Material/Production Management

Axis ERP software reaches all the way to the mill/factory floor. It includes extensive support for both planning and execution, including:

  • Requirements planning
  • Production scheduling
  • Procurement
  • Material control
  • Shop floor control
  • Quality management
  • Shipment planning

Key Features:

Unified Product & Process Definition reflects the way products are really made and reduces the effort required to describe and maintain them. It provides an integrated definition of the production process, primary and alternate materials, quality specifications, and attributes/characteristics.

Attribute-Based Product Identification allows materials and products to be described, ordered, located, reserved, applied, and managed in an efficient and consistent manner without a proliferation or duplication of item numbers.

Axis ERP Dynamic Order Fulfillment eliminates the need to maintain unique product masters, process routings, pricing information, and descriptions for every possible product or processing variation. By automating much of the quoting, entry, production planning, and documentation of orders, Axis ERP helps metals companies dramatically reduce time, effort, cost, and errors across a number of key business processes.

Attribute-Based Scheduling increases throughput by minimizing set-up time and scrap. Automatic job/lineup scheduling based on product characteristics optimizes capacity utilization and saves planner time.

Quality Tracking and Control ensures that products are produced according to customer specifications while also reducing effort. It maintains complete product genealogy and process history, including chemical/physical lot properties and in-process test results.

Inventory Control by Lot & Tag # enables better utilization of inventory by providing full visibility of finished goods, WIP and raw material in terms of specific product dimensions, variable units of measure, and container (e.g., reel, coil, bundle, etc.); as well as other attributes and characteristics.

Load Planning and Shipping helps accelerate the shipment process, optimize loads, and reduce shipping errors. It streamlines the entire process by providing the tools to stage partial, full, and multi-drop truck loads, schedule shipping and receiving carriers by bay/dock and time, and print all shipping documents on demand.
