What is NetSuite Work Order Management?
NetSuite work order management capabilities add control and visibility when producing assembly items for stock or to fill orders. Bring efficiencies to your manufacturing processes by being able to easily define assembly items, build complex multi-level bill of materials, create work orders, record assembly builds, and backflush components with minimal effort.
NetSuite helps manufacturers following lean principles operate without work orders. For manufacturers operating without work orders the Assembly Build transaction can be completed directly against the menu, allowing you to consume components and create the finished good.
Connecting Manufacturing and Financials
Link production processes to financial reports, inventory and outstanding orders, allowing you to see the impacts of manufacturing processes throughout the organization in real-time.
It would be impossible to continue to grow as we have without NetSuite. We have customer financial, production and manufacturing data all in one place.
NetSuite Work Order Management Benefits
NetSuite Work Order Management Features
NetSuite offers discrete manufacturers options for managing production processes, regardless of their size, complexity or business maturity. Work without work orders, backflush all materials upon completion, issue and track materials and labor as work-in-process costs, or define and track labor through a routing ticket system. Need flexible configuration options by location, configurable work order completion logic and enhanced data collection? NetSuite supports it all.
With NetSuite work order management capabilities, every batch is individually processed and tracked. Combined with NetSuite’s native lot tracking functionality, that provides complete end-to-end traceability. Machines, employees, work centers and assets are scheduled and assigned to each individual batch, and NetSuite’s manufacturing execution systems and barcode and tablet interfaces ensure that all data is tracked and updated in real time. Batch processing functionality supports alternate assets, coproducts, and detailed work instructions for recipe/formulation management. Combined with FIFO material issuance for raw and bulk lot-controlled items as well as Batch Travelers with Batch Lot ID manufacturers benefit from full lot track traceability and enhanced material issuance control.
Shop Floor Controls
Easily prioritize, track and report against production orders and schedules, including evaluating current resource status, labor and machine use. Gather supporting information right from the floor, in real-time. Control how employees, materials, machines and production time are deployed, and using the tablet, provide instant feedback and visual warnings right to workstations. A work order traveler — a system-generated document — provides shop floor personnel with needed manufacturing specifications and travels with the job as it progresses through the shop.
Transfer Order Management
If you store inventory across multiple locations, NetSuite’s transfer order management allows you to easily move items to the correct sites in preparation for assembly. Existing integrations with external warehouse management systems can leverage this insight to manage data about inventory movement between locations, and transfer orders can initialize item fulfillment and item receipt transactions.
