Light Manufacturing

The Light Manufacturing application is designed to help you manage production, kit assembly or processing of components into a finished goods. This function-rich, flexible module operates in real time and offers robust functionality for light manufacturing. Make to order production orders can be created individually from Sales Order Entry, or a group of sales orders can be grouped into one Production Order. Make to Stock orders can also be entered via the purchase order entry module.

Real time production status reporting provides a view of the production line and alerts you to any priority jobs. When requesting the report, the sequence of the jobs may be organized by customer, item number, production order number, routing step or priority. To launch production, selections can be made for a specific customer, item, range by due date, route and production order number. Bar code scanner integration simplifies the process to document production sequence, reducing reduces clerical errors.

In this module design, we recognize the need to enable a simple kitting process, while also allowing for other process complexities. As our customers use various methods of organizing their assembly operations, we offer flexible features to support them.
