Improve Efficiencies and Reduce Errors

Tight integration of ShopWorX modules means information only has to be entered once. Data flows from point of entry to all relevant modules.


The Shop Order modules consist of Shop Orders, Scheduling, and Time Reporting. These modules give you the means to effectively plan and control shop floor activity.

Extremely flexible, the system can adapt to your style of manufacturing. Shop orders can contain all necessary manufacturing data for companies that engineer to order and build for stock. Shop orders can be cross-referenced to customer orders to provide customer service status information in a make-to-order environment. Multiple shop orders can be linked together into a project. The project can be scheduled, and tracked in summary or detail.


Shop Orders
Shop Orders can take several different forms based on your type of manufacturing. For example, Engineer to order, make to order, and job shops can cross-reference shop orders to the customer order line item(s) that created the demand for the product. For make-to-stock manufacturing, shop orders can be issued for stock based on Material Requirements Planning orders.

Using Express Shop Order Entry, the item number, quantity, and date required are all that is necessary to launch a stock order. In all cases, multiple orders can be linked together to create a project, which can then be planned, scheduled, and tracked by project or by individual shop order.

The information required to manufacture an item can come from several sources. Quotes, process sheets, and bills of material can be copied into a shop order and then maintained there, or the information can be defined directly within the shop order on a one-time basis.

Time Reporting
Labor can be reported through standard Time Card Entry or through the optional Labor Data Collection module. All labor, whether direct or indirect, can be reported to track an employee’s entire days activity. With built-in reasonableness checking, accurate labor information is updated to the shop order, shop order costing, employee history, work center history, scheduling, payroll, and general ledger.

Daily labor efficiencies are available, as is a summary of historical efficiency and utilization information by employee and work center.

If the payroll module is in use, labor data can be summarized by pay period and posted to the payroll system.

Progress Reporting
After products are completed, and all costs are posted, that information is reported to the system through the progress reporting module. If a sub-assembly order is linked to an upper-level manufacturing order, reporting of progress automatically transfers cost of the sub-assembly to the parent shop order. When orders are completed and closed, you have the option of saving those orders in detail for historical reporting.
