the labor / material stay separated on the
sub jobs or is it all rolled together when attached to the master job?
