Highlights for Manufacturing Software

  • The InterAcct Manufacturing software combines a multi level Bill of Materials with a job costing Production system – all integrated with the normal accounting functions.
  • The Bill of Materials system will provide a costing on finished goods (and sub assemblies). It allows you to combine Materials, Labour, Machine Time, Sub Contractors, Overhead Recovery, and Sundry costs.
  • When considering the production of an item (to cover stock and/or sales order requirements), the system provides both gross and net material requirement plans, plus machine capacity.
  • There are links to automatically create purchase orders, works orders, to reserve stock, and then to automatically issue materials to a production job.
  • There is the option to input daily production complete quantities to automatically issue and calculate the related Cost Items used.
  • The focus is on speed of data input, accuracy, and simplicity.

Software benefits for Manufacturers

  • The first step in creating your Bill of Materials, is to add the Materials, Sub Assemblies, and Finished Goods as Stock items.
  • For each “Make” item there is a Bill of Material (BOM) attached.
  • The Bill of Materials is typically a combination of Materials, Direct Factory Labour, Machine time, Sub Contractor charges, and Sundry costs (including indirect overhead recovery).
  • Materials can also be “Make” items. Calculations of quantities required can be Each, Linear, Square, or Cubic – with wastage factors added.
  • The current stock balance of materials is shown as an indication of what can be made.
  • Graphic images can be attached to the BOM along with work instructions.
  • To save time, a BOM can be used to copy and create another BOM – and them you simply modify the copy to suit.
  • BOM can be automatically re-costed at any time – based on the latest stock cost information.
  • Production jobs for a manufactured stock item can be for stock, and/or for one or more sales backorders.
  • The BOM is copied across to automatically create the production job’s estimate.
  • Existing material stock can be reserved at any time, and pro-forma purchase orders created automatically for what is needed.
  • Availability checks can be performed at any time to check whether all materials are available to start production.
  • Materials can be issued to the job from stock automatically.
  • As an option, you can input the actual production quantities each day, and InterAcct will calculate the labour time and materials used automatically.
  • Variance analysis is shown between a job’s budget and the actual cost items so that you may adjust the BOM accordingly.
  • As the finished stock item is completed production, it is transferred into stock. If related to a Sales Order, then this is updated to indicate it is now ready for despatch.
  • Another version of the BOM system has been created for Paint & Chemical manufacture – with both volume and weight formulations in batch quantities with differing packaging sizes.
  • There are numerous standard reports within InterAcct, and these can be personalised to suit.
  • The database of files, fields, and menus can also be personalised to suit individual requirements.
  • Material requirements can be shown gross, and “Net” of available stock.
