New Release Provides Highly Accurate Date Commitments on Quotes

MIDDLETON, Mass.--The ability to meet tight, ever-changing deadlines can provide manufacturing companies with a competitive advantage that is especially valuable during times of economic uncertainty. According to Exact Software™, the latest iteration of its JobBOSS product empowers manufacturers to do just that. Exact JobBOSS 11 is reported to help increase customer satisfaction by giving manufacturers the ability to more accurately schedule and reschedule jobs, as well as reallocate resources and work centers. The result, the company says, is a profound impact on an organization's ability to meet customer demands by fulfilling delivery promises as quoted.

"Manufacturers are faced with unique challenges, particularly when it comes to complex assembly work," said David Lechleitner, senior product specialist for Exact JobBOSS, in a statement from the company. "If one component is delayed or a few members of the workforce aren't available at just the right time, job completion dates and profit margins suffer. JobBOSS 11 employs a demand-driven manufacturing approach for overcoming these bottlenecks, improving the result of the bottom line."

For manufacturers, Exact JobBOSS 11 reportedly makes it easy to provide customers with projected delivery during the quoting process; manage work center capacity down to the shift level and override by date; and finite-schedule bottleneck work centers, allowing better management of the work flow. It is also said to make it easy to drive the shop schedule based on material availability; use "what if" capabilities to see the impact on work center loads and delivery schedules; and gain immediate visibility into scheduled late jobs, missed deliveries and starts, unapproved jobs, jobs over estimates, and jobs waiting for materials.

ShopBOSS advanced scheduler, available with JobBOSS 11, includes an interactive dashboard designed and built specifically for the production scheduler. The dashboard provides visibility into scheduled late jobs, missed job starts, jobs running over estimates, and jobs waiting for materials, allowing the scheduler to immediately address issues needing attention.
