SYSPRO’s extensive features foster the centralised management and control of the product design process. Simultaneously, its comprehensive security, customisation and multi-lingual capabilities enable you to provide tailored access to external collaborative partners worldwide.
Import facilities and SYSPRO e.net solutions facilitate improved electronic collaboration with your customers to create customer-specified designs. Simultaneously, the Contact Management system provides a central area for recording and querying all communications regarding collaborative activities.
Multi-level bills of material for designs modelled on CAD systems can be imported into SYSPRO, thereby reducing double-entry and the margin for error and providing a solid basis for calculating costs and lead times for quoting to the customer. Other product-related data such as technical drawings can be imported and linked to the relevant products in SYSPRO. Also, photographs, video clips and other multimedia files can be attached and viewed on-demand.
SYSPRO’s powerful engineering change control features enable creating user-defined workflows to control the product development process and ensure electronic sign-off. Bill of Material component and routing changes and the impact on existing transactional data are controlled through paperless approval and authorisation mechanisms, including ECC event triggers, as defined by your organisation.
In custom-build and project and service environments, job cost accuracy is essential in attaining correct pricing and profitability and assessing the reliability of the quoting process. Also, it is vital for tracking the validity of current costs in standard costing environments.
For custom-build environments, SYSPRO’s Quotations module enables detailed estimates based on all aspects of the job (or jobs) and the automatic creation of jobs, purchase orders and sales orders based on approved quotes. The Quotations module ensures the integrity of the quote and margin information throughout the system. This same functionality is available for project and service environments, with the added benefits of hierarchical analysis of costs and margins per head and section.
SYSPRO’s fully integrated solution enables capturing, tracking and analysing job and product costs and profitability in real-time. Details of expected versus actual costs for material and scrap, internal and external labour, fixed and overhead costs per job, or group of jobs, is available through SYSPRO’s querying and reporting features. The system enables identifying exceptions and problems as they occur, such as areas of high-cost expenditure, production scrap and rework, and issues in the quoting process. Furthermore, for those businesses wishing to take advantage of government and private enterprise grant programs, detailed R&D job data is easily extracted for regulatory reporting requirements.
With SYSPRO’s visibility to product cost details and profit margins, including co- and by-products, you can evaluate job cost performance, margin analysis, and pricing confidently.
SYSPRO’s Bill of Materials module provides the tools to maintain the demonstrated capacity for work centres and productive units. Simultaneously, SYSPRO Factory Scheduling enables the configuration of shift patterns and identifies and considers multiple constraints such as tooling.
The Bill of Materials module allows the design of product routings from which Work in Progress and Requirements Planning derive the capacity required, dynamically adjusted for order or batch size.
