Actual costs are continuously compared to standard costs during the tracking of material and labour costs in the production process.
Manufacturing Applications Include:
Efficiently plan and manage inventories, costs, and manufacturing processes as well as full revision control. Products can be structured in the multi-level Bill of Materials software (BOM)/Routing.
Integrated BOM / Routing
Operations are linked to material, work instructions and overhead cost based on the time-phased release of materials.
Multi-level BOM / Routing
Engineering and cost views are provided for multiple levels of BOM and routing.

Estimates are easily prepared for existing or custom items using the BOM structure.
New estimates quickly
New estimates are created quickly by copying and adjusting existing BOM templates.
Schedule productions on the shop floor and track material and labour costs. Compare standard and planned production costs to the actual costs of the production order.
Production Order Tracking
Manufacturing costs, which include material, labour, machine, tool and overheads, are captured using manufacturing operations management.
Multiple scheduling options include both forward and backward scheduling methods.
Performance is monitored and managed analysing reports detailing labour, material, machine, tools, fixed and variable overhead costs.
Multi-level, dimensional, rules-based system with non-hierarchical feature selections and configuration evaluation. Use on quotes, sales orders, and/or production orders with real-time price and cost rollup.
Orders are configured quickly
New order configurations can easily create by copying and modifying existing orders or quotes.
A full history is kept of previous revisions and who created the new revision.
Prices are easily determined
The multiple roll-up capabilities combined with the feature-rich options allow for accurate unit pricing calculations.
Manage budgets, timesheets, billing, inventory, change orders and profitability for each business initiative.
Project Costs tracked
Tracking project costs provide a complete view of all project-related costs such as materials, labour, services and inventory items.

Actual project costs are compared with original and revised budgets including forecasting ability by period.
Change Order Control
Control is properly managed during the project management process and effectively recorded as a change in scope in the project accounting system. The workflow approval processes enforce the control of all required documents approvals required to ensure a change of scope is valid.
Manage Project Quotes
Project accounting is fully integrated with General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Sales Order, Purchase Order, Inventory and time and expense management modules offering easy creation and maintenance of Project quotes.
