Exact for Manufacturing Innovation: Smart Shop Floor material management for Premium

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

SSF-MAT-PREM-000

In November 2016 we started with the controlled release of Smart Shop Floor material management. We have been supporting the Basic and Advanced editions of Exact for Manufacturing: without (Basic) and with (Advanced) serial/batch numbers. For the Premium edition we also had to support flexible use of storage locations. We are now bringing this part in controlled release.

Flexible use of storage locations

In the Premium edition of Exact for Manufacturing we can store the same item on multiple storage locations. We have introduced this feature in 2016. See: Support for warehouse location management in manufacturing.

 

Smart Shop Floor material management

In November 2016 we started the controlled release of Smart Shop Floor material management. See: Working with Smart Shop Floor material management, and: Setting up a user for Smart Shop Floor material management. We did not fully support the flexible use of storage locations within Smart Shop Floor.

 

Issuing material to the shop floor

For the materials to issue we show the default location and the quantity at hand on that location:

By clicking on Change, the side panel will open and show the alternative locations. By default, only the locations with stock are shown:

By unchecking Only show in stock we will also see locations without stock that are in use for this item. We cannot add a new storage location from the Smart Shop Floor app:

SSF-MAT-PREM-003

By clicking on the picture of the material, a side panel will open with item details. These details include the storage locations with stock:

Finishing orders from the shop floor (‘receiving product’)

We can change the receiving location by clicking on Change, just like with issuing. When the item to be received is a serial or batch item, the side panel that opens upon clicking Serial or Batch shows also a Change link:

By clicking on Change we will be presented with all locations in use for this item. We cannot add a new storage location from the Smart Shop Floor app:

SSF-MAT-PREM-006

With the Recent button on the right side of the Finish screen we can view all serial and batch numbers received on the respective locations:
