Additional Information
The Costing module provides sophisticated, precise calculations based on all factors that affect product cost - including labor, overhead, loss, and more. It will reformulate mixtures to meet desired target costs, and generate detailed analyses of all types of cost-related data instantly! With BatchMaster, you can rely upon advanced tools, coupled with a disciplined methodology, to closely monitor and control your costs, without sacrificing quality.

At the heart of your Product Development Lab is your ability to design and manage all your formulas. You need an audit trail on your experimentation to take the mystery out of success and make it repeatable. BatchMaster supports multi-level formulas and easy material substitutions. Experimentation with new formulas should be just as easy as the maintenance of your tried-and-true formulas. BatchMaster is formula- and not BOM-based, with ingredients added by prescribed proportions measured by either volume or weight.

Inventory Management

One of your highest priorities is managing your inventory effectively. Process manufacturers must accurately characterize all items they carry in inventory, keep track of their locations, maintain appropriate stock levels for all critical items, and be able to immediately supplement depleted stocks if a sales opportunity warrants. BatchMaster provides the controls and confidence necessary to reduce material inventory. Inventories can be valued using standard, average, LIFO, FIFO, or lot cost.

The BatchMaster Production module was designed specifically to enhance operating efficiency of process manufacturers. Its powerful yet flexible features expedite scheduling, simplify batch sizing, and generate real-time information faster and easier than ever before. Being specially designed for the process manufacturing industry, BatchMaster Production leaves no gaps between the software and actual operations. BatchMaster Production's Batch creation screen creates batches generating one or more final products. The batch can be assigned to a specific work center and scheduled to the day and time it is expected to run. BatchMaster supports advanced batch models such as SuperBatch™ and Runs. SuperBatch allows for multiple steps of a single batch to be contained in a single SuperBatch object. Runs allows for large all day batches to be separated into individual executable pieces.

Bill of Materials

A large amount of the work need to be done in Process Manufacturing is in combining, mixing and preparing (e.g., heating, pressurizing) combinations of raw materials and intermediates. Towards the end of the production process is the "packaging" of your production output, into forms of use for customers, and often in a manner to accommodate Sales with promotional packaging. You need a great deal of versatility at this BOM stage, especially with consumer products, where in which packaging provides the "sizzle." Also, when providing materials to customers that they then remanufacture, your containers must be effective yet low in cost.

Capacity Planning

The fundamental basis for your decision-making is available capacity. Successful companies are those that carefully manage their capacity and make effective scheduling decisions. BatchMaster Enterprise Master Production Scheduling ("MPS") provides rough-cut capacity planning, allowing you to compare projected resource requirements to available resources and process constraints. You can examine all critical resource groups, including equipment, storage and labor and compare alternative scheduling scenarios. Rough-cut capacity planning considers resource calendars, projected production line throughput rates and planned downtime to compare planned usage against projected available capacity. You will quickly spot idle capacity along with process bottlenecks to guide you in better balancing your resource utilization.
Capacity constraints can be assigned at machine, group, department or plant level

You can smooth schedule and override adjustments

You can view effects on utilization of such as labor, equipment or storage

You can optimize the resource plan and spawn a series of production jobs to load your facilities

Process Cell Module provides snapshots of commitments against a time line

You can adjust schedules for each process cell for a given batch ticket to schedule multiple batches
