Rootstock’s Cloud ERP software takes industrial equipment & machinery manufacturing to the next level.
Powerful Engineering Management Tools
Production Engineering helps your industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing business manage components, sub-assemblies, bills of material (BOMs), routings and engineering changes no matter how complex they are.
- Revision Control maintains status and effectivity dates, manages additional BOM and routing revisions, and generates work order demand by revision.
- Engineering Change Control (ECO) manages ECOs and tracks component and operation changes through authorizations and approvals.
Integrated Scheduling, Planning, Inventory and Shop Floor Control
Scheduling and capacity planning in Rootstock’s Cloud ERP software lets you balance production with material supply using a simple drag-and-drop scheduler.
- Create and manage schedules for all firmed, released and in-process work orders of your industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing business.
- Level loads by dragging work order operations from one day to another.
Use Inventory Control to maintain inventory, track inventory locations, costs and quantities, and plan and set policies such as lead time, MRP parameters and RP (Replenishment Planning). Learn More
Rootstock’s shop floor control software helps you manage the production and material flow with your suppliers and in your factories. Establish routings based on defined labor grades, departments, work centers, machine master files and processes. Learn More
Centralized Engineering for Multiple Plants and Divisions
Centralized production engineering defines one division within a company as the engineering division for all of the divisions within that company. Each division maintains information such as product masters, item masters, and BOMs. That data is shared with other divisions, eliminating the need to duplicate it at each division of your industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing business.
The ability to manage costing throughout the manufacturing process is critical to your business and managing margins. Rootstock Cloud ERP gives you complete visibility and control of costing, helping you identify and manage cost elements while eliminating inefficiencies.
- Define cost elements for purchased material, subcontract material, labor, machine and machine and material burden.
- Track costs in real time against an estimate to determine overall project profitability throughout the life of the estimate and determine estimates for future projects.
Manufacturing Cost Control lets you closely monitor and control costs, maintaining and tracking up to eight cost elements for an item.
Cost Analysis and General Ledger Drill Down
Rootstock Cloud ERP has the ability to accurately track costs at very detailed levels in operations while rolling up and posting automatically into the General Ledger, making sure cost accounting and operations tie out seamlessly with Finance. Users can monitor costs at both levels or drill down from the General Ledger into the manufacturing cost detail.
- Define up to eight different cost components for an item in addition to General ledger accounts.
- Cost transactions flow automatically to the general ledger for faster period closes.
- Drill down from the General Ledger to cost details maintained in manufacturing cost control accounts.
- Compare budgets vs actuals in real-time dashboards and/or mobile devices.
