It’s a Complex World… and getting more so every day

To thrive and grow, a manufacturer must be responsive to every increasing customer demand for product variety and sophistication. Global consulting firm Accenture confirms that complexity is here to stay in a report* that warns: “Problems can occur, however, when companies lose control of product complexity, which in today’s fast-moving, global, competitive environment has become an all-too-common occurrence.”

For manufacturers, control means having accurate information and making good decisions. Manufacture stock, custom or batch products most likely have a proliferation of similar yet distinct products and need more control of the product lifecycle management.

Complete and Flexible Bill of Material and Routing

The JAMS for Acumatica Bill of Material/Routing module manages production specifications that form the framework for planning and operations throughout the JAMS system.

  • Multi-level bill of material and routings
  • Engineering and financial views of the product structure
  • Multiple revisions – current, past and future versions of the product with flexible date-driven capabilities
  • Time-phased purchasing and delivery of materials to manage inventories, costs, and manufacturing processes
  • Material, subassemblies, work instructions, tools and overhead costs directly connected to an operation to support time-phased release of materials
  • Routings support detailed work instructions
  • Item Reference Designators reflect multiple drawing reference points
  • Support for phantom items; non-stocked item or subassembly groups for planning convenience and optional display in production order detail

Engineering Change Control for Accurate Records

Track pending changes. Coordinate with purchasing, production and inventory. Manage version control and updates to bills of material and routings. Control effectivity dates that specify when changes take effect. Engineering Change Control is an essential tool for keeping control of data in a rapidly changing world.

Product Costing Provides the Financial View

Product costing must be integral to engineering and operations for accuracy and validity. Raw materials, purchased items, consumable supplies, labor, plus fixed and variable production overhead – all are tracked in the Acumatica BOM and Routing module, allowing you to take advantage of revision management for the most accurate cost data.

Acumatica also supports:

  • Multiple costing methods (standard, average and actual)
  • Unlimited fixed and variable overhead costs, as well as tooling costs
  • Single level or multi-level BOM cost roll
