Production/Manufacturing Tracking

The strength of the system is the ability to track the manufacture of the products, including multiple machines and outside processing.  This is the part of e-Insight ERP that separates us from the competition – we handle the production flow for this environment.

Bill of Materials:

  • Multi-level possible
  • Enter Quantity required, Routing, Lead times, Alternate numbers, effective date, discontinued date, material cost
  • Enter Reference Notes as needed.
  • Generate Exploded BoM reports
  • Handles simple ‘kitting’ or complex combinations


The Routing portion of the system allows you to define the flow through the system for your production – what operation is first, where the part goes next, and even to outside processors.

There is a lot more to the Production portion of e-Insight ERP that has been described above.  One very important portion is the Active MRP – instead of having to constantly run an MRP calculation, the system can be configured to actively update the MRP as Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, Invoicing, Receiving and Shipping are going on.  This interactive process sets e-Insight ERP apart from all other applications in this price range.  This allows you the user to check what needs to be ordered immediately instead of having to run a process that could take hours in order to get the results that you will see immediately.

Additionally, if you wish, e-Insight ERP can be configured to run a manual MRP process, or re-generate an MRP from the interactive MRP at any time. Flexibility is the key to how we have implemented the MRP process within this solution.
