Production processes even in one industry vary greatly depending on the products manufactured. Products are usually diverse in types and types and, moreover, often go through a number of stages during the life cycle, therefore, the company requires different management models. For manufacturing to work smoothly you need the best erp for manufacturing industry

Support for the full life cycle of products from development to decommissioning begins with the fact that any unit of production is accounted for in the system. Moreover, for a unit for which maintenance is provided, not only the specification, but also the list of spare parts and service history can be entered into the system. 

Volumetric scheduling with the use of Microsoft Project allows production planning and planning on the basis of existing sales orders and the availability of critical components (materials) and production equipment.

Planning of material requirements allows for the start-up of an application to work to calculate the requirements for all materials and components, taking into account stocks, planned receipts and shipments. These requirements arise on the basis of sales orders, shop orders, work orders (repairs). This information is compared with unreserved stocks, supply orders and shop orders to determine the need for raw materials and components. Additionally, you can take into account data on independent demand, for example, the forecast of demand for spare parts.

The task of planning the needs in production capacity is to determine the actual timing of the production program at disposable production capacity. Planning workplace workloads facilitates the process of identifying possible bottlenecks and allows you to smooth out the underload and overload of production facilities and personnel. 

One of the results of the module’s work is the system-generated orders for the creation of shop orders and supply orders. Orders are created based on the acceptance or adjustment of applications. 

In the shop order, you can add work instructions (technical conditions for performing operations) on order fulfillment, as well as add or exclude components.

There are informational messages about the threat of overdue delivery of sales orders due to delays in procurement and the implementation of shop orders. 

Control of product costs. 

Standard cost price (standard costing). When calculating it, they are guided by the provisions that the planned values are based on the forecast, direct variable costs are planned by product, the remaining costs by cost centers.

Process cost (activity based costing) - in contrast to the standard cost, it uses the parameters of the process of creating value added as a result of the consumption of various resources. For non-standard products, which may require preparation of production, design and technological study, several equipment adjustment cycles, these processes can be identified as sources of process costs.

It is possible to combine the standard and process costs in one hybrid cost model. Calculations of the aforementioned cost models are based on summation of cost components and take into account the specifications and technological route, as well as the process. The calculation contains estimates of the costs of a given level of production and of all subordinate ones up to the purchased components and raw materials. 

The current costing of production on order reflects the volume of work in progress on order. Based on this, the current production situation can be analyzed and adjusted based on an analysis of the causes of deviations from the preliminary costing. Operational functional cost analysis of production allows you to quickly see where the deviations begin.

Analysis of the work of production with a wide range of products and a large turnover is very difficult and require a large amount of time. ABC-analysis (Activity-Based Costing) helps to set priorities correctly, with which you can immediately identify the group of 20 percent of goods that generate 40 percent of income, and identify 10 percent of goods that generate 5 percent of income and take 25 percent production capacity.
