Vero Software's latest release of its Javelin production control software gives manufacturers the ability to efficiently generate works orders for potentially thousands of similar parts without having to generate individual part, bill of materials and routing records, the company says.
When entering sales orders, users can now define and store parameters and options for their parts. Bill of materials and routing values can be defined by various formulae.
"Standard costing has always been in the Javelin system as the basis of estimating and costing," said general manager Paul Holmes. "But now quotes can accept parameters, generating the actual cost of the configured part. This customer driven improvement enhances the control of manufacturing and materials without having to generate individual part record data."
In addition, main maintenance programs for aspects such as costs, parts, suppliers, sales orders and works orders can now be configured by the customer, restricting access to certain users. The system now allows for the purchasing of tools, and the Tooling interface has been improved.
Pick List Print now has an option to print a user-defined crystal document. "We've also added a new program, Remap Crystal Reports, to the desktop menu. This allows users to change all Crystal Reports in a specific folder and point them at the current database, making it easier to move reports from one database to another," Holmes said.
