Manufacturing Software & MRP System

The Accentis Enterprise Manufacturing Module combines innovation and a host of time-saving features with the solid structure of a well-designed and robust MRP system.

The manufacturing module is tightly integrated with all other modules and has been designed to satisfy the needs of most small/medium sized manufacturers while remaining as straight-forward and easy to use as the rest of Accentis Enterprise.

Full Gantt-chart based routing capabilities provide fine-tuning of your scheduling requirements or the simplified “start and finish” work order procedure can be used for less complicated manufacturing enterprises.

An unlimited number of reports can be created to bring critical information directly to your desktop such as live drill-down of immediate and anticipated product requirements, machine capacity constraints, predictive scheduling and labour force forecasting.

Accentis Enterprise manufacturing software and MRP system functional capabilities at a glance…

m

Bill of materials management capabilities will exceed your expectations

The Accentis Enterprise Bill of materials management capabilities will exceed your expectations, with a clean and intuitive interface and easy manipulation of your BOM through drag and drop or cut and paste. User-defined text or numeric fields can be populated for each item of your BOM to store vital information such as machine coordinates or fixing instructions.

m

Unlimited number of sub-levels

Each kit can have an unlimited number of sub-levels of assemblies, and there is no practical limit to the number of items that can be put into any assembly. You may have multiple occurrences of the same item code in a kit (no need to consolidate these unless you want to).

m

First-class, Gantt-chart production planning

A first-class, Gantt-chart production planning console provides a perfect tool for monitoring and scheduling your work-orders to specified work-centres or resources. See in an instant which machines are being fully utilised, where conflicts exist and how lean or optimised your manufacturing schedule is.

m

Global search and replace of components

Accentis Enterprise supports global search and replace of components across multiple Bills of materials in a single step. Simply define which parts you need to replace and the replacement part and then select the list of BOMs within which you want the replacement to occur. Phasing out raw materials or changing part codes across an entire range of products has never been so easy.

m

Work order routing facilities

Comprehensive work order routing facilities allow you to define the complete path of a work order through your workshop as well as who will be assigned to each route, which work centres will be used and for how long. Your bill of materials list can be allocated to each route enabling analysis of when materials will be required.

m

Repairs and returns

Repairs and returns are fully supported whether for warranty or credit. Goods are tracked from when they first arrive and can be processed through a manufacturing repairs facility that allows you to record details of the affected product, the associated problems and parts/labour used to rectify any issues

m

Work centre management is powerful yet easy to use

Work centre management is powerful yet easy to use within Accentis Enterprise. An unlimited number of work centres (work bench, machine or even person) can be defined and allocated to groups. Availability schedules can be entered for a work centre as can a variety of costing parameters. Work centres can even be decommissioned to allow for re-scheduling of work orders.

m

Bill of Materials import facility

A Bill of Materials import facility provides effortless population of your BOMs from external programs, eliminating possible data entry errors. With the ability to store coordinate and assembly information for each item of a BOM, this feature allows direct import of a BOM from CAD or design packages.

m

Graphical version analysis tool

Our unique graphical version analysis tool lets you see instantly what changes were made between two different versions of the same assembly. In fact, our powerful version tracking features allow multiple versions to be compared against each other as well as different products’ BOMs to be compared with one another for costing or comparison.

m

Clock-on, clock-off shop floor console

A Clock-on, clock-off shop floor console makes timesheet management a breeze and combined with full barcoding and biometric support significantly reduces the possibility of staff timesheet data errors. All work orders or routes can be started and stopped with the simple scan of a barcode, RFID tag or biometric device such as a fingerprint reader.

m

Partial builds and partial completion

Partial builds and partial completion is fully supported in Accentis Enterprise. Work orders can be requested by one user and built by another, build from one warehouse into another, or un-built, un-started and back-flushed upon completion. Work orders can even be started without having all raw materials in stock and then finished when all parts are available. Every transaction is recorded in detail and a full audit trail of activity is available.
