Optimize your Manufacturing Software

and Become more efficient with

Beas Manufacturing

SAP Business One

With the right manufacturing software, you can improve production

efficiency & increase productivity

When you choose the right manufacturing software you gain a better insight into your Manufacturing business, that can help you understand the product margins easier. You will be able to capture, assign and compare actual and standard costs for all finished products. The ability to capture true costs at batch level provides granular cost visibility, which is key to success. This includes not only material costs, but labor, machine and overhead costs as well, and it covers the additional need to include the cost of co-products, by-products and the impact of waste.


But to achieve this, you must ensure all your data is integrated into your manufacturing software. By using Data Integration Hub, it is possible to automate the complex and time-consuming process of entering BOM data and calculating its accurate cost. With this integration in place, a process that would usually take your highest-paid engineering staff a week to complete now only takes a few minutes.


Your resources need to be optimized to maximize production output, reduce changeover and setups, while meeting customer demand. With a manufacturing software capacity planning, initial delivery dates can be calculated via finite backward scheduling. When combined with APS, both material availability and capacity can be scheduled together to calculate a viable delivery date, enabling the planning of large numbers of short-run production orders.

Real-Time Visibility

Choose a manufacturing software that includes a wide variety of functions to enable you to keep track of every relevant aspect in your production planning. For example, if the expiration of raw materials is an issue, manufacturing software offers a report that identifies all the lots that are due to expire within a certain number of days. In addition, planned downtime can be managed on the resource maintenance calendar, and production schedule can be automatically moved from a stopped resource to an active resource.


Furthermore, with manufacturing software solution you can easily build dashboards and define KPIs that deliver real-time information, giving you full visibility of your business so you can adapt quickly and maintain your competitive edge in the market. Data is stored centrally and online, not in offline spreadsheets, thus eliminating the manual entry of data into reporting tools and increasing accuracy.
