Who can use the ManuSoft system?

Supplier: Manufacturing Software

The ManuSoft system may be used in any manufacturing situation that turns raw materials into a final product through the application of labour. ManuSoft is also suited to a jobbing shop situation, where the product is unique for a specific customer and usually where manufacture is preceded by a tender or quotation stage or where the product is customer demand rather than inventory replenishment.


Under these circumstances the Manufacturer will only make a profit if the original estimates of labour times and materials are met or bettered.

The ManuSoft system provides the perfect tool for keeping track of these variables and of reporting variances against the original estimates. In addition to producing a product profitably there are three other primary objectives that a Manufacturer must satisfy.

Price - The product must be price-competitive with the competition.

Service - The product must be produced on time and customer inquiries dealt with promptly.

Quality - The product must be produced to an accepted level of workmanship.
The ManuSoft system will aid the Manufacturer in all of these areas

The (QES) module provides a tool for identifying labour and material and for highlighting high price items so that quotations can be modified (an alternative material or process applied where these costs are excessive for example). The quotation analysis system will enable the manufacturer to determine the statistical success of the quoting function and to identify their relative market position and share.

The (PSC) and (MCS) systems provide the means to control the manufacture of the product. To list the labour and material requirements and schedule the job through production so that it may be produced on time. These facilities of the ManuSoft system together with the job status reporting facilities provide an enhanced level of customer service.

With regard to product quality, the entire ManuSoft system is structured around conveying accurate information to the shop floor. What has to be produced, how to make it, details of special instruction and/or requirements, recording materials used on a job and/or the successful completion of QC checks. The ManuSoft system is suitable for operation in association with ISO9000 quality control system and many of our clients have based their qualification around the operation of the ManuSoft system.

The ManuSoft system can be used by any manufacturing organisation, small or large jobbing shops or repetition manufacturing, make to order or make to stock. any manufacturing concern that needs to quote a product competitively and/or manufactures a product profitably with due regard to product quality and customer service can benefit by using the ManuSoft system.

A simple fact of life is those manufacturing control problems don't just go away, they usually get worse unless they are corrected. Clearly, some form of a computer assisted manufacturing control is a necessity in all manufacturing situations if the manufacturer is to remain competitive.
