Understanding Engineering Change Control, Advanced Bill of Materials, and Outsourced Manufacturing in Your ERP
The modern manufacturing process requires your organization to be nimble and adapt quickly to necessary changes. Your ERP can give you the framework and ability to manage, track, audit, and approve our Bill of Materials throughout their lifecycle.
This webinar will show you how NetSuite supports the engineering process including:
* Creating and managing an Advanced Bill of Materials
* Processing an Engineering Change Order
* Discussion and demonstration of Contract Manufacturing Automation
About NetSuite Outsourced Manufacturing, Engineering Change Control, and Advanced Bill of Materials
Modern manufacturers come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, many manufacturers no longer physically manufacture themselves, instead choosing to focus on designing an awesome product and leaving the dirty work up to someone else. But regardless of who does the manufacturing and where it is done, having the ability to create and communicate an accurate and flexible bill of materials (BOM) is an important foundational element of the product lifecycle.
Additionally, the Engineering Change Order allows users to capture requested changes, document and share them with all interested parties for approval and then automatically implement them once approved. When used in conjunction with the Quality and Case management features, NetSuite provides complete control over the lifecycle of your products—ensuring that you always plan, manufacture and deliver the current and correct designs.
Lastly, as many manufacturers are outsourcing some manufacturing operations as part of their business model, the need to track this process within ERP has become critical. NetSuite’s Outsourced Manufacturing enables you to purchase outsourced assembly production from vendors. This helps you better manage your subcontracted manufacturing processes.
