SYSPRO ERP Assemble-to-Order Software
Use multi-level master production scheduling, trial kitting, and material and labour back-flushing and easily optimise materials usage.
SYSPRO enables assemble-to-order manufacturers to differentiate their product offerings, improve delivery performance and customer service, and streamline constituent order-to-invoice processes and operations.
SYSPRO has the capability to automatically raise all actions related to fulfilling the customer order, through its sales order, purchase order and job linking features, thereby ensuring the integrity of quoted and margin information, and the accuracy of order details. Once the product is receipted from production, the order is automatically updated and control passes to the Sales Order system.
The rules-based Product Configurator mitigates the need for multiple bills of material, facilitating the capture of permissible-configuration design and constraint knowledge via the definition of multiple rules and selections. This enables the building of a pre-defined logic engine, including automatic costing and pricing, that facilitates rapid and accurate order-taking by non-technical staff and thus reduces the involvement of experts in routine transactions.
Additionally, it enables the automatic generation of factory orders and purchase orders with all the relevant detail required to assemble the ordered product, thereby reducing configuration errors and streamlining the sales cycle. Furthermore, the Configurator Wizard can be used to generate quotes, estimates and bills of material, and configurations may be stored in a library for the rapid generation of repeat orders.
Planning the manufacture of commonly used sub-assembly stocks and the purchase of their constituent materials is facilitated by SYSPRO's Inventory Optimisation and Material Requirements Planning features. The Inventory Optimisation suite of modules enables the analysis and ranking of stock for the modelling and creation of suitable stock policies to drive optimal inventory levels and reduce obsolescence.
SYSPRO's multi-level master production scheduling provides the capability to optionally master schedule standard stocked sub-assemblies based on the configurable inclusion of sources of demand and supply, as wellas the application of requirements rules and order-point replenishment policies.
The master schedule is exploded through all levels of the bills of material via the material requirements planning calculation using infinite capacity to determine detailed time-phased production, as well as material and capacity requirements. Alternatively, where the master scheduling phase is not required, configurable demand sources can be used to drive material requirements calculations directly.
Purchasers can use the resulting purchase suggestions to plan material procurement, while planners can use the resulting jobs as input to whichever scheduling tool within SYSPRO is most suited for modelling their capacity and scheduling requirements; scheduling functionality extends from manual load levelling in the Work in Progress module through to automated single– or multiple-constraint-based scheduling and sequencing in the Factory Scheduler module.
The Work in Progress module enables the capture, costing and tracking of time, materials and overheads consumed in production. Trial kitting features enable you to quickly check that you have all components required for a job or bill of jobs before issuing any materials or launching a job onto the assembly area and, if not, where shortages exist.
Material and labour consumed in assembly operations may be back-flushed or, for longer jobs, issued to work-in-progress in real-time. And lot traceability and serial tracking features provide comprehensive product and component traceability.
SYSPRO's integrated nature, along with its Enterprise Performance Management suite, gives you visibility to related information across your business, on multiple dimensions from local and remote locations. It includes a variety of powerful analysis tools such as Executive Dashboards, Cash Flow Forecast, SYSPRO Analytics and Financial Ratios.
Its easy-to-use, powerful functionality promotes improved manufacturing and operational efficiency, as well as excellent customer service, throughout the entire enterprise.
