Ochiba OPTIONS Enhanced Production add-on for SAP Business One

The Ochiba OPTIONS Enhanced Production add-on has been developed to enhance the manufacturing ERP side of SAP Business One. In fact, we’ve included a number of features that just aren’t available anywhere else.

Ochiba OPTIONS Production Features

Make to Order & Mixed Mode Manufacture

The Ochiba OPTIONS Production add-on gives you a complete view of every sales order. So you can see exactly what’s needed for each job right down to the components required.

Plus it will hightlight any make-to-order components so you can automatically create production orders for the materials you need to purchase. You’ll see which top level and sub assembly production orders to raise and generate them as either planned or released production orders.

With the Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) feature you’ll see which items need to be made-to-stock or in batches. Also, if the delivery date entered on the sales order isn’t achievable, a new date will be proposed.

The make to order option can really simplify the whole production process. Just by viewing the sales order you’ll have a list of all the associated parts that are still needed before the job can be completed.

Unlike standard SAP B1, the Ochiba OPTIONS Extended Production pack can handle the back-flushing of serial or batch controlled items.

Production Planning

With the system automatically using rough cut capacity planning, you can optimise your production schedule by comparing your plan to the work centre capacities. You can then back-schedule your production based on the planned work order completion dates.

Usually a rough cut schedule is managed on weekly view rather than a daily basis. However, this Production add-on will show you both the time used on an operation as well as the number of days needed. And when you define capacity against work centres, everything can be changed on a daily basis. Plus, you can link your employees holidays and non-available time to the system for a more accurate view on capacity.

You can move whole order lines, rather than each individual sub-assembly, to make re-planning at order level much quicker. You can even drill-down to sub-level operations thanks to how it highlights your loading and resources.

Furthermore, you can integrate SAP Business One with Compass10  APS (requires additional purchase) for more advanced planning and scheduling functions.

Shop Floor Data Collection (SFDC)

If you want to know exactly where jobs are on the shop floor then SFDC will help. With easy to use touch screens and barcode scanners the it will collect all the data you need to keep things moving. You’ll have:

  • Barcoded user IDs for security
  • Simple sign in & out attendance recording
  • Start operations
  • Complete operations
  • Pause operations
  • Complete jobs
  • Start & Stop indirect or non-productive work
  • Book materials to jobs
  • View work-to lists for departments

However, if you aren’t able to use SFDC terminals, the infomation from timesheets can be entered into SAP Business One manually.

And, if you don’t need to record time ‘per person’, but you still need to keep track of operations, then the work centre screens can help. They can be used as both a ‘work to list’ and a simple ‘tick to complete’ booking tool.

Sub-Contract Process Management

If you work with sub-contractors then this screen will make managing the relationship simple. You can raise a purchase order for a service, as well as free issue and deliver the required materials to be processed, and then receipt back the finished part when received.

Everything is taken care of in the background so all the relevant materials are down-dated and the parts are received into stock. It will even add costs to the job for material and subcontract services.

Engineer Change Request Management

If you need to make changes in the Bill of Material (BOM) process then this screen makes your life much easier. It will even let you up-issue a version and revision against the amended parts and BOMs if needed.

Furthermore, you can record the reasons for change, manage approvals, or up-issue assembly and sub assembly item versions or revisions based on the change to lower level components.
