This application is used to manage production. You will find here the creation and management of BOMs, routings and workload items. Bills of material have an unlimited tree structure. You will be able to create your production orders, manufacturing orders and plan your production. The application manages finite and infinite capacity planning. The production application works with the inventory management application. The requirements calculation allows you to generate production orders by taking into account the current stock situation, forecasts, and current and future orders. Component reservation and future stock planning are carried out at production order planning, and the use of components and stock movements corresponding to finished products and scrap are carried out at production order execution. The management of tracking numbers is possible from the production stage, and is managed manually or automatically.

  • Keywords :
    • Nomenclature: in production, the nomenclature is the document that describes the list of all the ingredients or components used in the composition of a product, as well as the quantities of each component required to obtain 1 unit of the product. The structure of a BOM can be more complex when its composition groups together different levels of semi-finished products, each of which can be described by a particular sub-nomenclature.
    • Range: a range describes all the operations required to manufacture products (finished or semi-finished). Each operation in a routing is associated with a load item.
    • Load position: a load position can be made up of machines, human resources or both. The average duration of operations and costs are indicated.
    • Production order: A production order is used to group several production orders together.
    • CBN: The net requirements calculation allows you to generate purchase and/or production proposals based on the current stock situation, open orders, production requirements and established forecasts, which you can decide whether or not to approve.
    • Scrap: the production process can generate residual products, which are considered as scrap. You have the option of taking this scrap into account, thus generating a stock movement at the end of production to remove the scrap.
  • Products: Displays only products whose method of supply is “Produce” and “Buy and Produce”.
  • Ranges: Displays the ranges and allows you to create new ones.
  • Bills of material: Displays bills of material and allows you to create new ones.
  • Production orders: Displays production orders and allows you to create new ones. A manufacturing order can contain several production orders.
  • Production orders: Displays production orders and allows you to create new ones.
  • Manufacturing Operations: Displays all production operations, regardless of their status.
  • Planned operations : Displays the schedule of planned operations.
  • Actual operations: Displays the schedule with the actual dates on which the production operations were performed.
  • Load per machine: Displays in graphical form the forecast loads per machine.
  • Material requirement: Allows to generate the component requirements to carry out the OF.
  • Reports :
    • Production: Reports on production from a global perspective.
    • User: Reports on production per user.
  • Configurations : Load stations: Displays the different resources required for production (types of load stations Man and machine) and allows to create new ones / Machines: Displays the machines used during production and allows to create new ones and configure them / Machine types: Displays the types of machines / Cost groups: Allows to create cost groups (manufacturing costs, indirect costs…​). / Standing production orders: Allows you to create OFs in order to enter activities that are not directly related to production (e.g. medical examination, meeting, etc.).) / Configurators : Configurator model : Allows to display and define configurator models : Configurators : Displays the generated configurators and gives the possibility to create them manually, BOM Configurator : Displays the BOM configurators, Range Configurator : Displays the range configurators, Phase Configurator : Displays the phase configurators / Cancel reasons : Allows to create reasons for cancellation of OF.

The products

Configuring a product

Production > Products

You must enter a code, a name and a product type. You can specify a product version number and a storage unit. The Purchase/Cost tab allows you to manage the cost and purchase costs if necessary. It is possible to include this product in the cost accounting process (checkbox in the accounting tab). A tracking number can be configured in the dedicated tab. The packing tab will allow you to define the elements necessary for packing and transporting this product. You can associate a default BOM to your product on the production information tab. You can insert the photo of your product and associate a barcode with it provided you have enabled the option in the application configs.


You can generate a production order directly from a product sheet, Production Information tab, by clicking on the “Create production order” button


The type of valuation (manual, PMP, last purchase price,…) is to be defined in the cost type field.
