All the Bill of Materials Tools
BILL OF MATERIALS
After you create a Bill of Materials (BOM) in Fishbowl, you can save it for future use. Create all of your Bill of Materials and duplicate easily, allowing for variations over time for version control. From the Bill of Materials create Work Orders for each production run and associate other information against your Bill of Materials such as routes and instructions, Location for production and Build Time.
Fishbowl caters to your more complex production needs such as multi-stage Bill of Materials, ability to include internal labour or outsourced production processes such as powder coating of cost for one off times such as setup times in the production area.
BOM INSTRUCTIONS / ROUTING
Within Bill of Materials you can detail the instructions, routes or processes that need to be followed during the manufacturing process including external links to files or images of processes.
With Fishbowl you can create multiple Work Orders within an overriding Manufacturing order for separate products being made together or if a production process has stages.
Each Work Order can be assigned to a Location, Category (anything from a production line to a staff member for scheduling) and production time.
Once your Work Orders are scheduled in Fishbowl, you can generate a Work Order Traveller with Instruction Steps or manage the process electronically on a tablet with Fishbowl GO.
Plan & Measure your Manufacturing
WORK ORDER LOCATIONS
Move Work Orders through different Locations so that you know exactly where your Work Orders are up to. Be alerted if something has not been completed on time and know your staffing requirements by production area.
Dynamically manage your production schedule in a Calendar view by dragging Work Orders and changing their expected time allocation.
Filter the Calendar by Work Order Category to filter your calendar for particular staff or production segments.
Once the Work Order has been actioned, keep track of where everything is up to by Starting the Work Order, Picking the Stock to the Work Order so you know what your inventory levels really are and consume for the stock picked; allowing Fishbowl to report your production yield as below.
If you have a need to track Serial Numbers, Batch Numbers, Lot Numbers or Expiry dates of stock through your production process from Raw Material through to a Finished Product, Fishbowl gives you complete traceability.
Smart Manufacturing Automation
Combine Fishbowl Manufacturing with Fishbowl Time which is a cloud-based timekeeping solution for tracking employees’ hours. With Fishbowl Time, your production staff are able to clock on and off the open Work Orders in Fishbowl showing you the accurate labour costs in your manufacturing work orders.
Fishbowl Time Lets you:
- Incorporate labour costs into total costs of work orders
- Budget labour costs and then compare them to the actual numbers
- Clock in and out from any Internet-connected device
- Use GPS tracking to check where employees clock in and out from
SALES ORDER TO WORK ORDER
If you manufacture products to customers orders, this process is completely automated with Fishbowl. You can configure a Bill of Material to automatically create the Work Order when a Sales Order is entered for that item and even create configurable Bill of Materials which enables a sales person to configure the product which needs to be made.
MANUFACTURING ORDER TO PURCHASE ORDER
If certain parts, materials or services are purchased specifically when needed for a Manufacturing Order, use the MO to PO wizard to have Fishbowl create the required Purchase Orders for all or just the required items.
Powerful Manufacturing Reports
Generate the reports that you need throughout the Production process. From the initial Work Order Traveller, Scheduling reports or Manufacturing Cost reports.
If you are in an Industry that requires particular production reporting, work with our team to build that report into your Fishbowl.
