Shop paper enhancements for constructors

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


In the materials section of the shop order (bill of materials version, quotation calculation) we can specify for each material a quantity Materials per piece. But if we require a material with shape characteristics (like a sheet or a bar), it appears that we cannot longer specify how many Materials per piece but have to specify how many Pieces per sheet or Pieces per bar we need. But what if we want to specify both?

Material Requirements Planning (MRP) for Exact Online Manufacturing

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


The purpose of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) is the generation of time phased planned purchase orders and shop orders. In other words, we want to purchase in time, but like to avoid at the same time to consolidate multiple purchase requirements into inventories not yet needed. The formal manufacturing planning and control concept will be the core of Exact Online Manufacturing Premium. The first phase of MRP goes this month into controlled release.

Support for warehouse location management in manufacturing

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


In Exact Online Manufacturing Advanced edition we introduced warehouses with warehouse (bin-) locations. An item can be assigned to a single location, as is common practice in small warehouses. In more professional warehouses, available space is managed so that items are not on a fixed location and may be dispersed over multiple locations. Exact Online Manufacturing is starting with support for this use case.

Can you send me a quote or estimate for your services? Not every service quote is a 20-page proposal, with extensive details on how project work will be delivered. What if the majority of your service quotes is related to smaller (lower-value) jobs for a few days of work? Or if they relate to repeat or extra work orders? As a service provider you want to quickly build and communicate such quotes and estimates to your client without any hassles. We made some enhancements that will not only help you to save time, but also will help you to seamlessly manage the handover from sales to delivery and finance.
