Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Showing floor stock materials in Smart Shop Floor

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

SSFMATSETTING-000

The whole point of tracking actual consumption of materials on the shop floor is inventory accuracy and better product costing. There is a category of materials that do not require inventory tracking, and that category includes floor stock (those materials that are stocked on the floor), and components manufactured by suborders reside on the floor too. For that reason, Smart Shop Floor logistics excluded floor stock on the issue screen. We have now added an option to show those items too.

BARCODES-000

Barcodes are machine-readable representations of data. They are nowadays stuck to virtually every product and with the help of an appropriate device they disclose a price, eligibility for warranty, shipping destination or flight number. Until recent, Exact Online would support only for a few fields on a few layouts to print a barcode. We have now developed the ability to print barcodes for any field on any layout.

BACKGROUND000

Manufacturers often work in big datasets: many products ordered that are built with many shop orders requiring many materials to be purchased. When we generate shop orders for a few hundred products, or purchase a few thousand line items into hundred purchase orders we do have to wait a long time (preventing us from working on other screens), and we even may experience a gateway timeout. We have identified processes that are slow, and we are solving the issues by introducing background processes.

Smart Shop Floor is the app for tablets, smartphones or large touchscreens to view shop orders and track time for shop floor operators.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Introducing the shop order material issue slip

BATCHASSIGN-000

There are several layouts that list shop order materials, such as the shop paper, the manufacturing picking list and the manufacturing cluster picking list. None of these are suited to direct the warehouse staff to pick specific serial- or batch numbers. We are now introducing the shop order material issue slip to help you precisely with that objective: pick the right batch.

PICKLIST-EN-000

We can collect shop order materials in the warehouse using Smart Shop Floor Material Management. But we also support the good old printing of a picking list, a concept that we are already familiar with in the sales order delivery process. We have recently released the manufacturing picking list and the manufacturing cluster picking list.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Introducing a right to edit serial/batch numbers

EDITRIGHTS-000

In Exact for Manufacturing and Exact for Wholesale Distribution Advanced and Premium editions we can work with serial and batch numbers to support traceability and compliance to industry regulations. A new right makes it possible to assign rights to those employees that are allowed to correct erroneous serial and batch numbers.

LAYOUTS-000

The person doing work preparation for the shop floor did have limited tools at hand to instruct the warehouse. The shop paper can be used for this purpose, but well known flaws are that all materials used are listed indiscriminately (order and stock controlled, subassemblies, backflushed), lines are not ordered by pick location, combined picking for multiple shop orders is not an option, and support for serial- and batch numbers is not provided. We are about to add three new layouts to reduce efforts for work preparation.
