Manufacturers, who build custom modifications of standard products, or custom job shops, will appreciate the capabilities of the Advanced Production module.
Manufacturing Orders add critical functionality for any manufacturer that builds one-offs or variations of standard products, including custom job shops. Manufacturing Orders serve to document all the components required to build a sub-assembly or finished good.
The Advanced Production module provides the following capabilities:
- Declare provisional items that may not be completely defined, or are unknown at the time.
- Create Manufacturing Orders either from a standard bill of materials, or from scratch without any previously defined components.
- Create and print cost estimates based of the unit cost of known components and the estimated cost of provisional items.
- Compare projected manufacturing cost with the actual manufacturing cost for accurate analyses of productivity and profitability.
