Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Item extra fields for the shop paper

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

EXTRAV-000

End of 2017 we introduced the possibility to add user defined fields to the items. We made these fields available in the layouts for logistics processes (purchase order, quotation, sales order, delivery note and invoice), both in Exact for Wholesale Distribution and Exact for Manufacturing. From today, these extra fields are also available for the shop paper.

PROJECTLAYOUT-000

With the built-in project functionality of Exact for Manufacturing we can define projects and link quotations, sales orders, purchase orders, shop orders and invoices to a project. This is a great benefit to manufacturers supplying a mix of services and products to a common objective. We have extended our project functionality to layouts so that we can communicate about the project to supply chain partners.

QUANTITIESPR-000

Reporting the quantities produced in a certain period is a need in many companies. The Status overview | Shop orders does show a quantity produced, but this is a quantity throughout all time. A new filter option in this screen allows to show only the quantity produced in a user-selected period, and furthermore we can select lines with a produced quantity only.

INDENTCOST-000

On the bill-of-materials version we find a breakdown of the manufacturing cost into material, inside routing and outside routing (subcontracted work). However, when the material includes subassemblies, routing costs to manufacture those subassemblies have been absorbed into the item cost. An upcoming enhancement to the intended bill of materials overview provides insight into the real breakdown of manufacturing cost for items with a multi-level bill of materials.

BATCHSIZE-000

Producing efficiently often means filling the vessel with a fixed quantity, or manufacturing a series of a fixed quantity. This way we are making optimal use of our manufacturing resources so that our unit price remains low. We have adjusted the screen demand planning with an option to generate shop orders based on this optimal batch quantity.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Warehouse transfer advice to inventory holding subcontractors

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

TRANSFER-000

In 2016 we released functionality to transfer inventory from our main warehouse to the warehouse of the subcontractor or to the distribution center. This transfer advice was designed to transfer the quantity of the planned shortage on that warehouse, i.e. not one pallet extra. The modern supply chain increasingly involves partners that work with consignments of our inventory. A recent enhancement supports transfer advice to inventory holding subcontractors.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Quotation line copy of BOM, shop order or quotation line

QUOTCOPY-000

It is possible in the quotation calculation to copy an existing bill of materials to a new quotation line. This comes handy when we want to quote on a modification of a standard product, or if we use a BOM as a quotation line template. We have now made it possible to copy an existing shop order and an existing quotation line. The latter is useful if we want to calculate with a different material price for a larger price break.

Exact for Manufacturing and Wholesale Distribution Ease of Use: Introducing the Stock controlled icon

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

STOCKCONTROLLED-000

Exact facilitates different processes for different replenishment methods. Some items we want to manage by policy (“purchase or make when under reorder point”), and other items are only bought or made when a specific demand is triggering the transaction. We are introducing a new icon on the item card to show that an item is stock controlled (managed by policy).
