Manufacturing

Managing manufacturing is a challenge; predicting demand, correctly analysing material and resource requirements, production planning and ensuring quality output all form part of a manufacturing business’s essential activities. Even small errors can have damaging downstream consequences in terms of productivity, quality, sales and ultimately profitability.

Bill of Materials

The Bill of Materials module allows you to define exactly what and how many parts, components or materials are required to complete a production run. Basically, it’s a manufacturing recipe and instructions about what to use, how long it will take, and how much it will cost in order to produce your product and is a critical component in the manufacturing process.

Greentree makes this an easy-to-manage process; once the criteria is established the forecast is automatically generated for you.

Quality Control

Have you ever had to return an item to the manufacturer or retail outlet because it was faulty, damaged or outright broken? Irritating isn’t it? Most of us have had to do this at least once in our lives and the nuisance value of the whole process can’t be understated. Testing for quality assurance is an afterthought for some businesses or not part of the manufacturing process at all for others where the urgency to get products out the door takes precedence. The outcome becomes an exercise in false economics as the cost of having dissatisfied customers is considerable and over time will surely exceed the investment required for a robust Quality Control process.
