Machine Builder Shops

Machine Builder Shop Software

Challenges you face

You produce a wide variety of sophisticated parts, machines and systems that need to go through various departments in your shop. You have many components, material requirements, hardware and other items that need to come together to make your units. You have hundreds of jobs routing through different disciplines at any one time, many of them multi-level assemblies requiring scores of travelers. With so many operations ongoing, along with associated material and components, you need shop floor scheduling, tracking and integrated material planning all in one ERP solution.

JobBOSS is your solution. JobBOSS Shop Management Software provides the visibility so crucial to machine builders. It cuts run time by providing visibility both on the shop floor and into the business overall. It gives you the real-time data and financial indicators necessary to run your business profitably. From workflow management to job status, from changes/additions on the fly to preparing for ISO audits, JobBOSS puts it all at your fingertips. It’s the competitive advantage you need.

Why machine builders prefer JobBOSS

  • An unlimited number of levels in the Bill of Material to support the large number of components and sub-components typical of custom machine building. The JobBOSS BOM Import Module can pull in bills of material from Solidworks™.
  • Powerful cost analysis tools to give accurate information (either detailed or in summary) for both completed jobs and jobs still in the shop.
  • Real-time access to information on the status of assembly jobs including actual versus estimated hours for each component.
  • Links between workstations, materials and outside processes for simplifying complex scheduling requirements.
  • Flexible purchasing which allows buying material direct to the job versus to inventory, and the ability to add material on the fly and cost it to the job.
