NAV for PM Manufacturing Business Modules

Regardless of the metals you work with (i.e., gold, silver or any of the PGMs), your manufacturing processes (i.e., heat, pressure, reduction metalworking) or the specific precious metal alloyed products you make (i.e., bullion, coin blanks, ingots, wire, sheet, shots), NAV for PM Manufacturing will help you produce the right products, in the right quantities, at the right time and at maximum profit.

  • Incorporate WIP inventory into your manufacturing process or your finished goods inventory
  • Allocate customer metal to customer's finished goods orders
  • Track precious metals and scrap throughout the production cycle - even while at outside vendors
  • Include precious metal WIP inventory into your daily metal hedging calculations
  • Generate daily market valuation reports for your precious metal products
  • Create multi-level (nested) production bills of materials and calculate standard cost
  • Create and manage Production Orders and calculate net requirements, generate a pick list for the production or operations manager and transfer inventory to each work-in-process (WIP) center
  • Post Production Orders and see how much was assigned to each WIP location, how much assigned to finished goods inventory, and how much scrap resulted from the manufacturing process
  • Create and manage different versions of the manufacturing bill of materials and WIP routing
  • Manage demand forecasting based on individual products
  • Add work-in-process (WIP) routing to the manufacturing process. Set up routings and use them on production orders and in material requirements planning. View loads and the task list for the capacities
  • Plan material requirements based on demand with support for master production scheduling and materials requirements planning. Automatic production orders and purchase orders. Action messages for fast and easy balancing of supply and demand. Setup for items with their own reordering policy, including registration of whether they are manufactured by or purchased from a third party
  • Manage finite loading of capacity-constraint resources. Make more reliable plans by taking capacity constraints into account so that no more work is assigned to a work center than the capacities can be expected to execute during a given time period.
  • Quality Control / Assurance - Evaluate lots based on customer specifications, store QA results at the lot level and review QA lot specifications in inventory for customer match.
  • View production orders, WIP routings and capacity loading. Reschedule operations by dragging and dropping in a graphical interface to update the related production order data.
  • Utilize both standard and market pricing. You can cost inventory as soon as the settlement has posted.
  • Generate detailed Industry Valuation & Position Reports.
  • Financial Management
  • Business Intelligence and Reporting
