Manufacturing





  • Sales, purchasing, production, transfers and adjustments all have an impact on inventory, which itself is often maintained at different locations. ATRIX Inventory is a complete system that offers integrated, interactive management of all your inventories including physical stock room, in-transit, consigned and others.

    Dynamic Stock Status Because of the perpetual inventory activity within an enterprise, the ability to track its movement is critical. ATRIX Inventory manages and provides full visibility of all material movement within your warehouse or location, as well as between your locations, both domestic and international. Inventory details are tracked by individual bins, as well as through stocking, consigned and in-process locations. Balances are maintained by category for each plant or warehouse location, pr oviding dynamic stock status and historical visibility.

    Material Control Inventory hierarchy tables define the sequence of locations within a warehouse, in which to look for materials, while LIFO/FIFO capabilities provide the means for controlling the issuance of those materials.

    Inventory Reservation The ability to reserve inventory circumvents the need for a more rigorous commitment by allowing you to “soft allocate” material by lot, serial number or, for greater flexibility, by contract number.

    Dock-to-Stock Material Flow Upon reaching the receiving dock, incoming material should flow smoothly through receiving and inspection. During this “dock-to-stock” process, you need visibility of the material’s status, its current location and its final destination. With Inventory, you can preset and automatically direct movement through the required steps and locations with a material routing.

    Automatic Unit-of-Measure Conversion For each item, Inventory lets you establish various units of measure such as buying, stocking and selling. When material is moved, the system automatically adjusts the quantities for the respective unit of measure.
    For example, you may buy material in rolls and stock it in feet. You can build and stock products for inventory as individual units or sell them in packages. This feature lets you conduct business with suppliers and customers on their terms while maintaining inventory on yours.

    • ATRIX production is the complete solution for managing all work orderrelated information and activities – from opening work orders and handling work-in- process transactions through coordinating and evolving your production lines.

      Flexible Work Orders Structure
      Work Orders gives you the flexibility you need to handle virtually any work order requirement effectively – whether you are building engineering prototypes, finished products and subassemblies, or managing an entire development project. The multiple line architecture allows you to schedule dates for multiple production runs or to build various combinations of items and/or value -added item components.

      Back flush Operations
      Optimal production operations often require discrete as well as repetitive manufacturing styles. Work Orders delivers the best of both worlds by allowing users to support a hybrid- manufacturing environment simultaneously, with capabilities for both discrete and repetitive back flushing.

      Complete Integration
      Work Orders is fully integrated with the rest of ATRIX modules to assist with the management of your discrete manufacturing processes. All financial transaction data is available for ATRIX General Ledger posting.

      Bills of Materials and Routings
      For each manufactured line item on a WO, the system provides a bill of materials (BOM) and routing. Work Orders also provides the ability to include configured items on a WO’s BOM. This gives you the opportunity to use existing product versions or to tailor product configurations online in response to current production conditions or unique customer requirements. You can make changes, for example, to accommodate substitutions based on material availability, production capacity, operational methods, tooling, and customer specifications. These unique records also provide the basis for order tracking, cost auditing, and the as-built product configuration control document.

      Work-in-Process visibility
      You always have instant and accurate visibility to your current investments in work-in-process inventory. Each work order provides an online valuation of the materi als used and value-added costs. The total value of completed items is tracked for easy comparison to the planned work order costs and accumulated detail costs. Labor and machine efficiency data is generated and all transaction activity is tracked and calculated for financial posting and reporting.

    • To remain competitive, you must keep a tight rein on product and service costs. ATRIX costing allows you to do just that. Costing gives you the ability to develop, monitor and manage your product and service costs.

      Improved Cost Management
      As product and service design change, operational processes improve, and new suppliers are found, you must be able to determine the cost impacts quickly and accurately. You need to know what actions should be taken to correct problems and when to adjust prices for profitability or market share. Costing is designed to help you accomplish this, regardless of the size of your operation.

      Life Cycle Costing
      Costing meets the needs of businesses whose products and services are supplied through both internal resources a nd from outside suppliers. Seven cost types can be used to create, model, and track costs throughout a product or service ’s life cycle. These include both the standard, average and actual cost for each cost type, as well as previous, current and future tra nsactions.

      Elemental Costing
      Each item can have multiple user -defined cost elements. By accurately recognizing the true components of cost, these elements provide the critical visibility needed for effective cost control. Elements include fields for material, machine and labor run -time; set-up, fixed and variable overhead; outside processing, shrink / scrap, and freight.

      Operational Cost Visibility
      ATRIX item cost records are structures to show a hierarchical view of the costs for each item’s subassemblies, components and tasks. At each level of the item, the relationship of the materials used may be associated with the value-added costs of manufacturing or service delivery. This provides the means to value an item or service accurately as it progresses through the sequence of operations.
