Generate crops from sales orders
The Production Planning Module allows you to generate a crop directly from a sales order. It will check whether you have the production inventory required for the crop, apply the relevant production process template to the crop and give you start and end dates for production. You can check on expected production quantities and use wastage factors to determine how much excess will need to be produced in order to obtain the desired amount of grown product.
Manage production costs and staffing levels
Once you have defined your unique production processes and methods, the Production Planning Module will tell you what production inventory is required to generate a crop. It will also calculate the labour required to produce the crop, together with other cost inputs incurred in the production process. The system will then process all of this data to give you an accurate cost per unit for the grown crop. You can also forecast the labour required both for crops in production and for crops awaiting production, allowing you to monitor and anticipate your staffing requirement over a given period.
Daily or weekly task reports
From the moment you put a crop into production, the Production Planning Module will automatically generate and schedule the production and maintenance tasks required to produce that crop. You can produce daily, weekly and other periodical production reports so you know what has to be done, by whom and when.
As you grow in size, or develop new sales channels, Growmaster will grow and diversify with you.
