Define a Work Order Job

Before planning or production can begin, it is necessary to define the work order in terms of what how and when to manufacture using Pure Manufacturing's Job-Manager.

Define a Work Order Job Process Routing and B.O.M

A graphical tree-like structure in the left panel defines the manufacturing process routing (B.O.R) and secondary process or sub-assemblies required to complete the work order.

Details for each selected operation or sub-assembly are shown in the main panel which has several tabs that groups relevant information together.

The required qty, work centre, estimated setup and run times, work instructions, drawings, attachments and detailed specifications required for every process can either be cloned from a template or uniquely defined.

Real-Time Graphical Status

The progress percentage completion status for each operation is clearly shown by using a coloured status bar that stretches across each operation tree branch.

An icon next to the operation provides additional information about the status, such as whether it is released, if it is completed, and, if you are using Pure Quality, whether there are any open NCR's for that process.

Work Order Job Costing

Cost Estimates for individual processes are automatically calculated based upon the selected work-centre and the estimated setup and run times.

These costs are rolled up into the work-order totals and may be used for quotation and further cost analysis.

Raw Materials

A Bill of Material (B.O.M) can be attached and issued to individual processes to be used for planning and also for controlling and recording the issue of both traceable and non-traceable raw materials to each operation.

Job Classes

You can filter, track and report different work order types like First Article, Production, Repair, Development and Rework by using the Job-Classes feature.

These Job-Classes are user-definable, you may have as many as you like, each uses a unique auto-number profile with a variety of automated prefix and suffix options like the current year (-YY) or month (-MM).

Work Orders and Part IDs

Work Order Jobs may be either make-to-order or make-to-stock, manufactured with or without part numbers, and be created from scratch or cloned from an existing job definition.

If you manufacture your own products and your Part ID is based on a nomenclature, then the optional Part ID Generator module will allow you to predefine your part id and description structure. and the user then generates a new id based on the selection of parameters.

Jobshop (high-mix, low-volume) manufacturers, who may never receive repeat orders for the same item twice, are not forced to create a part number for each work order or sub-assembly, it is optional.

Alternatively, Work Order Templates allow entire repeat orders to be quickly and easily created, and Operation Templates allow the adding of commonly used operations, and all with just a couple of mouse-clicks.
