Drive discrete manufacturing processes with a comprehensive cost and scheduling system

GLOVIA G2 Work Orders is the complete solution for managing all work order-related information and activities – from opening work orders and managing work-in-process transactions through coordinating and evolving your production lines.

Flexible Work Orders Structure

Work Orders gives you the flexibility you need to manage virtually any work order requirement effectively – whether you are building engineering prototypes, finished products and subassemblies, or managing an entire development project. The multiple line architecture allows you to schedule dates for multiple production runs or to build various combinations of items and/or value-added item components.

Backflush Operations

Optimal production operations often require discrete as well as repetitive manufacturing styles. Work Orders delivers the best of both worlds by allowing users to support a hybrid-manufacturing environment simultaneously with capabilities for both discrete and repetitive backflushing.

Robust Outside Processing

Work Orders allows you to attach a purchase order (PO) to a work order (WO) so that completed PO items can be received back into their designated work center on the original WO routing. This simplifies the paperwork required for outside processing and provides full inventory visibility, management, and control.

Complete Integration

Work Orders is fully integrated with the rest of GLOVIA G2 to assist with the management of your discrete manufacturing processes. All financial transaction data is available for GLOVIA G2 General Ledger posting.

Bills of Materials and Routings

For each manufactured line item on a WO, the system provides a bill of materials (BOM) and routing. Work Orders also provides the ability to include configured items and local structures on a WO's BOM. This gives you the opportunity to use existing product versions or to tailor product configurations online in response to current production conditions or unique customer requirements. You can make changes, for example, to accommodate substitutions based on material availability, production capacity, operational methods, tooling, and customer specifications. These unique records also provide the basis for order tracking, cost auditing, and the as-built product configuration control documentation.

Multiple Costing Methods

When dealing with a range of products or projects, you need a cost collection system that is flexible, not one that is limited to a single costing method. Standard, average and actual costing variances are easily visible. Work Orders provides the flexibility to select the cost methods most appropriate to the job at hand. Cost collection and accounting methods can be based on the item being built or the type of work performed.

Work-in-Process Visibility

You always have instant and accurate visibility to your current investments in work-in-process inventory. Each is tracked for easy comparison to the planned work order costs and accumulated detail costs. Labor and machine efficiency data is generated and all transaction activity is tracked and calculated for financial posting and reporting.
