We’ve created the Ochiba OPTIONS Engineer to Order SAP Business One add-on especially for precision engineering companies. It is sure to make your life much easier if you make components to meet customer needs or specifications.
Usually, ERP systems like SAP Business One need part codes to make them work. However, our Engineer to Order add-on is different. It allows you to create estimates without generating new item codes or Bill of Materials (BOMs) for individual parts. So, you can quickly create quotes from a single screen. And then estimates for existing parts and BOMs can be used and modified, or brand new details can be entered.
The Ochiba OPTIONS Engineer to Order SAP Business One add-on is an extension to the OPTIONS Extended Production module.
When you use them together they allow you to fully define a finished product. So, you can include everything right down to the parts, materials, labour, resources and tooling needed to create a multi-level BOM.
Not only will OPTIONS Engineer to Order let you define materials and labour, but it will also let you include subcontract details. Plus, it you need new items, the information used in the estimate will automatically create item codes and BOMs in SAP Business One. Information and BOMs are only created or updated in SAP Business One once you confirm it has become an order. Therefore, items and BOMs are kept as clean as possible in SAP B1.
The Ochiba OPTIONS Engineer to Order add on will give your a handy summary line for each part of the estimate. As well as for the quote as a whole, so you’ll know exactly what is needed for each step. Plus, you’ll also have a handy cost breakdown of in-house work, parts, materials, subcontract and tooling.
You can also create sub-contract processes to work with the Ochiba Options Extended Production module. This will show you all the subcontract costs alongside the parts and materials. Then, once a sales order has been accepted, you can simply raise everything needed for the order.
