CAD/CAM/CAE software provider Vero Software has released Javelin 2012r2 production control software, which includes enhancements that can help manufacturers producing one-off items.
"Javelin's contract control function now has the ability to set up a generic template holding a unique line item for bespoke parts," said software development manager Steve Burrows. "That same code, under an option called 'Unique,' can be constantly reused, meaning you don't end up with thousands of redundant part numbers cluttering up the database. It allows effective control under just one generic part number."
The solution includes a new EDI export function, so that customers can export invoices into an EDI format so their own customers can read it and effectively pay them against it. It uses Crystal Reporting templates, so the export can be defined to whatever format the customer requires. Invoices are batched for accurate regeneration and historic enquiries.
Enhancements include the estimating module using relevant price breaks from price books. Serial numbers can be entered rapidly using a bar code scanner, and goods received note labels have been customized with Crystal templates, providing a different label for each type of purchase order.
