The printing market has a very particular dynamic. On the one hand, we have a custom product, whose production depends on detailed specifications of the customer. On the other hand, we have a wide variety of materials to buy, third part to hire, hit machine for each new operation and the need to work efficiently to stay competitive in the market.
Therefore, the Metrics has developed a solution to help your company control the production of the third part.
For example, a printing that does not perform application of UV varnish with reserve and sold a magazine that needs this service, you can now outsource it with total control of the material that you sent and returned, and knowing at the end of the process, which will be the amount to be paid for the service.
The same way, a printing that outsources the assembly of its products, you can manage the shipment and return of semi-finished products using this module.
In the creation of the estimate, the system calculates which activities should be outsourced, what is the cost to perform the tasks and make a comparative between internally (if the printer has the resources) to do versus externally, helping the printing to decide the environment more profitable.
Outsourcing Control module allows you to control external mounting and industrialization of products and their raw materials, and enabling management of product losses and waste of raw materials resulting from the industrialization process and assembly.
Integration with other modules
Outsourcing Control module allows the exchange of information with the Estimate module, which generates production orders, and the Metrics Planner, which allows the planning of these production orders.
A production order can have several items of improvement. Referrals may, in turn, generate multiple returns. Outsourcing Control module allows the control of such submissions and returns, and payment of providers who performed services in processing the goods supplied.
