Manufacturing Management

Plan, execute and control production more effectively with SYSPRO ERP

Manufacturing management software to support the smart factory

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) manufacturing software in the 21st century requires agility, flexiblity and responsiveness to both customer demand and volatile market conditions. It’s clear that technology is transforming the industry, with “smart factories” often discussed as Industry 4.0. In this new world, smart systems communicate with each other via Internet services, machines perform more tasks, and predictive analytics tools reveal opportunities you might otherwise miss.

If your business software doesn’t provide the transparency you need to manage holistically across the organization and take advantage of Web-based and other technology innovations like these, it’s time to consider a change.

SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) manufacturing software should enable you to view and control events throughout your entire business process chain – from suppliers to the production processes to delivery and customer service. To maximize efficiency and speed, your management software should further connect and share data with other systems in your production environment.

Key Benefits of Manufacturing Management Software

Whether your business makes goods in batch, to order or to stock, or uses discrete or process methods, SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) management software enables you to control, integrate and synchronize all aspects of the manufacturing process.

Accommodating both short and long production runs, SYSPRO provides a full set of tools to help you plan, record, track and control your output, with full visibility throughout your manufacturing supply chain.

SYSPRO ERP helps you keep your finished goods inventory to an absolute minimum. With greater visibility you can make smarter decisions about what to manufacture, with what resources, when, where and in what sequence.

Ensure the integrity of cost and profit calculation for bid processes with SYSPRO ERP. On confirmation of a quote, you can automatically raise all supply actions related to fulfilling the customer order. In addition, SYSPRO’s Product Configurator facilitates seamless rules-based order processing for assemble, configure and make-to-order products.

Learn how SYSPRO ERP enables you to define simple single-level bills through to complex formulations with multiple units of measure and relationship definitions.

SYSPRO ERP enables you to ensure accurate calculation of lead times and dynamic elapsed times, and assists in the optimization of production order quantities. The Engineering Change Control (ECC) module facilitates the efficient management of changes to product versions.

SYSPRO’s Manufacturing Operations Management solution provides complete manufacturing lifecycle management from planning, scheduling, publishing, collecting, tracking and analyzing to optimize and improve end-to-end manufacturing operations. Together with SYSPRO’s ERP this solution offers a unique level of delivery, cost and quality control of manufacturing operations for job shop, batch production, production line and mixed mode environments.

With SYSPRO ERP, material and labor consumed in production may be back flushed or, for longer production runs, issued as consumed to work in progress. Work-in-progress inspection functionality enables a product to be receipted against multiple items if grades of the final product vary.

SYSPRO ERP tracks actual versus estimated labor hours, and facilitates material usage and scrap.

SYSPRO’s integration framework enables version-independent integration to CAD and shop-floor data collection systems. This eliminates the need for double data entry and reduces potential for error.

Capture, track and analyze job and product costs and profitability in real-time with SYSPRO ERP. The software shows you expected versus actual costs for material and scrap, as well as internal and external labor, fixed and overhead costs per job, or group of jobs. R&D job data is easily extracted for regulatory reporting requirements.

SYSPRO enables you to simulate and model the different costs involved in changing material, labor and manufacturing routes, so you can make smart decisions. Evaluate job costs, assess margins and determine pricing with full visibility to product cost details and profit margins, including for co- and by-products.

Key SYSPRO ERP solutions for optimized manufacturing management

Inventory Management gives you more control over your inventory by providing greater accuracy and visibility to inventory information throughout the organization. It forms the core of the manufacturing, distribution and accounting facilities and is designed to integrate with all the major functions of the systems and to provide flexible reporting on inventory holdings.
Bill of Materials (BOM) is designed to provide your organization with complete control over the product structure by ensuring that engineering, production, purchasing and order processing are utilizing the same information. BOM is defined by the manufacturing process and includes: work centers, labor, tools, dies, inserts, fixtures, raw materials, packaging, scrap rates, setup times, yields and equipment.
Work in Progress module is the cornerstone of the system’s Manufacturing Solution. It allows you to issue work orders, develop schedules, and track costs associated with the manufacturing process. This solution provides you with complete control of the manufacturing process and the ability to see up-to-the-minute, work-in-progress information.
Factory Documentation facilitates clear and accurate user-defined shop floor documentation for production operations to be performed and materials to be issued, thereby enabling accuracy and efficient control of production processes.
Product Configurator provides a rules-based system, which enables on-the-fly configuration of highly customizable and dimensional products via a straightforward question and answer evaluation. Through the standardization of this process the configurator can be utilized by multiple people across the organization.
Lot Traceability, also known as Batch Traceability, provides instant access to all the critical information required to track manufactured lots, batches and serialized units. It includes materials consumed, warehouse information, inspection information, quantities and control dates. Lot Traceability assists in identifying root-causes for defects, leading to effective containment and resolution.
Material Requirements Planning (MRP) assists in managing the balance between supply and demand. MRP uses projected and actual demand and supply to assist in planning and creating realistic production, purchasing and supply transfer schedules. It also identifies capacity constraints and maintains optimal stock holdings in a multi-site and multi-warehouse environment. It therefore helps reduce inventory, increase manufacturing productivity, and ultimately facilitates cash flow.

Engineering Change Control (ECC) allows for product design tasks to be assigned to specific users or transferred between users. Users are notified of new tasks and reminded of outstanding tasks. It also allows for engineering design changes to be signed off electronically.

Projects and Contracts facilitates accurate profit reporting for long-term projects which require analysis of costs and revenues for multiple sections and levels.
Activity Based Costing (ABC) allows for the accumulation and recovery of costs associated with the purchasing, manufacturing and selling of items, thereby facilitating accuracy in calculating product profitability. ABC is not another inventory costing method (e.g. Average, Standard, FIFO, LIFO and Last) but, rather, it provides a different method of calculating these costs.
