Operation Issues

Singapore Epson Industrial Pte Ltd (Epson) does not have a central control over the many batch jobs that are being executed on the different platforms. Most of the jobs, including AS400 native jobs and Windows jobs were done separately. Too much attention was being focus on it and modification of workflows was a tedious process.


JP1 Automatic Job Scheduling / AS400 Linkage
Epson selects JP1 AS400 linkage to integrate jobs across AS400 and other server platform.

Epson awarded the first JP1 AS400 linkage project worldwide to Hitachi Asia Ltd. The project will enhance the operation effectiveness and efficiencies by integrating jobs across different platforms (AS400 and Window NT). With a friendly and easy to use GUI, job scheduling and configuration effort also improved.

Epson will also gain benefits in automation and recovery function that is part of JP1 Job Management module. Productivity improvement and cost reduction will deliver higher level of competitiveness to Epson.
