Functional Training End Game: The goal of the functional training is to take a deep dive into Production Execution functionality within QAD so attendees can understand all the relevant processes and transactions for both discrete Work Orders and Advanced Repetitive manufacturing and how they can be applied to different manufacturing environments. The training will touch on key process requirements that drive the discrete vs. repetitive decision and then how each is setup and transacted at the QAD program level. We will be reviewing transactions that impact inventory, labor, and exception processing such as scrap and rework. It is important to note that this training is focused purely on execution and will not address scheduling functionality such as that provided by MSW/PSW.  

Technical Training End Game: The goal of the technical training is to provide a broad overview of the functionality in the QAD eCommerce module so attendees can gain a better understanding of the benefits this module provides. The training will focus on how eCommerce can be used as an EDI tool across varying environments and industries. It is important to note that this training is designed to be a high-level insight into the module, providing knowledge of the inner workings and how it can benefit ones business. It is not intended to be a deep-dive or to develop subject matter expertise.
