Configurable Bill of Materials
Define all of the options within a product you manufacture. This enables you to map out the variations within a build and have that automatically adjust the sale price of the item being produced. Meaning any user can accurately quote for a product, ask all the right questions and come up with the correct price based on the rules defined.
Quoting & Custom Work Orders
With Fishbowl Manufacturing you can create an Estimate or Quote by adding a Configurable Bill of Materials to the Sales Order or by Building a completely custom Work Order on the fly directly in the Estimate Sales Order screen.
This will automatically cost the materials and time entered to then create a sell price from. If the Estimate progresses to a Sales Order. The input from the Estimate is automatically used to created the Work Order (Job Card) for you.
Purchasing What you Need for Manufacturing
Once a Sale has been won Fishbowl will automatically convert the Sales Order into a Manufacturing Order. If you purchase some or all materials needed for the job you can use the Manufacturing Order to Purchase Order wizard to have Fishbowl draft all the needed Purchase Orders for you.
Units of Measure
Fishbowl allows materials to be purchased in one unit of measure, stocked in another and then consumed in another. If you purchase certain materials by the length or weight.
E.g. purchasing steel in 6.5m length but want to then stock that material in your business by the lineal metre and finally consume and use that stock on a Manufacturing Order by the millimetre then Fishbowl and its Unit of Measure conversion will make this a breeze.
