Any product in the Inventory ledger may have a Bill of Materials defined, allowing for the creation, storage, and editing of a list of components.

The generation of a Work Order can check stock levels, and if desired, register or reserve stock components contained in the bill of materials. Automatic component requistioning can also be established for component stock items found to be below minimum levels.

BOMs can be configured at a single level, or may contain sub-assembly or nesting.

LILAC Manufacturing - Production, Processing, and Scheduling
Plan, Track, Measure, Monitor and Display
Material Use

Combined with all core Order Processing, Invoicing, and Accounting Database functions of LILAC.
Work Order - A Production and Scheduling Control Document
A Work Order can be produced on paper, card, and displayed digitally. It is the control document for manufacturing or production.

LILAC captures data in production environments through any combination of scanning, touch pads, or keyboard entry. This data is fed into a Work Order document to regulate a production proccess, seamlessly providing an electronic paper trail for reporting and analysis, as well as a permanent, historical chain of custody.

This process provides the ability to view progress without the need for interruption or a paper log.

This process is suitable for many applications in any industry.
Multiple Work Orders Displayed - Quality Control
Work Orders may be complimented one, or by several large screen live display boards located through out a production, dispatch, and office area. These digital boards display any variation of what is seen below, suitable to your enterprise, and may be up to 1.8m in diameter.

Large screen live display may show any number of active or in-active Work Orders, detailing any information relevant to production. This allows monitoring of material use, the status of a work order, part-finished products, shipping dates, and other information relevant to production. The live display can be coloured coded to prioritise tasks due for completion or shipping.

Bill of Materials (BOM) & Material Requirements Planning (MRP) - Product Structure

Product Codes
Assembly Processes
Integrated CAD
Technical presentation of the goods to be manufactured, including provision for codes, descriptions, BoM listings, quantities, dimensions, and if required schematic diagrams with dimensioning are seamlessly integrated using a LILAC QCAD module.
Standard Costing & Purchase Variations
In manufacturing accounting contexts the use of very dynamic costing strategies such as Last Cost or Average Cost is discouraged because of the resulting instability of derived costs in Bill of Materials and Material Requirements processing.

Lennox Computer recommend the use of a Standard Costing regime for Manufacturing applications where the cost of a component or raw materials is established at a fixed value, and maintained at that figure for some substantial period of weeks, months, or years as appropriate.

Differences from Standard Cost encountered during purchasing operations are brought to account in the Trading Ledger as "Purchasing Variations", and the landed cost used for Inventory, Cost of Sales, and BoM & MRP purposes is always the Standard Cost.
On-Site Barcode Printing
In-house barcode printing makes it possible to integrate materials, manufacturing process, and completed stock, (storage, sale, and delivery) with the accounting database.

Each Product, Componet, and Process within LILAC has a function button - Print Barcode Label.

LILAC prints adhesive barcodes and labels of various sizes on-site. Certain manuacturing processes such as powder coating or other surface treatment require tag with hole, tag with tail barcodes which are easily printed and removable when necessary.

Barcodes are printed in various formats on paper, polymer plastic, or cloth stationary. Barcodes link components, products, time frames, and storage during the manufacturing process, or a number of ordered sequence or work activities/centres.

Scan Job Begin, and Scan Job Complete may take place once, or on multiple occasions at different work centres. This is a secure and seamless method of Work Centre tracking.

A scanning device will not accept an incorrect or incomplete process, an error message is displayed. When processes are correctly followed a record is created of material inputs, time, and quality control assiting with warranty and chain of custody requirements which may be referred to at anytime.
