Does your company uses standard and sub-assemblies to provide tailored products? If so, the Ochiba OPTIONS Configure to Order SAP Business One add-on is the perfect solution.
This module provides a flexible structure for you to specify product information. So, you can simply and easily select the correct items needed to build a product or system. By making use of questionnaires the Configure to Order add-on guides you through the product defining process. Therefore it makes sure only valid products or systems are being specified. Furthermore, you can even make sub-assembly Bill of Material (BOM) changes throughout the process if you need to.
The Configure to Order module will save you time because all the costing and selling price calculations are worked out instantly. It means you can configure a complex product or system, then adjust costs, sales prices and margins to meet any requirements as you go.
In addition to this, if your company deals with more project based manufacturing, the CTO screen can integrate with IA Project (additional purchase required). IA Project replicates the CTO screen and provides complete project costing in SAP Business One.
The Ochiba OPTIONS Configure to Order add-on for SAP Business One will enable you to produce an accurate quote instantly. What’s more, it will automatically include all the production BOMs and parts needed for the job.
If you have a completely new job to spec, the CTO screen have the flexibility to let you to create a bespoke product.
However, if the job is fairly standardised, you can save time by using pre-defined templates as a starting point. Or, for in-house manufactured products, you can also use a BOM structure created ‘on the fly’.
Through the definition process, you’ll find that the questionnaires display options based on your previous answers. Therefore, it ensures only the correct choices or available to be selected during the order entry template. The rules in the definition process mean you can only create valid item combinations.
You can create rules based on:
It will mean you can see every level of the selling and cost prices, as the roll up costs are applied throughout the structure. Plus, you can add both total order charges, and where volume units are being configured, the amortise charges to the item being sold.
Above all you can adjust the cost and selling prices on the quote, by supplier and item group, to give you quick generic pricing.
The handy grouping feature means that in project based systems, you can select groups of items for either delivery or production. And, as these groupings are created by the user they can be changed for each quote or project.
Once a quote is accepted, you can select the most appropriate workflow path based on the complexity of the job. This means you can control when the order is released.
Then when the workflow has reached a pre-determined stage, the ‘Finalise Order’ button can be used. This will create the parts and BOM’s you need for that job, as well as updating the sales order and closing the CTO quote.
You can then use the Sales Order / Production Order Creation function to create what’s needed for the sales order. Also, you don’t have to this for all levels of production. It’s possible to just create it for the first levels, and therefore allow for batch production of sub assemblies where needed.
