  • Define single & multi-level Bills of Material including alternative raw materials
  • Define, manage and schedule Factory Calendars for single and multiple shifts for single or multiple factories
  • Define capacities, overheads and other parameters for individual machines and linked machine lines and create work centers
  • Plan production routing to bring BOM and Work Centers together. Plan multiple routes to ensure maximum efficiencies are obtained through the available infrastructure
  • Track all resources and consumables required and issued during the manufacturing process and ensure that the consumptions are within stipulated parameters

Production Scheduling

Efficient schedule management of the production infrastructure ensures that you deploy production resources based on orders, priority and materials available in stock thereby ensuring maximum productivity and enhancing customer satisfaction through timely delivery.

  • Schedule single orders, combined multiple orders, and forecasted sales orders

Vertical Based Production

Focus 8 comes fully equipped with a versatile vertical-based production planning module. Depending upon the type of production style, Focus 8 allows you to define virtually unlimited combinations of production processes ranging from Formula based BOMs, to assembly, back flushing and job production.

  • Process Production: Define fixed formulae for various BOMs to produce finished goods (e.g Chemicals, Paints, Dyes, etc.)
  • Back Flushing: Work backwards to identify raw material consumption based on finished good selection. (e.g. ingredients for finished dishes consumed from stock, etc.)
  • Assembly Production: Manage multiple routes for sub-assemblies and finished assemblies
  • Job Production: Create user-defined BOMs for specific or generic jobs, and ensure that issued stocks are specific to the job output

Production Material Handling

Focus 8 ensures that you have a complete and comprehensive grip on the handling of materials through the production cycle.

  • Transfer stock to and from stores and the production floor
  • Monitor, collate and ensure that the quantities of issued stock from stores, items return to stores and finished goods from shop floor production add up accurately
  • Control wastage, variances, and threshold management of raw material issues and obtain real-time production status
  • Monitor final product cost based on the costing module of production and variances as defined in the Work Center


  • Maintain optimum utilization of manufacturing resources and deliver maximum output
  • Improve overall productivity and efficiency, and as a consequence, reduce production cost
