It’s all about Control…..

 With so much going on every day in the production department, it’s often difficult to work out where you are at with costs, materials, equipment and personnel. It should be simple – complete the job to the correct spec on time without using too many resources so you can turn a profit. In reality, production control is an incredibly complex area. Fortunately, E-Max ERP’s production control functionality has been designed to streamline this whole area for you, giving you back the control you need.

 E-Max ERP’s robust production control system enables you to reduce waste, lower your costs and gives you better than ever decision making. Everything we’ve ever known about engineering, manufacturing and production control has been considered when designing this element in particular of our software and this is evident in the ease of implemention and adoption.

 E-Max ERP provides you with the ability to identify problem areas, such as lack of material or capacity, quickly and easily. It’s simple to configure the system to view what needs done to meet your production requirements on time. With our production control system you’ll have flexibility and visibility like never before. E-Max ERP is designed to meet the sophisticated needs of a modern machine shop yet maintain the essential simplicity required by a fabricator.
