Manufacturing Process Management in Automotive Industry
Project based manufacturing, or production to the stock is supported by the basic production module.
Bills of Materials
Through the system, you can categorize an item as being both a finished good and a subassembly. BOM additionally comes with the ability to support the building of kits. These are basically individual items that are packaged or grouped together for the creation of a specialized item. Production recipes for kits can easily be defined as well as assigned to varying items. A BOM can also contain several different varied whose usage depends on stock availability or item variants.
Management of capacity
Production orders are particularly meant to be used for the management of conversion of purchased materials into manufactured items. The following information can be added to production orders:
- Products that are planned to be manufactured
- Materials that have been selected already
- The components necessary for the production of manufactured products
- Products that have already been manufactured
- Materials that have previously been used for manufacturing operations
You may follow an order-by-order basis for the production orders both automatically and manually on the basis of other criteria. Production orders are also meant to assist in the maintenance of production in timely manner while cutting down on raw materials or spare parts whenever manufacturing is started. In the meantime, it also assists in the creation of new produced items whenever it is put through completion.
Recommendations are also made by the system to release supply orders for items by purchase, production or transfer. You can even acquire recommendations to reschedule unfinished manufacturing orders whenever due dates and need dates are out of phase.
