What is BEAS Manufacturing ?

Beas manufacturing provides a wide variety of functions to enable you to keep track of every relevant aspect in production planning. For example, if the expiration of raw materials is an issue, Beas Manufacturing offers a report that identifies all the lots that are due to expire within a certain number of days. In addition, planned downtime can be managed on the resource maintenance calendar, and production scheduling can be automatically moved from a stopped resource to an active resource.

Improve your production efficiency and increase productivity.

Get real-time visibility of your business performance.

For many manufacturers, gaining visibility into office and plant operations is crucial for improving revenue. Storing data offline or in separate systems hinders growth and slows down report processing, compromising data accuracy and decision-making.

Beas Manufacturing offers various functions to enhance production planning. It can generate reports on expiring raw materials, manage planned downtime via a resource maintenance calendar, and automatically adjust production schedules from stopped to active resources.

Optimize your production resources

Close monitoring of manufacturing maximizes throughput, allowing proactive responses to problems and reducing plant downtime. With complex bills of materials and multi-constraint resources like machines, tooling, and labor, providing accurate customer delivery dates is challenging. Recording data on paper further reduces production visibility and complicates manual planning.

Optimizing these resources is essential to maximize output, reduce changeovers, and meet customer demand. Beas Manufacturing’s capacity planning uses finite backward scheduling to calculate initial delivery dates. Combined with Beas Manufacturing APS, it schedules material availability and capacity together, enabling efficient planning for numerous short-run production orders.

Easily understand product margins

Manufacturing companies often lack confidence in their pricing decisions and rarely raise prices. For process manufacturers, complex bills of materials make cost tracking difficult. Ideally, every ingredient’s cost, including waste, should be tracked accurately. Without this, manufacturers can’t estimate total actual costs per unit or compare them with sales prices to determine profit margins.

Beas can capture, assign, and compare actual and standard costs for all finished products. Capturing true costs at the batch level provides detailed cost visibility, essential for success. This includes material, labor, machine, and overhead costs, as well as costs for co-products, by-products, and waste impact.

Manage product life cycles & versions

Managing BOM changes is crucial amidst increasing product complexity and faster cycle times. Slow communication through the supply chain can lead to incorrect revisions, excessive scrapping, and unpredictability in cost estimates, hampering competitive pricing.

Manufacturers should prioritize BOM change management, implementing automated updates and ensuring department-wide communication. Beas Manufacturing’s revision management facilitates handling multiple active BOMs and conducting change impact analysis across various stages, ensuring the availability of correct products to meet customer demand.

Optimize Your Inventory Management

Inventory costs are often inaccurate and underestimated. Many manufacturers are unaware of the extent of their dead inventory, despite significant costs for carrying raw materials and finished goods. Obsolete inventory ties up cash reserves and occupies expensive warehouse space.

Beas Manufacturing’s supply and demand management balances inventory to ensure the right components and quantities are in the warehouse, reducing obsolescence related to product changes and improving the financial bottom line.

Achieve Industry Quality Standards

As commercial pressure mounts to meet regulatory mandates, manufacturers must prioritize compliance and traceability. By minimizing product recall risks, cutting manufacturing costs, and ensuring end-to-end traceability, they can streamline supply chain operations. Despite some automation, many organizations still use labor-intensive manual traceability methods, consuming valuable time and effort.

Beas Manufacturing’s quality control empowers enterprises to set testing parameters and maintains a comprehensive audit and electronic documentation trail of quality control procedures. This significantly enhances overall product quality and traceability.

SAP Business One and Beas Manufacturing:

They fit together !

When functions operate independently of the core business system, decision-makers face challenges. Similarly, lack of communication between business elements leads to fragmented outputs. In contrast, integrated workflow automation enhances productivity by reducing manual data entry, eliminating duplication, and minimizing errors.

The diagram below illustrates the integration of SAP Business One with Beas Manufacturing, enhancing core business processes. SAP Business One manages material and financial flows through sales, service, purchasing, and fiscal functions. Beas Manufacturing adds industry-specific features not included in SAP Business One, while optional modules address complex needs like real-time production data collection and advanced planning and scheduling for resource optimization.
