Manufacturing Modules

Bill of Material Documentation & Training

Summary:

The Bill of Material module identifies a standard list of items, or components, required to produce a different, or parent, item. It defines the relationships between items being produced and the items needed to produce them. A produced item can be composed of one or more items which might be purchased, assembled, fabricated or changed in some way to create a new item. This new item may be sold directly, or used itself to make another item in a product’s structure.

Labor Processing Documentation and Training

Summary:

Fitrix Labor Processing collects labor transactions for production orders. Labor is entered for both setup and run hours, and for direct and indirect hours. Order completion statistics are updated real-time. The hours and completion are analyzed for efficiency at multiple levels within the organization. Efficiency inquiries and reports show this performance in summary and detail formats. Labor Processing is an application in the Production management family.

Standard Costing Documentation and Training

Summary:

Fitrix Standard Costing defines the expected or standard costs to be incurred to produce or purchase items. It uses cost elements defined in the Bill of Material and Standard Routing applications to compute standard costs per unit of an item. These costs can be tracked against actual costs to produce or purchase and the variances can then be analyzed. In addition to the current standard cost, Fitrix supports the definition of an unlimited number of other standard costs for items.

Actual Costing (coming soon!)

Summary:

Actual Costing analyzes actual production costs for an item and compares them to one or more standard costs. Cost variances are presented in summary format, by order, item, or product via inquiry and reporting programs. Detail variances are presented by component and routing step. Actual Costing is dependent on the Production Order Processing module. The actual production costs are derived from the material issued and the labor reported to production orders.

Master Scheduling (coming soon!)

Summary:

Master Scheduling is the primary driver to plan and schedule production to support external demand for products. It facilitates detailed entry of production forecasts and uses these forecasts, along with sales order demand, to generate a Master Production schedule. Rough-cut capacity planning is also available, to analyze commitments placed on critical production resources.

Production Scheduling Documentation & Training

Summary:

Fitrix Production Scheduling gives you the tools to maximize efficiency while reducing costs. You can view at a glance which resources are being under or over utilized and can adjust your production accordingly to balance the load. As new orders are placed or existing order due dates change, you can see real time the effect on your production capacity. The application also provides recommendations to changes in order due dates based on the work remaining to be done.

Production Order Processing Documentation & Training

Summary:

The Production Order Processing module controls the movement of materials during the production process. Production is managed through the use of production orders. These orders indicate the quantities and due dates of items being manufactured. They also contain lists of materials required, extracted from the standard bill of material, and expected operations, from the standard routing.
