BizSight - Small Business Manufacturing Software

It is time for small manufacturers to enjoy the same benefits of larger ones, yet keeping the software simple!  Over the last several decades, you as a manufacturer limped along with software for your invoicing and financial side. However, never found the right, user-friendly, affordable software, that would help you manage your manufacturing operation. The available manufacturing products were complicated, required significant investment, and implementation effort. The generic entry level products could not help you with manufacturing. 

BizSight Manufacturing is designed around the small business, where a few do a lot, where the software can be quickly deployed, and the same easy to use software is available to accounting, customer service, purchasing, as well as manufacturing!  You can create estimates, create/convert work orders, print travelers and picklists to your floor, manage your inventory, track labor, plan material purchases (based on existing demand and supply in the system), track scrap/rejects, and even compare actual costs to plan.

Our browser-based product can be run on a single machine or on multiple machines over a network. It helps eliminate the multiple installs companies tend to have and allows users share information over a network across one of the browser (Internet Explorer, Fire Fox, Chrome, or Safari). You decide if you want to run this on your premise or in the cloud!

Create Work Orders 

Creating and managing work orders is the heart of managing your manufacturing process.  BizSight Manufacturing gives you the flexibility to create work orders from your items, sales orders, estimates, or from a material plan.

Work orders draw from a Bill of Resource that manages a combination of your bill of material (BOM) and operation steps.  A customizable traveler can be printed as documentation for the work order which includes a pick list for material and the operation steps that need to be performed with the necessary instruction.

Start and due dates can be scheduled using simple backward, forward, or manual scheduling accommodating your typical manufacturing lead times.  Planned material and labor activity is summarized on the work order providing a quick status. 

 

 

Define Bill of Resource

The Bill of Resource within BizSight Manufacturing is an extension of your inventory item and is the core to your manufacturing. Additional component material and operation sequence information used in the  manufacture of an item can be added here.  This information is a combination of a traditional bill of material (BOM) and routing that is typically defined to manufacture an item-all in one easy-to-define step. You can define and manage just material, operations, or both.  This gives a small business the flexibility to start by just managing material or expand this to both material and labor.

Report Production and Track WIP

Production activity is the recording of activity against a work order which allows for the tracking of material and labor. This also results in the adjustment of inventory quantities from material issues,receipts, and the corresponding journal entry in the accounting side.

Production activity is reported taking either a work order focused approach or using a traditional employee time sheet approach.  Both approaches adjust inventory quantities for material that may need to be issued or conversely, put away into inventory.

Production activity facilitates work-in-progress tracking as well as a detailed operational and cost analysis. 

 

Scraps and Rejects
 

Track Scraps and Rejects

In addition to material issues, scrap and reject quantities can be tracked.  As these scrap and reject quantities are reported, specific reason codes can be assigned to them.  Reports with this information allow you to identify problem areas that need to be addressed with the material and or the manufacturing process.

Material Planning

Material planning, at the simplest level, is the process of looking at the demand from your customers, evaluating what you have on-hand, factoring in your committed and planned replenishments, then evaluating your resulting inventory needs.  BizSight Manufacturing does just that and recommends when and how much to make or buy. 

Using our Convert Material Plan, the user can take these recommendations, make changes to them, override, consolidate, or ignore them.  The resulting quantities and orders can then be converted into purchase orders or work orders with just a few clicks.

 

 

Create Purchase Orders and Receipts

If you need to generate a purchase order to buy widgets or services in your business, BizSight can create these for you!  Once created, these can be emailed to your vendor confirming your order. Several customizable purchase order layouts are available to suit you needs!

If you are in the manufacturing industry, additional integration is available from our material planning side to automatically trigger purchase orders... with your approval.

Products or services ordered via these purchase orders can be received to update your inventories and affect your accounting.

Reports and Lists

There are nearly 20 different reports with drill-downs and the ease of adding or removing columns to be printed.  In addition to the drill-down to information, they give you the flexibility to export this information into Excel for further analysis and charting.
