The time entry screen shows a column named quantity. Also in Smart Shop Floor, on the stop screen, we can enter this quantity. We should remember that we are entering a throughput on a particular operation and not a quantity of finished parts. Only when we track the throughput on the last operation in a routing we will call it the proposed quantity (to finish). An enhancements to the finish screen makes it easier to work with this proposed quantity.
Since the last localization update, we have not been idle. In this blog post we will show you what is changed and what is still to come in the near future. In addition, one subject will be highlighted, but we start with a look back on the latest localization update on this support blog.
The bill of materials (BOM) is often designed by the engineering discipline, but it is used by planners, calculators and cost accountants. The BOM provides insight in quantities of materials required and in the material unit cost, but insight in the material cost per batch quantity was not available. We have now added a column with the material cost per batch.
You may have noticed in recent days some small changes in the Exact for Manufacturing shop floor planning screen. We have for example removed the Gantt chart from the main page, and moved it behind a button called Chart. These are changes leading up to some important enhancements to the shop floor planning that will be released in the coming weeks.
Wholesale Distributors that normally always (should) have certain products on stock to fulfill the needs of their customers instantly, sometimes find ways to deal with out-of-stock exceptions by having their supplier to drop ship these goods. This might cost some more money but in the end they will save a good customer relationship.
Not a delayed April fool’s day joke. Some work centers are simply able to produce multiple products at a time. Some tire curing press machines or injection molding machines can produce one, two or three products in one cycle. In the routing they are respectively set as 100%, 200% and 300% efficient. We were unaware that in the textiles and garments industries machines are sometimes capable of doing 16 t-shirts or 20 socks at a time. We lifted therefore existing restrictions in Exact for Manufacturing.
Especially Wholesale Distributors and Manufacturers have assortments that easily reach over many thousands of items. With international business growing customers and suppliers in B2B and B2C expect localized layouts, websites, webshops and portals. It is a must offer them clear and translated product information.
A common objective of cost accountants is to compare manufacturing cost and variances in material and time consumption. Most can be learned from comparing trends by assortment: are we getting better in estimating assembly cost for wheelbarrows, and how does it compare with the trend for pallet trucks? With the new assortment filters in the cost overview we can slice and dice the shop order results.
