All labels are printed on-demand, serialized, date & time stamped, and are integrated with the receiving, shipping, inventory control, and shop floor data collection software applications.



MPS (Master Production Scheduling)


PowerShop ERP™s   APS Master Production Scheduling system considers all significant demands and replenishments that are identified for production and translates those demands into a supply demand schedule for manufacturing.

In addition, it supports both finite and infinite loading, tooling, family part, and other user defined attribute scheduling.


MRP (Material Requirements Planning)


PowerShop ERP'S™   MRP module is fully integrated with the APS Scheduling Module offering the ability to calculate material requirements, and automatically create your master production schedule and purchase orders from MRP.


Job Estimating


PowerShop ERP™ includes a fully integrated Estimating & Quoting module. The Cost Estimating Module offers the ability to create a bill of material (BOM) and router for a potential new, current job or part to calculate the cost of manufacturing. The cost estimating software also offers the ability to copy an estimate, BOM, or router to create a new estimate.


Standard and Actual Costing


PowerShop ERP™ includes the unique ability to setup a tooling table or database to identify the tooling relationship for each part, the number of parts produced with a specific tool and the ability to include family tool attribute scheduling methodologies with your master production schedule.


Machine Maintenance

  Provides the ability to track machine maintenance intervals and be notified when a machine requires maintenance.
