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.
In addition to a view to all the item information, there are some powerful data sets available in the Manufacturing WorkBench, such as:
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.
Role-Based ERP WorkBenches by WorkWise are an innovation that allows the user to assemble all the modules and applications necessary to fit a particular role or task into a single view. Everything is available in one view, sharing the items of interest with multiple functions.
