Simplify the definition of your products
The first decision for any industrial company is to define the products that will be manufactured and sold, and information such as their dimensions, weight, necessary materials, suppliers, delivery times, cost and estimated time of manufacture, quality, prices, instructions for care and handling, and warranties.
This definition allows companies to perform a detailed breakdown of the materials and operations required to produce each product and thus try to optimize its manufacture. This can be easily in the case of simple products, but normally industrial products are more complex.
When it comes to customizable products, specifically those that have attributes that can be selected by the buyer choosing between several options (length, width, colour, or finish; to name a few common examples), the complexity is much higher. The resulting number of final product combinations can be very high, complicating and slowing the breakdown and subsequent optimization enormously. The automation of this process saves manufacturing costs, and responds faster to customer orders and possible modifications.
Simplify the design of your articles
Define your products and register the information associated with them: description, characteristics, parameters, photos, units of purchase and sale, and more. You can also create families to simplify the definition of new products and maintain their homogeneity.
Detail everything that makes your articles possible
Define all the components and operations that are part of each of your products to analyze them properly during their design phase: cost, margin, price, suppliers, delivery time, storage or stock levels, among other aspects.
Automate the calculation of materials and operations
Automate the breakdown of your configurable products by using pre-defined formulas to calculate the materials and operations necessary to manufacture each family of products. You will save time and effort by not having do a breakdown for each different product, since the formulas associated with your family are used.
Control the status of your products
Continually control the status of all batches of products, with complete information about their location, history of movements, associated documentation (such as the waybill or invoice) and the possibility of searching by lot or document number.
