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.
