Integrating your manufacturing process with all other areas of your business.
Manufacturers must respond to demanding schedules while constantly seeking ways to lower costs, better manage inventory, and streamline their processes. Add a continual need for innovative products, forecasting challenges, the battle between supply and demand, and the result is escalating complexity in all areas of the business. If your focus is make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order, project-centric, job shop, batch, or repetitive manufacturing then you need a complete end-to-end system to manage your business.
A fully integrated Manufacturing management solution will include most of or all of the following:
Bill of Material and Routing
Effectively plan and manage costs, inventories, the manufacturing processes, and maintain full revision control. See both engineering and financial views of product structure in the multi-level Bill of Materials software (BOM)/Routing.
Schedule productions on the shop floor and track material and labor costs. Compare standard and planned production costs to the actual costs of the production order.
Have real-time access to on-hand inventory, inventory in transit, reorder levels, and costs. Ability to manage multiple warehouses, lots, inventory sub-items, expiration dates, and bin locations.
Warehouse Management System
Efficiently manage distribution processes with advanced warehouse operations in receiving, inventory management and order fulfillment. Using barcode scanners and mobile devices warehouse workers can perform all necessary tasks quickly and accurately.
Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
Satisfy customer requirements and at the same time maintain inventory with a robust tool for MRP planning.
For use on quotes, sales orders, and/or production orders with real-time price and cost roll-up. A multi-level, dimensional, rules-based system with non-hierarchical feature selections and configuration evaluation.
Generate manufacturing estimates for new and/or existing items and convert into bills of material, production orders, or additional estimates.
Advanced Planning & Scheduling
Meet changing customer demands by setting accurate and reliable delivery dates based on the availability of resources.
The integrated approach will include advanced financials, distribution management, customer management, business dashboards, and when needed, project accounting. All of the business functions will work seamlessly together, not individually or apart.
