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.
