elastic business MANUFACTURING


Production management

elastic business MANUFACTURING covers the entire production cycle of enterprises, from the definition of facilities, lines, sections and operations; through the creation of the Master Plan of production and the calculation of total or partial needs, both regarding buying and production (cutting of materials and operations); to the generation, monitoring and release of production orders.

The production is managed integrally, although it is composed of different units. In order to do this, it is possible to configure different programming groups formed by companies, factories and warehouses, with a high level of detail.


The main advantage of elastic business MANUFACTURING lies in the automatic calculation of purchasing and production needs. Orders incorporated into each program lead to a Master Plan of production, in which the items that will be created are defined. The solution automatically creates the necessary cuts to produce these items in real time, depending on the configuration of parameters. In any case, schedules are very flexible and can be incorporated at any time in hot production orders.

With regard to monitoring the production, it is possible to validate quality tests or keep track of the manufacturing process from the facilities themselves, because the workers have a specific screen in which they directly fill in their working time.

elastic business MANUFACTURING is perfectly integratable with the rest of elastic business´ ERP functionalities (purchasing, sales, finance, warehouse, etc), so it is the perfect tool for integrated and effective management. At the same time, is an solution that can be easily integrated with other applications developed by third parties, thanks to streamlined communication with their databases, web services, API's, etc.


elastic business MANUFACTURING features

  1. Parametric definition of the items to be manufactured
    • Creating items based on mandatory or optional parameters.
    • Automatic creation of cuts of materials and operations based on parameters.
    • Possibility to add formulas for the creation of cuts.
  2. Simplification when launching the Master Plan and calculation of needs
    • Calculation of Master Plan based on orders or based on inventory.
    • Possibility of changing the production version in the programming.
    • When calculating the necessary materials, items which are not involved in the production process but have been set as safety stock are taken into account.
  3. Flexibility when tracking through manufacturing orders
    • Manufacturing, marking as complete and launching.
    • Possibility of attributing consumption of several manufacturing orders together.
    • Realize partial fabrications.
    • Attribute unplanned consumptions and fabrications.
    • Create hot orders and reassign partial fabrications based on these orders.
    • Tracking and comparing theoretical and actual manufacturing costs.
    • Performing of order tracking at location. Attribution of setup time and variable time. Attribution of consumed materials and validation of batches.
  4. Tracking of cargo and capacity of the system
    • Comparison of theoretical and actual costs of the program as well as of all manufacturing orders.
  5. Integration with quality and traceability
    • Creating and configuring quality tests and manufacturing records based on parameters.
    • Control from the orders to the analyzed/registered parameters.
    • Interaction with the quarantined store. Release from quarantine if the values ​​are correct.
