§ Assembly verification

The BOM assembly and component verification process insures your accuracy.  The verify matches your assemblies with the warehouse current inventory. Optionally keep the verified and exploded component database for access via ODBC connectivity and DTE reports.

§ Component replacement parts

If your part changes its identifying number, you can easily replace the original item.  The new item ID is inserted in each assembly or sub-assembly, with a single utility routine.

§ Copy & modify existing assembly

Adding a new BOM assembly that is slightly modified from one already in place is a simple procedure.  You just Copy any assembly to a new name and modify where needed. No need to re-enter the entire new assembly, only the differences.

§ Substitute items for reference

Identify substitute items within an assembly for reference should the original component be unavailable.

§ Keep your inventory quantities up to the minute

Allocate, de-allocate, or update stock within the work order transaction record. Allocate stock by simply entering the work order. De-allocate if the product assembly is cancelled. Update stock and relieve quantities when the finished product is complete.

§ Update inventory costs

Completed BOM work orders update costs automatically.  However, as costs to your business fluctuate, this may be necessary without work order completions. Update Last, Average, or Standard cost for a finished item at any time with one simple menu routine.

§ Cost choices

Choose the primary location DTE uses for component costs from any of your warehouse locations. In addition, choose which of the three costs to utilize, to include labor costs or not, and/or to consider a percentage of your business overhead costs.

§ Accurate cost management

Choose which warehouse location to draw on for component costs. Consider Average, Last, or Standard item costs for accounting purposes.

§ Accounting considerations

Optionally choose to include accounting entries for Work In Progress (WIP) assemblies, if necessary.  Then component and finished product Costs are interface to the DTE General Ledger application.

§ Materials used, required, and planning

There are many BOM reports that provide information for precise inventory control. For example, list each assembly or sub-assembly for an required item in the Materials Used report. Check Stock Availability for component items of an assembly.  Or include all products and components for a single Customer Order.

§ Multi-level reporting

Print either a single or multi-level assembly report for the explosion of components and/or cost information.

§ History reporting

Two primary historical reports provide the record of the work orders processed.  There is one for the finished product as well as each component used in the assembly of that product.
