First, what is a job shop? We consider a job shop a company that builds completely custom, often one-off products.
This is one of the most difficult environments to automate. Our job shop manufacturing software can be helpful for some, though not all real true shops.
If you are more of a Make-to-Order company, where you have frequent repeats, see this page instead.
PBS™ Manufacturing job shop ERP software is best suited to shops where you are apt to see some repeats or where there is similarity between custom products.
Our Shop Floor Control and Manufacturing Job Costing modules can be invaluable tools in this environment. We help you understand profitability before an order ever ships by allowing you to compare anticipated to actual costs at any time during the life of the job!
In addition, our job shop manufacturing software can help you automate scheduling each and every operation that needs to be performed in order to produce your complex products, while collecting feedback from production so you can monitor the progress.
If you make products that require many different materials, or have many sub-assemblies, our material planning functions can help you better manage this aspect of your business ensuring jobs go out on time!
If you fall under our definition of “job shop”, we encourage you to contact us to see if our job shop ERP software meets your needs. If we don’t believe we can help, you’ll be the second one to know! We don’t like to try to force fit our applications into environments where it won’t help…
