From the JD Edwards World design perspective, whatever you call it on the shop floor, is not necessarily the way it has been named in the software. When reporting a symptom in your Service Request, the product you choose will always be Shop Floor Management, but the program name will depend on the release that you are using. You will see that, for example in A7.3, it is called Rate Base Manufacturing but with release A8.1 and above, it is called Repetitive Manufacturing. The menus across releases are the same, i.e. G3115, G3116, G3141, but the options for the programs are not always named alike. These differences are due to changes in the A8.1 release, when changes were made in the manufacturing accounting program along with some enhancements , added program, and removed programs .

 

Here's a review of differences in menus, per release:
