In the latest version of the CompuTec plugin, Manufacturing Order Wizard, we’ve added a large number of improvements to improve useability.
The Manufacturing Order Wizard is a CompuTec AppEngine plugin that allows you to create CompuTec ProcessForce Manufacturing Orders based on SAP Business One documents. This is particularly aimed at helping businesses who on the basis of a single e.g. Sales Order, have to generate multiple Manufacturing Orders that are for different levels of production.
You can find out more about the plugin in our previous blog post here.
Generating Manufacturing Orders based on a variety of documents.
Previously, Manufacturing Orders could be generated based on Sales Orders. Now it is possible to use Manufacturing Orders, MRP Recommendations, Forecasts and Sales quotations as the base document as well. Each option has its own set of filters to help you find the document(s) you want to use quickly.
MRP Recommendations as sources
If Manufacturing Orders are generated using MRP Order Recommendations as the source, Child Manufacturing Orders will be selected automatically.
The Manufacturing Order Wizard will also update the open quantity and statuses.
Partially Completed Jobs
We have added a tab to the Job list where you can view partially completed jobs, i.e., Jobs for which some Manufacturing Orders have already been created, and other Manufacturing Orders are yet to be created.
New filtering and sorting options for the Jobs List
We’ve added two new columns to the job list – “Created on” and “Updated on” which will allow you to see when each job was created and updated respectively. This means that you can now also filter and sort the Job List based on date and time.
Document Number Series
If the Job does not have a document numbering series defined, the user’s default numbering series will be used automatically.
Manufacturing Order Creation
We’ve added a new column – “Classification” which can be edited by the user when selecting which Manufacturing Orders are to be created on the Demands Configuration and Adjustment and Scheduling tabs. This field can be used to create custom groups of Manufacturing Orders according to the business’s requirements.
If rescheduling is required to run a Job, the user will be notified of this before Manufacturing Orders are created. The user will also receive information about the available options and instructions on how to proceed in this situation.
