Our innovative solutions will help your company to meet essential quality, safety and profitability requirements.
CONTROL PRODUCT DESIGN CHANGES
Constant innovation is one of the key factors to remaining competitive and on-going research and development to design new and better products is integral to the industry. Your ability to design new products and modify existing designs, as well as improve time-to-market is critical to remaining competitive and profitable.
SYSPRO provides tools to streamline and track the introduction of new product designs and amendments to existing designs, along with relevant costings. The Engineering Change Control (ECC) module enables you to apply strict control over your design-to-market processes by providing an integrated rules-based electronic workflow system with full version control, security and auditable history.
ECC gives you the tools to record and track new and modified product design and process changes, assess the impact of these changes on costs and associated data, and control the change routing and approval processes. ECC’s queries, audit trail, history and archive facilities give you quick on-line access to details of prior product versions, as well as the option of reverting to the production of a prior product version. In addition, the facility to attach copies of product design drawings to version and release levels provides access to visual details of revisions.
The Where-used Query facility enables you to identify all items affected by the raising of an Engineering Change order for all routes identified as being under engineering change control. In addition, SYSPRO provides a ‘replace component where-used’ facility that enables the quick replacement of one item with a valid substitute item, thereby streamlining design changes.
SYSPRO’s ECC, Bill of Materials, Work-in-Progress and Factory Documentation modules enable you to implement controls to ensure that your products are manufactured under consistent processes, to the correct designs and specifications. Single-level, multi-level, co and by-product bills are all catered for and flexible bill definitions accommodate complex component and sub-assembly requirements.
The diverse nature of manufacturing methods employed in the industry entails the synchronisation and integration of a variety of manufacturing techniques all within one fully integrated software system. Whether manufacturing to order or to stock, using discrete or process methods; engineering to order; or building large project-based assets; SYSPRO’s outstanding flexibility ensures a comprehensive set of tools to help you plan, record, track and control your output. SYSPRO functionality enables you to keep finished goods in inventory at an absolute minimum and enhances your decision-making regarding what to manufacture, with what resources, when, where, and in what sequence.
Serial tracking is designed to provide full tracking at a transactional level for those items that have serial numbers assigned for warranty or compliance purposes. The serial numbers can either be unique per individual item or the same for a batch of items.
