Tip of the Week: Have you defined your KPIs?

Key Performance Indicators measure how effectively your performance objectives are being achieved.

  • Have you defined KPIs for your company?
  • Are you measuring them effectively?
  • Is everyone in your company aware of what the KPIs are?

If you haven’t already done so, consider tying personal performance objectives directly to the company’s performance objectives. Doing so can greatly increase the likelihood that the company’s goals will be met.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Inventory Period Balance Freeze

This new feature provides the ability to freeze period-end balances at the end of a fiscal period.

This enhancement provides clients the ability to store the opening/ending on hand balance for each Inventory period at the Item (IIM), Warehouse/Item (IWI) and Lot/Location (ILI) levels.

This information can then be used for inventory tracking and valuation purposes, as well as other ad hoc financial and audit reporting requirements.

One key benefit is that tracking the opening/ending/period balance for each inventory period can give users insights into the levels of inventory for each item, item/warehouse and item/warehouse/lot/location combination.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Make Your ERP Work FOR You - Streamline Your Processes

Such lofty goals you had when you implemented your ERP system. It was going to be like pressing the “Easy Button”…  then it wasn’t.

What happened? In some cases, decisions were made to implement the system “just like we used to run our old system”. Great idea? Not so much. Your business changes, and your business software needs to change as well.

Are you using the ERP system, but everything seems cumbersome and takes more time than its worth? 

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Have you looked at streamlining your processes?
  • Can you automate a step or two and eliminate some manual keying?
  • Can you add barcoding to avoid keying in some information altogether?
  • How about automating the printing of some reports?

Now is the time to sit down and really review the steps required to complete the task and think out of the box a bit. Soon you can develop your own streamlined process to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Inventory Transactions

You can define internal trade relationships between enterprise units or individual warehouses of the same logistic company for the transfer of material, labor, or other costs between warehouses, and to generate invoices for these without using sales orders and purchase orders. For example, you can use this to transfer goods between warehouses in different countries.

You can define warehouse surcharges, which are added to the actual costs of the goods either when the goods are issued from a warehouse or when the goods are received.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Operational Inefficiencies

Two big sources of inefficiencies in manufacturing are paper and spreadsheets. I know that you love ‘em, but they are the cause of more problems than you probably realize. Think of how long it takes you to get paper based data into the hands of those who can do something valuable with the data.

  • Is the information captured correctly?
  • Can everyone access the information?
  • Is this an accurate representation of what’s going on across all operations?

Make your shop floor paperless and put systems in place that talk to one another and automatically pull and push data to and from your ERP so that you can look in one place for all the information you need to run your business effectively.

If you’re not doing this today, you might as well be burning money.
