If your manufacturing company depends on spreadsheets or hand-filled forms to process orders, there’s a good chance high error rates are hurting your profit margins. For example:
ERROR: Production orders contain incorrect item numbers.
EFFECT: The wrong products get produced.
ERROR: Misplaced orders are not scheduled.
EFFECT: Rush products require costly expedition.
ERROR: Bills of materials (BOMs) are calculated incorrectly.
EFFECT: Excess materials take up warehouse space.
The common culprit in these situations? Repetitive tasks involving manual entry. The solution is easier and more cost-effective than you think: manufacturing process management software from WebRevelation. Our custom web-based systems eliminate the drudgery and data errors associated with manual ordering and production processes. These easy-to-use process management software tools connect all associated functions and integrate seamlessly with your ERP software. From order placement to invoicing, gain greater control over these processes – and your bottom line.
Manage jobs more efficiently with greater visibility
Our affordable manufacturing process software also adds visibility, and makes your people and processes more efficient. When an order comes in, the system knows how much it needs of which materials. It automatically generates the BOM and sends it to purchasing to determine whether the required materials are on-hand. If so, it creates the work order and breaks down all the related steps.
