Production One provides extended manufacturing production order capabilities to SAP Business OneTM. Production One is ideal for companies looking to track the detailed costs and production processes during the assembly or production of work orders. Production oriented organizations can now flexibly and easily manage their labor and material costs using touch screen and bar code collection devices each step of the way on the shop floor. They can schedule jobs, and cost jobs in a real-time environment.
Companies looking to lower their operational and engineering cost, and improve quality control of job related and production based orders will find Production One to be a valuable addition to SAP Business One. Production One allows the tracking of detailed production routing steps, job progress scheduling, and job costing with all labour, overhead, outside services and materials used. Production One allows SAP Business One users to create a production order right from the sales order screen. It can also estimate the delivery date in order to set correct expectations. Production One provides revision control for engineering changes to the Bill of Material. An item can be flagged as being under revision control and make approved changes to the BOM effective on a future date. You can review history, or create a new revision.
Once logged in, the Business One user is presented with a list of operations or jobs which are scheduled for a given department, and they can begin recording their time and track the materials used for the orders assigned to them. After completing their assigned operations, the user can record actual item quantities produced and the system will time stamp the duration of the production order, and the production labour is posted to the job or production order within the Business One application.
Production One includes predefined, packaged cost accounting reports which provide improved visibility to operational profitability in summary and detail formats, and users can create their own reports using the Report One for SAP Business One.
