J.D. Edwards, at its Quest User Conference last week, rolled out an upgrade to its namesake Supply Chain Management software suite targeted to automate more of the business processes of its manufacturing and distributor customer base. Among dozens of feature enhancements is an updated Engineering Project Management module that aggregates information on products made to customer specifications in a way that J.D. Edwards officials said would maximize profits.
The Lot Control capabilities in J.D. Edwards SCM 5, due next quarter, offer multiple predefined and user-defined data fields that enable companies to manage lots with more granularity.
Other enhancements focus on pricing and promotions management, officials said.
