Bill of Materials

Whether you are a manufacturer or a value added reseller, The Next Level Bill of Materials Module will help you manage your production activities and accurately reflect their impact on inventory and accounting. The system automatically reduces raw material, builds up finished goods, accounts for labor and waste, and calculates the related General Ledger journal entries.

Each Bill of Material has a 15 character name and a complete description. A bill can contain one or more assemblies and one or more components:

"Assembles" are inventory items being produced.

"Components" are used in the production of the associated assemblies and may be an inventory item, a labor account, or another bill of material.

Bills can be added, changed, looked up and listed. They can be deleted or copied to a new bill. Bills may be nested as many as 20 levels deep, i.e., used in defining another bill's components. When a Bill of Material is put into production, a unit multiplier for that bill is given and a production work order is generated. In the process of generating that work order, the system automatically (on-the-fly) commits inventory items that are raw materials or subassemblies and puts on order inventory items that are finished products.

Production Work Orders can then be printed and sent to the "shop Floor". After the Production Work Orders are carried out, the actual production values can be entered and the system will automatically make the necessary adjustments to the "commits" raw materials and subassemblies and the "on order" finished goods. Production transfers can then be carried out relieving the "committed" raw materials and subassemblies and adding the "on order" quantities to the finished inventory.

Reports can be printed out comparing Production Work Order actual against original Bill of Materials' "theoretical" and adjustments can then be made to the original Bill of Materials. As an aid in production and material requirements planning, the Material Requirements vs. Available Report will net out your production plans against all current sales orders and purchase orders, providing valuable information for use in ordering and scheduling.

The Bill of Materials supports The Next Level multiple warehouses, and average unit costing method. It is completely integrated with all modules in The Next Level Software Series in design, documentation, reporting, security and its user interface.
