Manufacturing Made Easy Through Automation

Fishbowl is an affordable manufacturing solution for any business

Bill of Materials Can Save Time on the Warehouse Floor

With Fishbowl Manufacturing®, after a bill of materials is created, it can automatically be generated again and again each time that specific job occurs. This speeds up the manufacturing process by helping manufacturers get organised faster.

A bill of materials can be customised to meet different needs. For example, if there are several versions of the same product, the bill of materials can be modified for one version to be used for all the others.

A bill of materials doesn’t have to just be a list of words. It can also include pictures of the parts you’re looking for to make them easier to identify. Using a wireless mobile device, parts on a bill of materials can quickly be located within your warehouse.

If you don’t use everything on the bill of materials, you can go into Fishbowl Manufacturing and easily adjust the records to show the actual number of parts you used, instead of the planned number. This cuts down on wasted materials and it keeps your records accurate.
