The Fluentis ERP - Subcontracting Area software allows the creation of subcontracting orders either manually from production or automatically by confirming the reordering proposals generated by the needs analysis procedures. Once the order has been forwarded to the subcontractor suppliers, the module manages the issue of the transport documents for the materials (taking into consideration the materials supplied directly by the subcontractors and their stock in the warehouse), and finally the loading of the transport documents. of purchase that will download the subcontractor's warehouse. The module is integrated with the bill of materials and allows you to manage return codes from the work account, through the organization of returns. All this is integrated with the management of the price lists, which allows the assignment of the price both by code and, possibly, by code - phase.
Subcontracting orders can be entered manually, rather than automatically generated by the processing of the Production Scheduler (MS). The subcontracting order, very similar in nature to the supplier order, has the particularity of indicating a series of information such as: the quantities of semi-finished product to be produced, the quantities of material to be used, the quantities of material to be delivered to the subcontractor depending on the actual stock, in addition to defining a series of information such as the delivery time of the material being processed.
Through this procedure with the Fluentis ERP software it is possible to process the Lohn order and create a delivery note for the material to the subcontractor, then download the goods at the central warehouse and keep track of the relative deposit of the same at the subcontractor's warehouse. It is possible to manage a single warehouse that brings together all the subcontractors, precisely "Goods from third parties", and define the existence according to the key of the "sub-account" of the subcontractor.
The management of the returns allows to be able to load the worked goods at the central warehouse, and download the materials that the subcontractor consumed during his production process. In this case, any production waste is also detected.
Through this procedure it is possible to define the rates with which the subcontractor is commissioned to process the semi-finished products. In this case it is precisely possible to define a price for each type of "processing phase" in the context of a specific type of semi-finished product produced.
The Processing Account area of the Fluentis ERP software allows you to manage the activelohn system, or the possibility of organizing production through the management of external companies. The procedure was designed to allow for a dual operation of the software, that is to say the support of the more common Code Change lohn system, rather than operating in the context of lohn system in the phase. In the first case, the parameters necessary to identify the information relating to external processing in the component article are already defined at the list level. In the case of lohn system in the phase , already at the production cycle level, it is possible to define whether it is internal or external. Depending on the definition parameters of the subcontractor, the same will be commissioned for external processing and, subsequently with the return of the semi-finished product, it will be possible to unload the warehouse of materials from the subcontractor and automatically load the semi-finished product at the central warehouse. In the event that the company does not have an internal production, it is possible to configure the account environment to obtain the management of deliveries between subcontractors. In other words, to develop a production context characterized by all external processes, where delivery between subcontractors takes place at the end of each process.
