The Bill of Materials (BOM) subsystem allows multi-level structures to be created and organized to form BOMs. Structures interface with inventory, sales analysis, purchasing and order processing, ensuring accurate inventory levels, sales tracking, and materials planning. There are four different structure types: Production, Finish, Selling and Receiving. Additionally, Option Based Order Entry is made possible through the use of Material Links and Material Modifiers.
Material links provide a connection between an item and the material required to build or ship that item. These will allow your engineers to setup a manufacturing process for an item, regardless of how many different types of materials it’s ordered in. Additionally, material links allow you to setup one manufacturing process of multiple similar items that vary in size. Whereas, without material links in your system you would be required to setup a separate BOM structure for each variation. All material links are automatically tied into option based order entry to give even more functionality.
The BOM subsystem also features MRP functions allowing you to perform projected production, regular production, materials management and reporting. This system will give you a good indicator of the products and raw materials needed to fill actual and projected demand. This allows your purchasing department to look into the future, and see an accurate measure of what items or materials are needed for existing and new production orders; reducing the chances of running low in stock.
The General Ledger module gives you the ability to budget, control, and accumulate individual financial transactions to produce financial statements. Journal entries can be posted manually or setup for automatic posting. All financial statements can be customized to fit your company. The chart of accounts allows you to define numbering and account descriptions. Some additional features of this module are:

The Inventory Control subsystem is tailored to manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. This solution will help you manage your inventory and improve production scheduling to increase turn-over and reduce shrinkage. The inventory master is maintained with daily stock movements and facilitates segregation of data by company and by warehouse. This module features the inventory calculations, analysis, and reports you need to make key decisions and lower your inventory carrying costs. Variations of each item no longer require you to create a new item/style number for variations of an item or style, saving you time and space in the inventory master; in addition to greatly reducing maintenance tasks. Order Processing, Work Orders, Production Orders, Transfers, and Purchasing all integrate with Inventory Control to provide a powerful ýJust in Time ý inventory management system.
The Item Record maintains information such as vendor, product class, G/L class, and product type (i.e. build to order, regular inventory, non-stocked, pseudo- item, FIFO required, time limited item, combination item, serial number required, exchange required, and finished item). Items in the record can be looked up by number, alpha key, description, or alpha key and description combination. Units of measure can be established for each item relative to purchasing and selling units. Each inventory item also will have ware house records, showing location, warehouse, or store information such as ABC class, sales tax status, promotional, min/max reorder points, Date last ordered, date last sold, FOB cost, last cost, Avg cost, quantities, units of measure and more. Each item can have a detailed description stored on it, and all item records are able to have additional custom fields assigned by your staff, attached to them. Item packaging information, regarding cube size and carton code, is also stored with item information. As transactions occur, and items are removed from inventory, quantities available for sale are updated; the system even keeps track of items reserved for sales orders, on-hand, outstanding P.O’s, and transfers.
The item master is automatically updated from receiving for adjusted cost, last cost and moving weighted average. Adjusted cost is automatically calculated by multiplying the freight factor by the FOB cost. Additionally, you are able to view a complete movement history over multiple years, months, or days for each item, by location, warehouse, or store. Furthermore, this system automatically calculates lead time by suing the actual lapsed time between when a PO is issued to a vendor and when the items are received.
