Easily create complex multi-level BOMs in minutes. Unlimited depth and width. Simply enter in your parts and link them together.
Our flow through design ensures that any changes made to the items or operations will be reflected in the BOM.
Reduce time with our smart Copy feature. This will replicate all BOM and operation information.
Adjust in Process
When you create work orders, Factory Edge creates the requirements for all levels in the bill of material. You can even edit the BOM for an individual work order, without effecting the master bill of material.
Where Used - Find out everywhere a specific item is used. Bill of Manufacture - A powerful tool for quoting, it shows components and operations, including individual and rolled-up costs.
Easy to use tool allows the user to mass replace where an item is used on all Bills of Material. Allows for individual exclusion.
All inventory levels and allocation is reported in real time. Easy to use reports show items that are below minimum stock levels and items that may have problems in the future. Allocation of stock is based on:
If you are trying to decide whether you have enough materials to make an assembly, our Inventory Components report will help. It shows the components of a particular item, including how many of the item can be made with existing component inventory.
Other reports are available, including Inventory Status, Inventory History and Inventory Future. Inventory values can be calculated as part of Accounting in Factory Edge.
Eliminate costly material errors with Factory Edge.
Our software can help you track inventory and forecast needs. You can easily compare stock levels, production requirements, sales requirements, planned production, and planned purchases. Our software is designed to help you minimize inventory costs.
Inventory Problems -
Shows which items are below minimum stock levels, and the anticipated dates (and amounts) of future problems.
Inventory Components - This report tells if you have enough materials to make a specific assembly. It shows the components of a particular item, including how many of the item can be made with existing component inventory.
Inventory Status - See your current inventory levels.
Inventory Future - Using Sales order and production information, this report will summarize your future inventory usage.
Factory Edge also helps you manage other manufacturing resources. The scheduling module can help you identify production bottlenecks and capacity problems. You can run production schedules, then see work center loading and schedule problems. You can also track production status, track production times and monitor efficiencies. Factory Edge has accounting and other modules available to help you make the jump from MRP to ERP (enterprise resource planning).
Factory Edge includes accounting data from beginning balances, invoices, receipts, bills, payments, and journal entries.
Depending on how you use Factory Edge, inventory transactions may also be posted as part of the accounting data (including inventory adjustments/scrap, production made, production used, cost of goods sold, etc.).
Accounting reports include the balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, trial balance, general ledger, inventory value reports, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and job costs.
Factory Edge automatically calculates job costs associated with work orders. For work orders that are linked to sales orders, sales order and profitability information are also provided. Many of the column labels on the job cost list are "hot labels" that link to pages containing supporting data. Like almost all data in Factory Edge, job costs can be filtered and sorted by almost any criteria, and can be copied into Excel for further manipulation.
Job Cost data includes production times (employee rates and/or work center rates), purchases (materials, services, outside operations), and materials used.
Factory Edge handles the full sales cycle, from quoting and estimating, through accounts recievable and commissions.
Factory Edge includes the full purchasing cycle, from Requests for Quotation (RFQs) to Accounts Payable.
As much as possible, steps in the cycle are automated. For example, with one mouse click, you can copy an RFQ to a PO, receive the materials that are on the PO, copy material receipts to a bill, or pay the bill.
FactoryEdge provides Lot numbers for forward and reverse traceability.
At time of receipt parts are assigned a lot number. When parts are consumed in production, the user is prompted to define the lot used.
When sub assemblies or finished goods are produced they are assigned a lot number. This Lot number will link to the material lots used in production.
Upon shipment the user is prompted to enter lot information. This links specific sales orders, and therefore customers, to specific lots. Complete tracabiliy reports can be generated.
Lots and Q/C
If an item is returned by a customer, or if a material is returned to a vendor, the information is logged against its lot. Q/C reports can therefore be broken down by Lot.
Automatic or Manual Lots
Lots can be assigned automatically, on a numeric basis, by the system. Also, lots can be manually assigned an alpha-numeric code. This is a global setting.
