Assemble-to-Order Manufacturing Solutions

Differentiate your product offerings, improve delivery performance, and customer service, and streamline constituent order-to-invoice processes and operations

Edgeware’s ERP software solution has the capability to automatically raise all actions related to fulfilling the customer order, through its sales order, purchase order and job linking features. This ensures the integrity of quotation and margin information and the accuracy of order details. Once the product is receipted from production, the order is automatically updated and control passes to the Sales Order system.

The rules-based Product Configurator mitigates the need for multiple bills of material. It facilitates the capture of permissible-configuration design and constraint knowledge via the definition of multiple rules and selections. This enables the building of a pre-defined logic engine, which includes automatic costing and pricing. This, in turn, facilitates rapid and accurate order-taking by non-technical staff and thus reduces the involvement of experts in routine transactions. Additionally, it enables the automatic generation of factory orders and purchase orders with all the relevant detail required to assemble the ordered product. The results are reduced configuration errors and a streamlined the sales cycle. Furthermore, the Configurator Wizard can be used to generate quotes, estimates and bills of material. Configurations may be stored in a library for the rapid generation of repeat orders.

Planning the manufacture of commonly used sub-assembly stocks and the purchase of their constituent materials is facilitated by Inventory Optimization and Material Requirements Planning features. The Inventory Optimization suite of modules enables the analysis and ranking of stock for the modeling and creation of suitable stock policies to drive optimal inventory levels and reduce obsolescence.

Edgeware’s ERP solution has multi-level master production scheduling which provides the capability to optionally master schedule standard stocked sub-assemblies based on the configurable inclusion of sources of demand and supply, as well as the application of requirements rules and order-point replenishment policies. The master schedule is exploded through all levels of the bills of material via the material requirements planning calculation using infinite capacity to determine detailed time-phased production, as well as material and capacity requirements. Alternatively, where the master scheduling phase is not required, configurable demand sources can be used to drive material requirements calculations directly.

Purchasers can use the resulting purchase suggestions to plan material procurement, while planners can use the resulting jobs as input to whichever scheduling tool within the software which is most suited for modeling their capacity and scheduling requirements; scheduling functionality extends from manual load leveling in the Work in Progress module through to automated single or multiple-constraint-based scheduling and sequencing in the Factory Scheduler module. The Work in Progress module enables the capture, costing and tracking of time, materials and overheads consumed in production. Trial kitting features enable you to quickly check that you have all components required for a job or bill of jobs before issuing any materials or launching a job onto the assembly area and, if not, where shortages exist. Material and labor consumed in assembly operations may be backflushed or, for longer jobs, issued to work-in-progress in real-time. And lot traceability and serial tracking features provide comprehensive product and component traceability.

The software’s integrated nature, along with its Enterprise Performance Management suite, gives you visibility to related information across your business, on multiple dimensions from local and remote locations. It includes a variety of powerful analysis tools such as Executive Dashboards, Cash Flow Forecast, Analytics and Financial Ratios. Its easy-to-use, powerful functionality promotes improved manufacturing and operational efficiency, as well as excellent customer service, throughout the entire enterprise.
