FactoryASP and Factory Enterprise are full-featured systems, that can be run over the web, or in-house. They lend themselves very well to multiple locations. The software has an unusually small implementation-time and cost. All of these modules are included standard.

Accounts Payable

Accounts Receivable

Bill of Materials

Bill of Materials are standard in FactoryASP

  • Multilevel
  • Infinite Level and Depth
  • Supports Operations
  • Allows Large Descriptions
  • Flexible/Custom Units of Measure
  • Make to Stock or Make to Order Sub-assemblies
  • Provides Estimated Costing Reports
  • Supports Custom Inspections Criteria on Item or Operation

Editing BOMs is easy. When you adjust a component, all of its sub-components are automatically adjusted with it. You can also copy bills of material from one part to another. This is very useful when you make multiple similar parts. (In addition to copying the bill of material, Factory Edge can copy the operations and item categories as well).

The bill of material includes fields besides just components and quantities. You can add notes (such as locations), and you can even link components to manufacturing operations. For example, you can say that a bicycle has two wheels. But you can also tell Factory Edge that the wheels are used at the assemble operation.

When you create work orders, Factory Edge creates the requirements for all levels in the bill of material. You can even edit the bill of material for an individual work order, without affecting the master bill of material.

Other reports include the “Where Used“ list, and the “Bill of Manufacture”. A bill of manufacture shows components and operations, including individual and rolled-up costs. It is a powerful tool for quoting.

Inventory Control is a Standard Feature in FactoryASP

Inventory Control is the heart of FactoryASP. A simple to use, reporting system alerts the user to possible stock problems regarding:

  • Sales Orders
  • Shipping Dates
  • Purchase Orders
  • Possible Future Stock Problems

You can run the Inventory Problems report at any time. This report not only shows which items are below minimum stock levels, but also which items may have problems in the future! You can then zoom-in to see all planned activity for each particular item. Future inventory transactions include:

  • Open POs: These are items on open purchase orders that have not yet been received.
  • Open Sales Orders: These are items on open sales orders that have not yet been shipped.
  • Quantity to Make: These are items on open work orders that have not yet been made.
  • Quantity Allocated: These are components of items on open work orders that have not yet been converted/used.

If you are trying to decide whether you have enough materials to make an assembly, you can run an Inventory Components report. It shows the components of a particular item, including how many of the item can be made with existing component inventory.

Other reports are available, including Inventory Status, Inventory History and Inventory Future.

Inventory values can be calculated as part of Accounting in Factory Edge.

Job Cost

Job Costing is a Standard Feature in FactoryASP

Factory Edge automatically calculates job costs associated with work orders. For work orders that are linked to sales orders, sales order and profitability information are also provided. Many of the column labels on the job cost list are “hot labels” that link to pages containing supporting data. Like almost all data in Factory Edge, job costs can be filtered and sorted by almost any criteria, and can be copied into Excel for further manipulation.

Job Cost data includes production times (employee rates and/or work center rates), purchases (materials, services, outside operations), and materials used.

Shop Floor/ Job Tracking

Production in Factory Edge revolves around Work Orders. Work Orders are generally based on Sales Orders (for job shops and make-to-order situations) or Inventory Status (for make-to-stock situations).

Factory Edge includes detailed travelers (routers), including separate travelers for sub-assemblies. Production and work instruction information can also be retrieved electronically.

Special notes can be added. Adjustments can be made to work order bills of material and to work order operations.

There are a variety of ways to enter production status, production times, and payroll times. It can be handled “live” by logging in and out, or after the fact from timecards. Detailed production information can be entered, or just quantities made.

Bar-coding is an option in Factory Edge. The travelers contain bar codes, and we can configure log pages to automate data entry per your requirements.
