ERP Internals/Modules/Manufacturing/Shop Floor Control
Shop Floor Control implements the plan created by APS (Advance Planning and Scheduling). It issues work orders to individual work centers, requests raw materials from Inventory and, when the finished items are complete, issues stocking requests to Inventory for them. It records the actual time used to complete the tasks so accurate costing can be done, errors can be corrected and realistic standards maintained. Shop Floor Control feeds hours of operation for machines to Service Management so that maintenance can be scheduled.
