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.
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 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.
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
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.
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 employees 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.
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.
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.
