How does Check delivery times work?
The Check delivery times (CDT) function helps you plan your operations quickly, reliably and effectively. CDT automatically calculates when you can deliver all the parts you want to include. Before creating the order confirmation you can see what you have in stock, and when you are able to deliver. And your staff will know what they’re expected to do, and when.
How does production planning work?
With Monitor ERP you can work with loading plans and detailed priority plans. Work digitally and automate your processes. We have support for daily management, so you can easily plan your day for different working groups.
How can I ensure traceability?
Monitor ERP has support for traceability both at batch and serial number level, from raw material to finished product. You can obtain a batch/serial number structure on multiple levels and perform detailed searches. You can also link certificates to a batch, and print them when the finished part is delivered.
How can I report and record time?
Monitor’s Time recording module enables you to report attendance, which forms the basis for salaries and time spent on manufacturing orders, which is then used for post-calculations.
Time recording can be performed by the operator at a terminal in the workshop or through a mobile app.
