unitop makes the difference

Contact cockpit

You have all information about prospective customers, customers and suppliers at a glance on one screen in the contact cockpit – from contact details, tasks that need to be done, open offers, phone messages through to visit reports.

You also have access to achieved sales or unpaid invoices. All relevant business activities are logged with the respective contact and can be analysed via the contact cockpit.

Item pricing/precalculation

If an item is requested for the first time or you need to calculate a price for a new item, you can generate a cost calculation item or a new price using the item cost calculation in unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering based on the costs for the raw materials, components, purchased items, internal and external workflows as well as freely definable parameters. This can also be geared towards the size of the batches or individual customers. If the customer requests a cost calculation item then the data stored in the item master, BOM and work schedule are transferred to the item master and the calculation is turned into a quote. Pricing can also be done based on items already sold in case of similar item requests.

Project-related manufacturing

The project management must be completely integrated into the ERP system to capture all activities from design, manufacturing, provision and services, which is absolutely elementary for the successful handling of projects with your complex and cost-intensive products. This allows you to permanently monitor the costs and due dates of your project as well as the current project status. You can conduct a continuous calculation and keep an overview of all processes.

CAD drawing management

What does an item look like? What are its dimensions? How is it constructed? In order to answer these questions quickly and easily, you can use drawing management in unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering to store CAD drawings of purchased and manufactured items quickly and easily in the corresponding item master. Several drawings can be stored for each item and different states of revision can be managed. The stored drawings are saved centrally in the integrated DMS.

Product configurator

If you sell your machines and plants in several variants, the product configurator in unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering supports you with the pricing and creation of new sales variants including master data, such as texts, BOMs and work schedules. These variants are created using a freely configurable set of rules. This set of rules and the knowledge defined therein enable employees without extensive product knowledge to prepare offers and provide technical consulting to customers over the phone. The user is guided through the configurator. The selected template can be assigned individual parameters. The product configurator compares the parameters entered and selected with the set of rules stored. This can take into account the links between certain parameters as well as their effect on the feasibility, calculation and preparation of BOMs. Furthermore, all the necessary master data, such as the BOM and work schedule are automatically created in the background. This saves time and prevents errors and reduces the burden on the technical departments. The result is a reproducible offer describing the specifics of the configured item.

Production planning/control station

An integrated production control station adds detailed planning to unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering. Using this cockpit, you can conduct detailed planning based on the actual availability of the resources. The planner has the possibility to change job priorities and production sequences until shortly before production starts. Machine operators and assembly teams only see the production orders they need to work on, together with the accompanying documents (notes, drawings, necessary tools etc.). This user interface can also be used to enter production times and consumption which leads to more flexible, faster and more efficient production processes, even in case of disruptions. This results in shorter processing times, greater adherence to delivery dates and a smaller inventory.

Production confirmation and post calculation

You require precise data to generate a prompt post calculation, like consumption, rejects, intermediate results or end of item manufacturing. Your employees will provide you with this data during each shift using confirmation terminals to readout the manufacturing documents equipped with bar codes. Time-intensive manual, subsequent entries are no longer needed and scheduling times for future production orders can be optimized with the returned actual values.

Quality management

The integrated quality management helps you to monitor your production processes and to ensure the quality of your products as well as the satisfaction of your customers. Manufacturers have to deliver products of consistently high quality. Quality management helps to identify quality issues, to correct them and to introduce corrective measures. Intermediate inspections may also be defined during individual internal or external production steps to ensure consistent production quality. The same applies to a final inspection, which ensures that only impeccable products leave your company.

Services

You offer your customers a service that they can demand after buying your products? In unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering you can manage all services performed for each product which ensures that you always keep an overview of warranty terms, performed services, delivered spare parts etc. Resource scheduling and feedback from your service employees concerning times and consumption can also be done on a smart phone or on a device for mobile data capture with unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering.

Integrated document management system (DMS)

Substantially reduce your employees' search times by using document management for the activity-related storage of internal and external documents, such as e-mails, incoming mail, production documents, CAD drawings or even order and project folders. Using a central DMS inbox, all documents can be associated with an activity by simply dragging and dropping. This enables you to quickly and systematically provide information for your customers and vendors.

Warehouse logistics

Hohe Lieferfähigkeit, kurze Auftragsdurchlaufzeiten und optimale Bestände sind die Erfolgsfaktoren der innerbetrieblichen Logistik und Distribution. Entsprechend umfangreich ist die A high level of delivery reliability, short lead times and optimum stocks are the success factors of internal logistics and distribution. The warehouse logistics function in unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering is extensive: every warehouse and the products stored in it are different. You can individually optimise your material planning with parameters, such as minimum/maximum stock, safety stock and order quantity. Organisational warehouse issues, such as consignment stock, can also be easily visualized in the production planning software. The integrated communication with delivery service providers and freight forwarders as well as the ATLAS customs software ensure that your shipments are always processed efficiently.

Machine interface

unitop ERP Mechanical Engineering is equipped with an interface whose parameters can be flexibly adjusted. All digital data from external devices and machines can be processed in the ERP software via this interface. Examples are: importing measurement data, connecting to production machines or to RFID scanners.
