Bill of Materials
The Manufacturing or Subcontract Assemblies are identified within Bill of Material Maintenance. Each Component contains a separate record. Standard information associating the component to the assembly can be kept on the Rootstock Bill of Material. Required information, such as the quantity per assembly and add and delete effectivity data, is maintained on each component link. Required Add and Delete effectivity information includes status and date with optional information, including revision and engineering change order. Additional capabilities include a scrap factor, ‘issue to’ work centers on the Shop Floor, and lead time offset for planning purposes. Bills of Material are also used in a Standard Cost Rollup to compute the material cost and the subcontract material cost of the purchased (or subcontract purchased) item.
Rootstock Manufacturing Cost Control provides extensive cost accounting capabilities required by companies that have a need to closely monitor and control manufacturing costs. The user may elect to use either standard costing or moving average costing method for valuing inventory and computing cost of goods sold.
“The ability to use Configure-Price-Quote and convert a quote into a Sales Order / Work Order / related Purchase Orders is fantastic.”
– Doug L., current Rootstock Customer
Engineering Change Management
Engineering Change Control is the process that ‘manages’ the related items’ revisions that are associated with an Engineering Change Order. Revision Control denotes the change, and Engineering Change Control denotes the process that manages the revisions to the bill of material and the routings. Since the management of item revisions can be accomplished by the Engineering Change Control process, Engineering Change Control therefore enforces discipline and management control over modifications to bill of materials and shop floor routings, based on revision control.
Product Lifecycle Management
Rootstock Product Lifecycle Management Integration, using common Rootstock APIs and file downloads, automates the process of transferring current product configuration data from a company’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system to Rootstock, avoiding manual entry errors and ensuring that manufacturing configuration data is always up to date and fully synchronized.
