As a Process Manufacturer, you must ensure that your customers’ needs are met 100% of the time. You need to accurately track past orders and inventory levels so that you can rest assured that you will always be able to fulfill and expedite orders as they are placed. You will develop a Bill of Material for each product being manufactured, including the materials, labor component where applicable and notes for tool and dies being used for set up and for quality control stages.
Process manufacturing is the branch of manufacturing that is associated with formulas and manufacturing recipes, and can be contrasted with Discrete Manufacturing which is concerned with discrete units, bills of materials and the assembly of components.
HOW CAN ONEIR SOLUTIONS HELP MY PROCESS MANUFACTURING COMPANY?
For Process Manufacturers, Bill of Materials is a necessity. Materials requirement planning is key to the success of your business. Throughout the manufacturing process, inventory committed and then automatically relieved as production is completed. Print work orders including a summary of parts required, ensuring that you have all parts required in stock at all times. Track your inventory efficiently so that you are never stuck without that one essential component! Print lists of items needed so that the purchasing of those items can be expedited and production is completed to the customer’s specifications.
Accepting, expediting and tracking orders are a breeze with Sales Order Taking. Track your customer’s account status, print picking and packing slips, invoices and shipping labels. Report on your customer’s past sales, allowing you cater to each with maximum efficiency.
Set-up customers with special pricing or discounts by customer type or for individual preferred customers. If you have sales representatives “on-the-road,” they can remotely verify inventory, customer status and even enter new customer information and place orders.
Then integrate these selling solutions with Inventory Control, Customer Relationship Planning, and Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable and General Ledger for Financial Control and your business safeguards. Combine the benefits of the Purchase Ordering option for Materials Requirements Planning, Bank (Debit and Credit) Card Authorization and Payroll, and you have one powerful fully integrated software solution…and there is much more.
