MANUFACTURING WORKBENCH

ERP for Manufacturing

Logical Simplicity, Massive Capability

Combining Simplicity and Functionality

The WorkWise ERP Manufacturing WorkBench (MWB) can be utilized to plan and track all segments of inventory. From forecasting finished items or spare parts to creating a production plan, the Manufacturing WorkBench allows complete visibility to all the parts of the planning puzzle.

The Manufacturing WorkBench handles items which are processed by MRP to generate a time-phased fulfillment plan as well as consistent demand items which require a simpler ROP methodology. The user has complete query ability to summarize, export, and drill down to the details of material history or shop, customer, or purchase orders.

Manufacturing WorkBench Benefits

  • 360 view of inventory including drill down to all supply and demand

  • Shop Load Analysis with exception management based on user-defined triggers which require action and the ability to change the load or the capacity to smooth variances.

Manufacturing WorkBench Key Features

In addition to a view to all the item information, there are some powerful data sets available in the Manufacturing WorkBench, such as:

MRP PLANNED ORDERS AND EXCEPTIONS

CUSTOMER BACK ORDERS AND LATE ITEMS

INVENTORY RE-ORDER SUGGESTIONS

BILL OF MATERIAL AVAILABILITY

SHOP ORDER SHORTAGES

NEGATIVE INVENTORY

MPS EXCEPTIONS

The MWB also includes access to all Supplier and Purchase Order Data including the inspection and disposition of purchased materials. For Engineer to Order manufacturers, the MWB includes the Estimating function which enables creation of a complete fully costed planned work order with margin and markups.

Any existing area of the product data base can be copied in the creation of an estimate or alternatively an estimate may be created from a “blank piece of paper”. Once the plan is reviewed and released via the Order Review function of the MWB, the entire execution cycle can be viewed and managed including shop order scheduling and management, and Job Cost Analysis.
