You can start with simple Management of Production Orders and later add Warehouse Management and support for various places of collecting raw materials in the technology. There is also a dedicated terminal for Production Registration immediately after implementing a module for the Maintenance Department. Yes – we have it all. Discover the functionality of our qcadoo MES.
With qcadoo MES you can manage your manufacturing orders efficiently. Having an insight into their costs, you can easily verify their profitability. By controlling and planning the time-consumption of orders, you are able to propose reliable lead times to your customer. Furthermore, you can select appropriate technologies while checking whether there are no shortages of any raw materials in your warehouse. You will always know what, when and how much needs to be produced.
qcadoo MES enables to have full control of all raw materials required to execute your production orders. It will precisely determine which raw materials you need and their quantity, as well as quickly check the stock and the planned supplies.
With qcadoo MES you have full control over your supplies. When you enter a new vendor to the system, you can assign particular products to it, which are ordered from that vendor. You can create RFQs for vendors, negotiate supplies and control deliveries that are in progress. This guarantees that you will not be left surprised without an important raw material.
Subcontracting your services
If a part of your production is commissioned to subcontractors, you know very well how much time this process can consume. Arranging prices, providing technical documentation, issuing raw materials, quality control of intermediate products – these are the situations which occur frequently on a daily basis. qcadoo MES will support you in every such activity, allowing you to better manage subcontracted production while providing you with full transparency of this process.
Even the best-managed production companies, with perfectly matched quality control systems can experience a situation where a raw material will have a defect. In such a case it is important to detect it quickly and check in which products it was used. The Genealogy feature of qcadoo MES comes in handy here.
Plan manufacturing orders
We will help you plan your production orders taking into account the technology, time-consumption of the operation, performance of machines, production lines, employee shift calendar, availability of raw materials, retooling and many others. Phew, there are so many of them!
One of the key and simple features of qcadoo MES is the possibility of creating various calculations which will help you in evaluating the profitability of orders and optimising production costs. You no longer have to create advanced spreadsheets to quickly calculate time-consumption or costs of an order – our software will do that for you.
The actual knowledge of what happens in your production will allow you to see which orders bring you profit and which of them generate a loss. Information registered in the production area, as well as the data obtained from warehouse documentation, will enable you to check the current situation precisely.
Registration of the production progress will give you the possibility of gathering the actual events directly in the production area. This will enable to monitor the production progress in real time, register on-going production and complete accounts of the actual costs.
The technology of qcadoo MES is a combination of a bill of materials (BOM) with the production (process) schedule. It combines a detailed list of all raw materials required to manufacture a given product and all tasks which should be performed so that the project is successful.
Warehouse management in qcadoo MES will give you full control over the warehouse stock, supplies and shortages of products which should be restocked. You will create warehouses and define appropriate methods of raw material distribution. Your warehouse documentation will be put in order, mainly through an automated process. You will easily integrate the above data with an internal system used by your company.
