Production Order Changes

Manufacture to prior or alternate bill of material revisions, substituting operations and materials as desired. For project-centric manufacturers, project accounting integration creates production orders from project tasks, updates projects with manufacturing information, and aggregates cost tracking over multiple production runs so businesses can determine profitability for large jobs and contracts.

Lot and Serial Tracking

Maintain full lot and serial traceability throughout the lifecycle of the item. Capture lot and serial numbers at purchase receipt, inventory issues, and shop activity transactions.

Critical Materials

View production order shortages. Create purchase orders and production orders for the parts that are short from a single screen.

Labor Tracking

Capture direct production labor to production orders by employee. Enter and track non-production time using indirect codes.

Material Tracking

Issue stock and non-stock materials and parts to a production order. Capture lot and serial numbers on controlled items.

Backflushing Labor and Material

Eliminate reporting by backflushing labor or material when reporting the production quantity completed, useful when a company only wishes to record the production quantity.

Barcode Integration

Use Acumatica’s mobile app on phones and tablets to scan barcode data to record labor and material transactions as well as warehouse management transactions including issues, receipts, cycle counting, and physical inventory.

Event Audit Trail

Trace all production activities (events) against a production order including description, date and time, and the ID of the user.
