TrulinX’s Work Order Management Module Gives You Better Control Over Production
Going beyond the normal software vendor, Tribute works directly with our customers to create the tools you need to succeed in today’s marketplace. Our flexible Work Order Management software will help you with the following business requirements:
- Manage and track labor and burden
- Secure accurate costs to maximize gross margins
- Separate fabrication orders from regular distribution orders and manage them effectively
Software Tools for Fabrications & Assemblies:
Easy & Flexible Bill of Materials Software
The TrulinX fabrication feature has an easy and flexible Bill of Materials interface that allows the user to ‘drag and drop’ components. Subassemblies can be created as a ‘Smart Part’ in TrulinX and the WOM Module provides for the use of permanent structures, Smart Part, and on-the-fly structures at any level of the bill. You can also source, expedite and route all within the same screen. Although a work order is created for every Bill of Materials, when no fabrication is needed, the TrulinX WOM Module does not require you to do any extra work. TrulinX handles it like any other part – no complicated run-arounds for you!
With the TrulinX WOM feature, you can choose who is going to complete a BOM or any subassembly within that BOM structure from a variety of options: the assembly could be internal, another location could build the entire assembly or one or more subassemblies, or an outside vendor could build the whole assembly or one or more subassemblies. You can then route an assembly from one source to another easily. You will also control the final destination of the completed assembly with shipping papers generated to help warehouse personnel and outside vendors route products correctly.
Work Orders Can Be Created Independently
The TrulinX WOM feature is designed so that the work order can be entered directly from the sales order or it can be created separately and then later attached to the sales order. This is helpful in cases where repairs or estimates need to be applied before the job becomes an order. Items do not have to exist in order to be entered on a work order, which will make life much easier for your customer service reps!
Work in Process Inventory
The TrulinX WOM feature allows you to designate an assembly as a fabrication, which will move components to ‘work in process’ inventory while the assembly is being completed. Numerous easy and flexible options are provided for the movement of components. Components can be easily moved from one job to another; components purchased specifically for one job can be routed directly to that job when received. Reports and inquiries are available to list all your work in process and to expedite for a particular job whenever desired.
Application of Labor & Burden
The TrulinX WOM feature allows you to enter estimates of both labor and burden if desired. If estimates are entered, they are used to help determine the cost when jobs are partially completed. The actual costs applied are also tracked throughout the process. TrulinX will keep track of inventory items used as well as costs by category. Users may have as many labor and burden lines as they desire and the labor and burden will be accumulated for each subassembly as well as for the entire job.
Comparison of Actual & Estimated Costs
The TrulinX WOM feature will keep track of estimates for components, labor, and burden. As actual costs are applied, the cost of the job will be adjusted. When the job is complete, the costs will be reconciled and a comparison will be available at the subassembly and assembly levels of the job.
