Improve visibility and management of vendors with Fluentis ERP Subcontracting

The Fluentis ERP – Subcontracting module 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 subcontractor suppliers, the module generates the transport documents for the materials (taking into account the materials supplied directly by the subcontractors and their stock in the warehouse) and also 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 even by code – phase.


  • Lohn orders
  • Returns
  • Re-entries
  • Subcontractor price lists

What can you do with the Fluentis ERP Subcontracting Area?


Subcontracting orders can be entered manually, rather than automatically generated by the processing of the Production Scheduler (MS). The subcontracting order, similar to the supplier order, can indicate a range 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 actual stock), and also indicate time of delivery for the material being processed.


The Fluentis ERP Subcontracting module can process the Lohn order and provide a delivery note for the material to the subcontractor. It then downloads the goods at the central warehouse and keeps track of the relative deposit of them at the subcontractor’s warehouse. It is possible to manage a single warehouse that encompasses all subcontractors, and define the existence according to the key of the “sub-account” of the subcontractor.


The management of returns makes it possible to load the worked goods at the central warehouse and download the materials that the subcontractor consumed during their production process. In this case, any production waste is also detected.


This feature defines the rates with which the subcontractor is commissioned to process the semi-finished products. In this case it is possible to specifically define a price for each type of “processing phase” in the context of a specific type of semi-finished product produced.

Lohn system with code exchange and Lohn system in phase

The Subcontracting module of the Fluentis ERP system allows you to manage the active Lohn system and organize production through the management of external companies. It allows dual operation of the software, meaning 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 the 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, upon return of the semi-finished product, users can unload the materials from the subcontractor in the warehouse and automatically load the semi-finished product at the central warehouse.
If the company does not have an internal production system, it is possible to configure the account environment to obtain the management of deliveries between subcontractors. In other words, the Subcontracting module can develop a production context characterized by all external processes, where delivery between subcontractors takes place at the end of each process.
