Shop Floor

Maintaining favorable profit margins requires that you have accurate, up-to-the-minute information about production activity. With the AddonSoftware™ Shop Floor Control application, you get all the detail you need in a comprehensive, easy-to-use system. The system helps you smoothly schedule that activity and achieve maximum performance from your production floor.

On-target tracking improves efficiency and shortens lead time.

You’ll be able to plan your shop floor procedures efficiently. Automatically schedule each work order, either forward from the start date or backward from the completion date. Use the AddonSoftware™ MRP interface to automatically generate planned work orders for truly efficient manufacturing. You can plan work center activity with the Load Balance display and the Dispatch Display or Inquiry.

Get control of work in process through complete tracking of work orders as they move through the shop floor. You can review the progress and current status of each job by opening windows, and you’re alerted to any trouble spots with the Bottleneck Analysis Report and the Production Exception Report.

Reduce your manufacturing lead time by using work order history to compare your standard lead times against actual production lead times. And, you can use the Labor Costs Analysis Report to monitor efficiency and utilization factors.

AddonSoftware™ Shop Floor Control is an easy-to-use system that saves time and resources

 

  • You’ll stay in control of jobs and costs with work-in-progress tracking. Work orders collect, store and report the costs of material, labor, overhead and outside purchases related to the manufacture of a specific batch, job, group of items, or single item. After a work order is issued and until it is closed, the costs associated with the work order are accounted for in work in process.
  •  

  • Stock and Non-Stock type work orders allow the manufacture of repetitive or job shop processes. Custom work orders may be easily defined by using work order history or by modifying an existing or similar bill of materials.
  •  

  • On-line work order information is always available for you to review the current status of each operation or job. You can display the current status, scheduled completion dates, and cost information.
  •  

  • Complete control of inventory is easier with AddonSoftware™. While a work order is in process, components are committed and not available for other issues or sales. Finished goods are put on order until the job is complete, and lot or serial numbers can be issued or created with complete audit trails.
  •  

  • You can quickly retrieve work orders and locate them by customer, item, or work order number. During work order entry, code lookups increase operator speed and accuracy.
  •  

  • You’ll have the ability to track planned and quoted work orders by entering work order information to calculate costs. Then, view any material shortages and the planned schedule before releasing the job to the floor.
  •  

  • Plan your shop floor schedule, then easily check schedules with the Shop Floor Dispatch Report or inquiry screen. You can obtain an overview of workloads by using the Load Balance Inquiry.
  •  

  • A baseline for scheduling is established for you with Shop Floor Calendars for each work center. The calendar sets the available hours for each center, with holidays and days off defined, making it easy for you to maintain schedules.
  •  

  • Variance tracking is achieved through extensive cost accounting procedures. You’ll have complete tracking and reporting of the differences between actual and standard costs for all material and labor.
  •  

  • You’ll save time through automatically generated purchase orders for subcontracted services. The AddonSoftware™ Shop Floor Control module batches requirements for newly entered orders, then tracks subcontract purchase order status. The work order indicates whether purchase orders have been requisitioned, ordered, or received. The close process includes a verification that all purchases have been received.
