The Core Software is one of the
cornerstone products within the FeneVision family. The Core software
provides valuable production control and information to both plant
management and direct labor. The modular software is deployed on
networked PCs to schedule, optimize, execute and track IG, window and
door manufacturing. The Core software can either interface to your
existing business systems (order entry, invoicing, purchasing, etc.) via
a custom import/export module or operate as a stand-alone package.
The FeneVision family of software products in your facility will
- Complete control and visibility of your
production from the minute the order is entered until the ordered
item is shipped.
- Flexible production scheduling considering
machine capacities and unexpected production problems.
- Reduction of your work in progress.
- Instantaneous status of daily production
allowing management to be proactive and minimize bottlenecks.
- Graphical visual feedback at each work cell to
production workers, permitting units to be assembled consistently
with less rework.
- Graphical visual feedback dramatically reduces
employee training/familiarization time and any dependence on
remembering assembly rules.
- Rejected unit status at any manufacturing cell
is known immediately and can be submitted for remake.
- Bar-coding of units and transport carts minimize
lost production and increase the utilization of plant assets.
- Seamless integration with your proven business
Order Entry / Quotation - Quotations and Orders are entered through
the integrated Order Entry Module. This easy to use interface allows
quotations to be turned into orders at any time simply by changing the
type of the order. A configurable option wizard allows different options
to be presented for each unique model that can be ordered. The ability
to customize validation rules eliminates costly errors made during order
entry. FeneVision allows order acknowledgments to be electronically
faxed or e-mailed directly to your clients.
Production Scheduling - Visual scheduling tools allow orders to be
scheduled considering plant configuration and capacity. User defined
order and model views facilitate the scheduling process. Within a
production schedule batches can be defined so that efficient production
flow can be obtained on the shop floor. Finalizing a schedule allows the
user to visually see the production sequence and make adjustments if
Releasing Schedules to the Shop Floor - Releasing a schedule to
manufacturing is simply done by selecting a schedule that has been
finalized and pressing the Release button. After a schedule has been
released machine files, reports and labels can be generated. Any open
architecture machinery can be interfaced to. During the release function
lineal optimization is performed and the amount of raw materials
required to produce the schedule is captured so that the inventory can
be updated properly.
Shipping Management - Truck routes are easily built by selecting
orders to be included on the truck from within the Route Builder.
Shipping paperwork for the truck can then be printed. The Route Builder
provides an integrated link to the FeneVision Tracking Stations used at
the shipping docks.
Reports & Labels - FeneVision was designed with the philosophy of
minimizing all paperwork on the shop floor with the realization that bar
code labels and some reports will still be required to facilitate
production. The amount of paperwork used on your shop floor is totally
in your control with FeneVision.
Purchasing & Receiving - FeneVision's integrated Purchasing Module
provides the ability to generate purchase orders based on actual raw
material usage. This tool provides the user with the ability to fully
define vendors, raw materials, and reorder points. In addition to
generating purchase orders, this tool provides a receiving function as
well as tools for cycle counts.
Inventory Control - The system has an inventory module that provides
the information to help manage your raw material stock as well as
accurate costing of orders.
Invoicing - Invoices are generated directly from the application.
Bill of Materials - The heart of the system is the flexible Bill of
Material module. This module allows product models to be built and
accurate bill of materials dynamically generated when orders are
entered. An embedded Basic editor and compiler provide unlimited
Pricing - Unparalleled pricing capabilities have been designed into
the software to meet the diverse pricing methods used within this
industry. Any number of price books can be configured in the system. A
wide range of pricing methods is available including grid pricing for
both models and options.
Accounting Interfaces - FeneVision was designed as an open
architecture system allowing seamless interfaces with accounting /
business systems. Interfaces exist for many accounting packages. If we
don't have an interface for your open architecture accounting or
business system we will develop it!
Machine Interfaces - Any open architecture machinery can be
interfaced to. Each of these machines has a unique interface to allow
the maximum flexibility of routing material through the shop floor.
Interfaces exist for all of the leading manufacturer's equipment. If we
don't have an interface for your open architecture machinery we will
