Epicor MES Customization for Terminal Auto Logout
A North-east Ohio manufacturing company implementing Epicor 9.05.700 wanted an ‘auto-logout’ feature added to Epicor's manufacturing execution system (MES) so that if an employee left themselves logged in and walked away from the terminal, after 60 seconds it would log them out. Even though this sounds simple enough it was actually a bit more complex than was expected.
Questions like, “how do you know if the computer is not in use” and “what do we do if there were open forms” really added to the complexity of the solution.
