Frisco, TX (PRWEB) December 9, 2009
American Unit, Inc., a leading systems integration and application development services firm focused on assisting middle market enterprises, today announced the availability of its Shop Floor Control add-on module for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The company, which boasts a strong background and continuing presence in the manufacturing ERP market, is developing a suite of add-on modules that address functional gaps in the Dynamics NAV solution. Shop Floor Control for Dynamics NAV is the first module in that suite to enter the market.
Manual collection of production information is often slow and prone to inaccuracies. With American Unit’s Shop Floor Control module, employees can register information in one easy-to-use system, providing greater fidelity and speed. The system supports the use of bar codes for even faster input of raw materials consumption and time used per individual task. Bar codes are automatically printed on all relevant production reports.
This unique and proprietary solution can further reduce time spent on data input by designating a team leader to manage team member’s registrations. This feature simplifies the process and lowers the risk of data entry errors.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Shop Floor Control also enables the bundling of operations to reduce registration even more. Employees working on several operations can register their time spent on all operations at one time.
The primary benefits of the new module, improving the efficiency of shop floor operations and automating collection of employee time and attendance, are enabled by the many key features and functions of the solution, which include:
- Collection of Employee Time and Attendance Information
- Advanced time profiles for both groups and individual employees
- Automatic profile search
- A work planning tool for setting up shift schedules
- Handling of personnel absences
- Collection of machine time
- Notice Board with individual messages and receipt feature
- Two-step validation procedure available to check time
- Calculation/approval status
- Configurable registration forms
- Password-protected validation
- Direct integration with the production modules
- Overview of the production situation
- Simulation of when operations should be completed based on time allocated
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Shop Floor Control significantly decreases the time spent performing administrative tasks, while increasing the reliability of employee time and attendance data. Shop Floor Control represents a significant enhancement to the functionality of the Microsoft Dynamic NAV solution and is also easy for employees to use.
