Job Costing & Job Management

Exceptional Job Shop Costing & Management



Make-to-order, engineer-to-order and repair-to-order job shops need to react quickly on job enquiries, perform repair  assessments or engineer designs that determine their job costing estimations. Often these job shops rely on Excel tools whose data is not integrated to the ERP system. What is required is a job production centric ERP that provides an integrated solution offering pre-workshop process workflow as well as on the shop-floor workflow (routing and tracking of the machine activities)

When You Need It?

  • Are your inconsistent lead times (from order to delivery) affecting your delivery date promises?
  • Are you using outdated estimation methods such as Excel, with no integrated job production software?
  • Are the variable production runs, variable BOMs and poor supplier delivery promises playing havoc with your production promises to your clients?
  • Do you have control over your procurement so that the job the drives the procurement – ensuring JIT materials delivery and control?
  • Are your job gross-margins under threat?

What We Deliver?

  • Our jobPRO job production solutions are designed specifically for the job shop.
  • Pre-shop-floor process workflow ensures smooth communication between the various departments (i.e. job receiving, stripping, estimation, quote preparation, quote authorization, order acceptance).
  • Rapid estimation is facilitated by ‘Search-&-Import’ on historic quotes, historic jobs and job templates.
  • Job activity assessment is done on the shop-floor allowing machine operations, time estimates and stock enquiries to be integrated with the ERP.
  • Job costing saves job estimates for comparison to job production ‘actuals’.
  • Shop-floor machine and manual operations can be ‘routed’ by the shop-floor foreman and tracked.
  • Operators have access to their job queue and activities (required operations).

How It Benefits You?

  • Job production pre-shop-floor workflow ensures reduced lead time from enquiries to order taking.
  • Procurement driven by the job ensures your material is timeously ordered and suppliers meet required dates.
