Bill of Materials (BOM)

Build what you need, when you need it

  • Define and manage simple or configurable builds for single or multiple finished goods
  • Use sub-assemblies to establish a defined order of operations, including production-stage dependencies, for work-in-process and finished goods
  • Create unique BOMs for a single part, providing flexible workflows to produce finished goods
Time Tracking and Labor Costing

Ensure your resources, from people to parts, are allocated appropriately for measurable success

  • Manage employee schedules and shifts based on real-time availability against your hours of operation
  • Assign resources to your production schedule and accurately track work-order timelines
  • Capture labor costs and associate time spent at each production stage to calculate the labor expense for every work order completed

Material Resource Planning

Know when and where parts are needed, and track progress every step of the way

  • Speed up the process of producing and delivering products by optimizing inventory levels and keeping them in balance
  • Automate your MRP needs with historical data, daily consumption rates, forecast percentages, safety stock, and optimal days of stock
Manufacturing and Work Order

Connect your inventory management and sales functions to your manufacturing process with work-order customizations

  • Organize your orders to allow for items to be manufactured, disassembled, and repaired
  • Auto-generate manufacture orders from sales-order demand and inventory levels for build-to-stock or build-to-order workflows
  • Build step-by-step instructions with URLs, images, and attachments to quickly inform your production team of important details and requirements
