Acumatica Manufacturing – Production Management
Schedule productions on the shop floor and track material and labor costs. Compare standard and planned production costs to the actual costs of the production order.
Key Benefits of Production Management for Your Company:
Production Order Tracking
Use manufacturing operations management software to capture total manufacturing costs, including material, labor, machine, tool, overhead, and outside processes.
Employ multiple scheduling options including both forward and backward manufacturing scheduling methods.
Monitor and manage performance with detailed reports, including actual vs. standard/planned costs by detailed element – labor, material, machine, tools, fixed, and variable overheads.
Important Features of Manufacturing Operations Management
Production Order Changes
Manufacture to prior or alternate bills of material revisions, substitute operations and materials as desired. For project-centric manufacturers, project accounting integration creates production orders from project tasks, updates projects with manufacturing information, and aggregates cost tracking over multiple production runs so businesses can determine profitability for large jobs and contracts.
Lot and Serial Tracking
Maintain full lot and serial traceability throughout the lifecycle of the item. Capture lot and serial numbers at purchase receipt, inventory issues, and shop activity transactions.
View production order shortages. Create purchase orders and production orders for the parts that are short from a single screen.
Capture direct production labor to production orders by employee. Enter and track non-production time using indirect codes.
Issue stock and non-stock materials and parts to a production order. Capture lot and serial numbers on controlled items.
Backflushing Labor and Material
Eliminate reporting by backflushing labor or material when reporting the production quantity completed, useful when a company only wishes to record the production quantity.
Use barcode data collection to record labor and material transactions as well as inventory transactions including issues, receipts, cycle counting, and physical inventory.
Event Audit Trail
Trace all production activities (events) against a production order including description, date and time, and the ID of the user.
