iFacto manufacturing: ERP software for manufacturing companies

With Microsoft Dynamics ERP you have the tools at hand to streamline your manufacturing process and optimally serve your customers with high delivery reliability. With our supplement specifically for manufacturing environments you enjoy all the advantages of a standard ERP system, complemented by all the needs customary in your manufacturing environment!

Manage your manufacturing parts lists

Manage your recipes, parts lists or Bills of Material (BOM) in one integrated system for all your semi-manufactured products and finished products.

You obtain transparency in the current material list, the previous versions and any temporarily applicable adaptations. Control your manufacturing orders and write off consumption during manufacturing with your manufacturing parts lists.

Control of consumption can take place using different methods: forwards (according to planned totals with the creation of a manufacturing order), backwards (according to planned totals with the booking of the finished product) or manually (according to actual totals).

Manufacturing support from solid manufacturing planning

Delivery reliability based on optimum planning for both Make-to-Order, Make-to-Stock companies, assembly companies, etc. is a key concept in your manufacturing environment. Use Microsoft Dynamics ERP and the iFacto tools to fine-tune your manufacturing planning with orders, historical sales and forecasts.

A manufacturing proposal (MPS) is generated based on manufacturing requirements that you can optimize with the tools that iFacto makes available by reducing setting times to the extent possible.

Besides clear capacity summaries, the optimization of the supply chain and the facilitation of work contracted out also form part of your manufacturing planning.

Integrate your ERP on the manufacturing floor

With the integration of your ERP system on the shop floor you are always up-to-date on all current data. Your manufacturing itself is also guided with the most up-to-date information and orders. There is also the integration of your ERP system with machines and weighing appliances based on web services.

Ensure the accurate supply and removal of raw materials, packaging, semi-manufactured products, finished products to and from your manufacturing environment with the wireless RF scanning modules.

Directly print your labels in production from your ERP system, so your products are correctly identified and provided with a bar code.

Working together on a goal-oriented implementation

iFacto brings together its experience of implementation processes for over 300 companies. Our implementation process is based on proven methods, while being fine-tuned to match your situation. Our project approach guarantees good preparation and close monitoring of the different project stages, the project plan, the timing and the budget by our project managers.

Diagnostic investigation

During the sales process iFacto starts with a diagnostic investigation in which we set out the requirements and desires of the customer before translating this into a demo for the standard application. A first budget estimate is made based on this information.

Business process analysis

We then set out the business processes. The BPA describes the processes, the implementation decisions and possible adaptations and will serve as blueprint for your course of implementation.

Installation and set-up

The implementation process starts during the installation and setup phase. After a kickoff meeting the software is installed and your system is set up.

Detail system set-up

We further elaborate the basis created in the installation and setup phase during system detailing. Here the consultant and the customer together further fine-tune and parameterise the system. A first pilot conversion takes place. The customer starts the first constituent tests and documents the work instructions. This phase closes with a simulation with all key users becoming familiar with the processes.

Deployment phase

The training takes place in the deployment phase, along with the user acceptance tests and final conversion. The project team releases the project before the Go-live milestone is reached.

Operational phase

You can also call upon our consultants with the start-up if needed. You will then be further supported by the support team.
