Misa Project Component Descriptions
This was submitted by Tim Johnson @ CSUN.
So far this gives us a big picture of how we can divide the work. Diagraming the interactions between the components still need to be done.
Allows creation and maintenance of Bills of
Materials, Production Routings and Outside Processing for a variety of manufacturing
environments. Product Definition also allows for By-product and Waste definition,
as well as providing unlimited commenting capability.
Allows for multiple cost categories for Labor,
Overhead, and Material and supports cost at each operation step as well
as calculating the value through each step. Product Costing also provides
simulation capability (what-if scenarios) through the use of manufacturing
Fully integrated MRP II system consisting of
MPS (Master Production Schedule), MRP (Material Requirements Planning),
and CRP (Capacity Requirements Planning) all providing Planning unlimited
simulation/ planning capabilities for material purchasing,production, and
capacity resources planning.
Allows for the generation of production orders,
shop orders, work orders, etc.released to the shop floor. Activity control
works in conjunction with the shop floor control module to provide a variety
of production performance reports including all variance reporting.
Shop Floor Control
The primary reporting tool from the production
facility to the system. All production related activities such as labor,
material usage, and production are posted and updated using the Shop Floor
Tracks and provides cost analysis on standard
costs (budgeted), actual cost(consumed), and production costs at the production
order, production split, production product ID ,and each production detail
step. Job Costing also provides the capability for cost adjustments, closing
production orders, and maintaining production order history.
Interfaced with the manufacturing and distribution modules for enterprise-wide functionality. The General Ledger also provides Executive Information Reporting as well as a user-defined General Ledger Account Structure.
Allows for recurring payables with automatic
General Ledger distribution, posting under cash or accrual basis by individual
company, cash requirements reporting and entering invoices by vouchers or
invoice numbers. The accounts payable application also provides multiple
cash accounts,unlimited vendor comments, check reconciliation, and 1099
Allows for unlimited credit comments, vital
statistics inquiry, finance charge calculation as well as multiple ship-to
accounts. Also provides cash expectation reporting, customer statements,
and cash application by invoice range, date range, and individual invoice.
Provides for automatic calculation of wages,
deductions, contributions, and taxable income on an employee by employee
bases. The results of these transactions can be written to the integrated
General Ledger and Accounts Payable module when applicable making the payroll
process clean, simple, and cost-effective.
Allows companies to keep their banking operations
with cash flows coming in and going out, in sync with the accounting system.
The system accomplishes this by giving the user a way of pulling together
the information regarding these flows from different areas of the company
so it can be verified and compared to actual flows in a time saving yet
financially responsible manner.
Provides the ability to track assets and calculate depreciation. The Fixed Assets module allows for as many depreciation calculations on an asset as required for business. A variety of reports are available showing you the value of each asset for book value, tax, and insurance purposes. Acquisitions and retirements are handled with appropriate postings to General Ledger.
Analysis of ABC, EOQ, shortages, turnover, and obsolescence. Provides Date/Time transactions tracking by location. Abilityto define multiple units of measure with conversion.
Supports partial or full receipts and features supplier item number reference. The Purchasing Management application also provides delivery performance, price performance, and returns tracking information, as well as automatic creation of accounts payable invoices.
Provides for deposits on Sales Orders, Return
Materials Authorizations, and unlimited commenting capabilities. Sales order
management also provides for the definition of unique sales and pricing
units of measure as well as supporting standing sales orders.
Provides an interface allowing CAD drawing programs
to interface with the manufacturing system. Parts and dimensions are automatically
used in the generation of production orders.
Allows tracking of lot or serialized items.
Including tracking an input to find what group of end products in which
it is consumed. This tool allows identification of end items based on a
lot tracked input, necessary for product recalls due to defective input
Provides the ability to generate product estimates
for new or current products. Includes the ability to define components on
the fly without previous definition, enter production times, set up pricing
information all before the pricing calculation is done. Followed up with
the ability to turn these estimates into quotes, definitions and production
Provides the ability to track potential customers
through the sales process. Notes and documents can be associated with each
potential client and all information is available through the system.
POS - Point of Sale
An interface to cash registers and POS credit card machines.
Allows for the analysis of data and/or the databasde. Trends and changes not apparent to the normal user that can affect a business can be seen with statistical analysis.
