AutoCOR is a collaborative order requirement solution between AIM supply chain management applications an Epicor ERP for automotive production part suppliers.  It helps suppliers comply with OEM and Tier 1 & 2 obligations for EDI, shipping, bar code labeling including IATF 16949:2016 requirements.

AutoCOR utilizes AIM EDI and Orders applications to manage inbound EDI and kanban data.  This data is published via a data gateway to the Epicor Demand Management module.  Epicor applications are used to perform MRP, Purchasing and Production.  Once product is ready to ship the AIM Bar Code and Shipping apps are used to print OEM and other customer specific bar code labels, scan labels to create shipping paperwork and create and transmit the outbound EDI requirements specific to each trading partner.  This in turn updates the Epicor Inventory and Sales Order with quantities shipped / invoiced.  Epicor is then used for all Financial Management processing.  AutoCOR is available as an embedded function of Epicor ERP v9 or Epicor ERP v10.1.
