Job Shop and Metal Fabrication

Job Shop and Metal Fabrication

Job shop packages generally serve manufacturers with a “V” shaped supply chain, meaning that a few standard raw materials can be turned into many different finished products.  
These companies are often machine and fabrication shops that turn bar stock, sheet metal blanks, or common resins into a variety of different finished goods.
Job shops frequently have detailed production scheduling challenges but fewer materials management functions.  As a result, job shop ERP solutions often excel in scheduling but are limited in classic planning functions such as forecasting and MRP.
Job shops often utilize actual rather than standard costing.
