Удобният потребителски интерфейс
The convenient user interface of the Product Configurator allows you to create flexible models by inputting only the parameters of the device. Thus you can customize products according to customer needs.
Once a client sends you the features of a desired product, it can immediately be incorporated into the production schedule so you can calculate the delivery date and estimated value and price.
Improved communication between the Sales and the Manufacturing Department
Automatic creation of manufacturing technologies
Once the articles are configured according to customer requirements, the system automatically creates a unique specification and manufacturing technology.
The result is a reduction in the physical work in production planning and ensuring the manufacturing process in creating new products. Moreover, calculations are performed automatically according to current price lists.
If there is repetition of the article, the ERP system allows you to easily make partial amendments of specifications and technological recipes. The whole process customer order-offer-manufacturing-shipment of finished products is easily controlled all the time, and the interface provides information on implementation.
Integration with Module Material Planning
The tight integration of the Product Configurator with the Material Planning module enables users of EnterpriseOne to receive information about possible delivery dates of raw materials within the promised turnaround time of each order, as well as signals for possible delays.
You can track changes in manufacturing technologies directly from the module. The technology is established during product configuration and any changes in parameters are immediately taken into account. This avoids the manual recovery of hundreds of unique features.
