Central to any manufacturing information system is its work order component. Work orders are the key record through which inventory is transacted from piece parts, to WIP, and then finished goods.
The OfficeBooks development team has set its sights on beefing up our work order component into a full fledged production management system.
OfficeBooks Beta version 1.6 will enable users to define work centers and manufacturing work flows. These work flows will tie-in with your existing bill of materials to allow you to link inventory requirements to specific steps within a work flow. This is very important for companies looking to implement a lean or quick response manufacturing system.
As we work on these improvements, your input is very important. Don't be shy to get in touch by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
