Chemical production plants are often highly automated with sophisticated measuring and testing systems designed to ensure quality of raw materials and work in progress, as well as high production yields. It is therefore desirable that any ERP production control and tracking system is able to integrate seamlessly with this process technology to exchange information and highlight issues at the relevant points. SYSPRO e.net solutions enables rapid development of secure and version-independent integration with such best-of-breed technology.
SYSPRO enables you to implement continuous improvement by helping you to identify problems and points of waste as they happen. Raw materials and manufactured products in the industry often vary in grade and quality, so tracking and control is essential to reduce waste, scrap and defects. SYSPRO enables you to specify approved manufacturers for raw material supplies and supplier performance can easily be tracked using queries and reports. In addition, SYSPRO facilitates the tracking of materials from purchase through production to customer, thereby maximizing quality control and providing you with the tools to manage product recalls, should they occur.
You can flag purchased items as requiring inspection so that during receipting, detailed records of counts, inspection, scrap, rejects and returns is recorded. Units in inspection are visible, but unavailable for use until accepted into stock. Similarly, SYSPRO's Work in Progress inspection system provides the tools for you to inspect manufactured product quality and, depending on the results, select to receipt, scrap or rework quantities.
