Bill of Materials

The AddonSoftware Bill of Materials application is a flexible, easy-to-use system designed for companies that assemble finished goods and manufacture some or all of the components. It provides unlimited levels of material usage and has features that easily define and track material, labor, subcontract, and overhead costs. Manufacturing cost accuracy is one of the system’s primary strengths. Built-in flexibility allows you to define your materials in any unit of measure, and adjust factors for scrap and yield making accurate material requirements.

Routings, with labor operations and subcontract steps, may be defined for each BOM. You may include manufacturing instructions for materials, labor operations, and subcontract steps in detail on convenient message lines. Messages for materials are printed on pick lists, operation instructions are printed on the Work Order Traveler (in the Shop Floor Control application), and subcontract messages can be used for either internal or external communications (POs).

Engineering change orders may be entered in advance of the change with effective dates to place them into effect. Full change order history is available through the use of a production date, and you’ll be able to generate complete reports showing only the current requirements or a full history of all change orders. Effective and obsolete dates are available for materials, labor operations, subcontract steps, and even instruction (message) lines.

Roll up costs on demand, either globally or selectively. Environments without work orders can quickly backflush components after manufacturing for single-step inventory updating.

  • Easy bill creation and copy function
  • Phantom bills for common groups of items
  • Scrap factor and yield percents for accurate material tracking
  • User-defined Operation Codes for routings and scheduling
  • Setup, Run, Queue, and Move times for tighter scheduling
  • Where-used reports for materials, operations, and subcontractors
  • Global component replacement program
  • Fast production entry and backflushing
  • Component Availability Inquiry for determining Available to Promise

Shop Floor Control

The shop Floor control module uses work orders to collect, store, track, and report the costs of material, labor, overhead, and outside purchases relating to the manufacture of an item or batch of items. The module is fully integrated and information automatically flows into other application modules including Bill of Materials, Inventory Control, and Purchase and Sales Order Processing. Work order history is preserved indefinitely by manufactured part number and transaction.

Automatically or manually schedule each work order, either forward from its start date or backward from the completion date. Use the MRP system to automatically generate planned work orders for more efficient manufacturing. You can plan work center activity with the Load Balance display and the Dispatch Display or Inquiry.

Shop Floor Calendars for each work center are provided to assist in planning and scheduling. The calendar sets the available hours for each center, with holidays and days off defined, making it easier for you to maintain schedules.

Get control of work in process through complete tracking of work orders as they move through the shop floor. Stock and Non-Stock type work orders allow the manufacture of repetitive items and “same as except for” jobs. Custom work orders may be easily defined by duplicating a work order “template,“ a work order from history, or by modifying an existing similar bill of materials. Start with a Work Order Quote to help determine your expected manufacturing costs, and convert to a Planned or Released Work Order with a single keystroke.

Use work order history to compare your standard costs and lead times to actuals. Report variances by Work Order, operation, materials, labor, and subcontract steps from the system’s extensive cost accounting procedures. And you can use the Labor Cost Analysis Report to monitor efficiency and utilization factors.

  • Track planned and quoted work orders
  • Tie Work Order to Sales Order line item for accurate tracking and posting of cost to sales invoice
  • Extensive variance tracking and reporting
  • Automatic purchase order generation for subcontracted steps
  • Shop floor dispatch report
  • On-line inquiry of ”on order“ status for open work orders
  • Lots or serial numbers can be issued or created with complete audit trails
  • On-line work order information is always available for you to review the current status of each operation or job
  • Automatically generate purchase orders for subcontracted services
