: FactoryMaster is a manufacturing software solution that can help organizations use the latest technology in the planning and day-to-day operation of commercial and production processes, covering all aspects of the business in one package.With knowlege in many divisions of manufacturing, FactoryMaster has built a complete modular system that addresses the issues facing manufacturing organizations in today's marketplace. As FactoryMaster adds new functionality requested by customers to the existing package, it has the advantage of offering one package to all customers, as well as an upgrade path for customers who choose to take maintenance and support.For the aerospace industry, FactoryMaster provides interfaces to most of the major aerospace players (including Exostar, Rolls Royce, and Airbus). These interfaces allow the solution to take direct feeds of sales order schedules and, within minutes, run a material resources planning (MRP) system to forecast and plan all materials and assembly requirements to fulfill these orders. This can provide an immediate response to new orders, and helps ensure that users can get an instant view of where issues concerning delivery timescales may occur. The solution also provides materials traceability, which helps give customers confidence that they can identify the source for any product they sell.For the automotive industry, FactoryMaster has built-in materials traceability so users can instantly see what went into each part and where it came from. This is essential for any organization that wishes to offer a quality service for its products. The system also has interfaces that allow data feeds into and out of the system, which eliminates re-keying and also speeds up the time needed to get information processed. Customers can then use these data feeds to do just-in-time production on daily orders. FactoryMaster has built-in control mechanisms that allow a quality plan to be implemented and tracked. An example of this is the drawing change control mechanism. All drawings are tracked by version numbers and so if a drawing changes, the user can instantly see the impact it may have on all aspects of the system, from quotes to work in progress. By allowing FactoryMaster users to track customer part numbers as well as their own internal part numbers, Factorymaster can instantly react to part number changes without impacting the work that is in progress. FactoryMaster also offers functionality for electronics manufacturers. The system allows large bills of material (BOMs), as well as sub-assemblies as part of this. This can allow flexibility in the way systems are constructed, with the use of third-party supplier parts being added into the bills of material. There are also functionalities that allow users to add extra information into the BOMs, such as circuit references. Traceability of the components is also an integral aspect, which gives an ideal trace for warranty claims and supplier rejects. With superior stock control using minimum or maximum stock levels, customers can have confidence that components will always be available. To back this up, the solution provides the MRP capability that can give users recommendations about what needs to be ordered and when it needs to be ordered, to fulfil any outstanding requirements.
