Acumatica's embedded manufacturing solution for BOM/Routing, MRP and Production Management
JAAS Advanced Manufacturing Software (JAMS) for Acumatica is designed and built on the Acumatica Cloud ERP platform by JAAS Systems. JAAS Systems has nearly two decades of experience developing feature-rich manufacturing systems.
JAMS is built within the Acumatica framework and integrates seamlessly with Acumatica’s Financial, Distribution Management, Customer Management, and Project Accounting Suites.

At the core of the JAMS for Acumatica solution, the Bill of Material (BOM)/Routing module maintains production specifications, the framework for planning, operations and costing.
- Multi-level BOM/Routing — engineering and costed views of the product structure
- Revision Control — Date-oriented revision history allows multiple revisions
- Production Steps — detailed work instructions with standard note capability
- Phantoms — for structuring convenience
- Reference Designators — reflect multiple reference points on a drawing
- Flexible Copy BOM — can be used as an alternate BOM/Routing or to create a different yet similar item
- Multiple Costing Methods — average, standard and actual costing methods; tooling costs, unlimited fixed and variable overhead costs
- BOM Cost Roll — standard costing can update pending standard cost for each item in inventory
The JAMS for Acumatica MRP module enables an organization to satisfy customer requirements while maintaining optimal inventory levels.
- MRP Display — view all supply and demand from one centralized location; create production and purchase orders directly from this screen
- MRP Exception Messages — identify late orders and displays any transfers available from another warehouse or site
- Master Production Schedul — manually controlled by the planner
- Sales Forecasts — generated from sales history and/or entered manually
- Bucketless System — maintains full plan detail while allowing user-defined time buckets
Sophisticated production management for make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order, configure-to-order, project centric, job shop, batch and repetitive manufacturing. Schedule production, track material and labor usage and cost, compare standard/planned with actual.
- Production Order Tracking — Captures the total manufacturing costs including material, labor, machine, tool, overhead, and outside processes
- Production Order Changes — supports prior or alternate BOMs, substitute operations and/or materials
- Scheduling — both forward and backward scheduling methods for flexibility
- Lot / Serial Tracking — Full lot and serial traceability throughout the lifecycle of the item
- Critical Materials — view order shortages; create Purchase Orders or Production Orders from a single screen
- Labor Tracking — non-production time can be entered using indirect codes
- Materials Tracking — issue stock and non-stock items and costs to an order
- Backflushing — the system allows for backflushing of labor and/or material; this is useful when a company only wishes to record the production quantity.
- Production Performance — Compare Standard/Planned with Actual labor, material, machine, tools, fixed and variable overheads
- Event Audit Trail — includes brief description, date, user ID
- Barcode Integration — for labor and material transactions, inventory movement, cycle counting, and physical inventory
The rules-based Product Configurator allows products to be configured in multiple ways on quotes, sales orders and/or production orders. It enhances the quality and accuracy in the manufacturing of complex products.
- Configure to Order – An item can be configured using predetermined features and options. The results of the configuration can carry forward to a production order.
- Capability – The system provides for multiple dimensional calculations and formulas in order to calculate the material requirements for the specific components for the configuration.
- Pricing – Based upon the features and/or options chosen, the system has multiple price roll-up capabilities to determine the actual unit price for that specific configured item.
- Flexible Copy Process – Providing the user an easy way to create a new configured order by simply copying or modifying an existing configured order or quote.
- Formula Validation – Validates formula calculation based upon minimum/maximum attribute values or quantities for selected features and options.
Users can calculate costs and prices for new or existing parts using material costs, work center rates, and overheads, among other data. The estimate can be either linked, or not, to a quote or an opportunity.
- Non-Inventory Items – Provides the capability to estimate items not currently in inventory. It also allows the user the opportunity to attach notes and files to the estimate.
- Create Inventory Items – Non-inventory items are easily converted to inventory stock items or non-stock items. Users can create inventory items and generate a Bill of Material from an estimate.
- Revision Control – Allows for multiple revisions of the same estimate, showing a history of the revisions and who created the revision: providing an accurate estimate for expected labor, material and overhead costs.
- Flexible Copy Process – Providing the user an easy way to create a new estimate by simply copying or modifying an existing estimate, Bill of Material or Production Order Bill of Material.
- Sales Integration – An estimate can be attached directly to, or against a sales order or an opportunity in Customer Management (CRM).
|Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)||Finite and infinite what-if planning capability; promise and scheduling employee and/or machine resources.|
|Project Manufacturing||Track all associated costs at a project level. Compare to a project budget. Production orders can be tied to a project task or produced to stock.|
|Engineering Change Control||Automates, controls, and organizes all change requests, plans, and actual changes to a Bill of Material with approvals throughout each step in the process.|
