Traceability is especially challenging because problems can occur at any point along your supply chain, from R&D through materials handling to assembly and shipping. Broken or slow processes can be particularly costly – and even lethal.
Our annual Customer Day is one of the highlights of K3 Syspro’s calendar. We relish the opportunity to engage with customers, showcase our suite of solutions and debate the latest issues in the world of ERP. This year’s event will be held on 7 November at the Jaguar Visitor Centre in West Bromwich. We are excited about seeing movers and makers from across the country gather at the epicentre of UK manufacturing to explore how best to build digital resilience.
Global ERP Provider, SYSPRO, has announced the availability of its latest release with two key disruptors in mind that are shaping the modern manufacturer and distributor. The globalisation of business and the emergence of the digital economy.
The Requirements Planning system (with its online Material Planning System and Job, Purchase Order, and Supply Chain Review programs) enables straight-forward conversions of the suggestions from the Requirements Calculation results to live data. It is a bucket-less system which provides the facilities to run 'what-if' scenarios. Variable planning intervals and user-defined planning horizons offer further flexibility.
SYSPRO Projects & Contracts facilitates accurate profit reporting for long-term projects which require analysis of costs and revenue for multiple sections and levels. The module also caters for progress billings, deposits and retentions. You can define schedules against which progress billings must take place and the method of billings.
The work in progress module allows the material required to produce a product to be automatically merged from the corresponding Bill of Materials. All of the required paperwork to move the job through the shop can then be generated from each work order, including travellers, picking sheets, dispatch sheets and operation tickets.
SYSPRO Factory Documentation facilitates clear and accurate user-defined shop floor documentation for production operations to be performed and materials to be issued. thereby enabling accuracy and efficient control of production. The Factory documentation system enables you to define up to four different factory documentation formats for various uses such as; job tickets, material requisitions, route cards and travellers.
SYSPRO ECC module enforces controls in product design with a user-defined workflow that can supplement or replace the paper trail that usually accompanies any product design or chances to product design. Groups or individuals are electronically notified of required actions, accompanied by instructions, comments, documents and drawings.
SYSPRO BOM is designed to ensure your organisation has complete control over the product structure. This module ensures that engineering, production, purchasing and order processing are utilising the same information. The Bill of Materials is defined by the manufacturing process and includes; work centers, labour, tools, dies, inserts, fixtures, raw materials, packaging, scrap rates, setup times, yields and equipment. BOM allows you to facilitate accurate expected costs against which actual production costs can be tracked.
