Production Management

We use state of the art production management software to ensure the smooth flow of work from start to finish. This is carried out on the Expdyte software platform for faster, easier, better control of our business.

The software includes a range of modules as detailed below.

Estimates/Quotations

Estimates and quotations can be generated quickly and either printed or send as pdf files. The system then keeps them for future reference.

Purchasing

The purchasing module allows us to manage our suppliers and raise a purchase order for a seller, indicating types, quantities, and agreed prices for products or services to be provided under a single framework which in turn makes our business more efficient and our service to our customers more effective.

Works/Sales Orders

The system allows for the raising of works and sales orders which allow for internal audit control and processing to be undertaken and can contain several purchase orders which are integrated by the software as required. The sales order can then be converted into a works order to show that work is about to begin. This process allows for the smooth processing of jobs and a better service to our customers.

Process Layouts

The process layout feature allows us to manage the layout of our shop floor as required for both space planning and grouping of similar production areas. This allows us to operate a flexible layout, eliminate bottlenecks, facilitate communication and interaction between workers, workers and supervisors and provide a visual control of activities. In turn this allows for us to plan for new plant and to adjust our capacity to meet customer requirements.

Component Stocks

The component stock feature allows us to manage parts for assembly, kitting and kanban purposes as well as support for timed call offs and allows for a more efficient service with ontime and just in time delivery schedules.

Material Stocks

The material stocks option allows for control of materials and forward planning, supports quote generation and allows for more efficient material use and a reduction in waste.

Goods Received Notes

A Goods Received Note is produced when goods are received into the factory and will include inspection where required to check against invoices before payment. This process allows for tighter and smoother management.

Capacity Requirements

The capacity requirements module allows us to forward plan capacity to meet future production requirements. As a small company this is not critical although does offer some advantage when considering strategic investment in new plant and machinery.

Deliveries

The software allows for the generation of delivery notes, document that are sent out with a shipment of goods that lists the description, grade, and quantity of the items delivered. A copy of the delivery note, signed by the buyer or consignee, is returned to the seller or consignor as a proof of delivery. This allows for a formal transfer of goods.

Invoicing

The invoicing component is one of the most powerful and significant features of the software and allows us to generate accurate and timely invoicing to be sent by post or email as required.

Credit Notes

A popular feature with many of our customers are the credit Notes which detail products, quantities and agreed prices for products or services the seller provided the buyer, but the buyer returned or did not receive.
