Alere Manufacturing (formerly TIW Workshop) is a package designed for small to midsize companies. It has a broad range and depth of features that make it extremely appealing to a wide variety of businesses.
- Make to Order
- Job Shops
- Engineer to Order
- Make to Stock
Since day-to-day processes are important to running your company, the design of WorkShop has focused on making them as easy as possible.
- An exceptionally strong BOM processor allows entire indented bills of material to be graphically constructed on one screen using Treevision.
- The finite scheduler handles forward or backward scheduling to the nearest minute or hour and runs extremely fast.
- The MRP report supports both bucketed and bucketless planning and can be synchronized with the finite scheduler to provide JIT material planning.
- Work order can be released, materials issued, standard labor posted, finished goods placed in inventory, and the order closed with a single button.
WorkShop includes all the functionality that you might expect in a sophisticated manufacturing package. What you might not expect are the carefully designed “extras” that make WorkShop work in your business.
For example, the material list on a work order can be edited to add new components, change quantities, delete unneeded items, all the while keeping the inventory allocations up to date.
