What VISUAL is not

To become leaner, improve productivity, increase throughput, reduce costs and become more competitive, most will agree that the focus of your attention should be on optimizing engineering & manufacturing operations and not the accounting department.

But the majority of the accounting-centric ERP solutions you encounter today will probably include only the most basic manufacturing functionality. They will often "throw up a smoke screen" to divert your attention away from the manufacturing aspects of your business, and instead focus on the accounting functionality.

After implementation, you may discover that your ERP lacks full integration, and is being used only for accounts, inventory and purchasing, but not used at all by production, who still continue to use their system of standalone excel spreadsheets and manual procedures. This scenario is very common with users of accounting-centric ERP solutions in an order-driven manufacturing environment.

What VISUAL is

VISUAL is different, it is NOT "just another Accounting / ERP System", instead it is a manufacturing-centric solution with advanced scheduling, manufacturing-execution and data collection features and functions designed to help boost your operational productivity, reduce lead-times, increase throughput and increase your profits.

VISUAL is a fully integrated, easy-to-implement, real-time software solution that provides engineering & manufacturing businesses with advanced capabilities that enable them to start improving performance right away.

Previously known as VISUAL Manufacturing, VISUAL provides you with quick and painless implementation, and a rapid return on your investment. Infor VISUAL offers a low cost of ownership, is easy to learn and easy to use and can be fully implemented in 90 days or less.

Affordable and easy to use, VISUAL incorporates:

  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
  • Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
  • Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)
  • Quality Management
  • Lean Manufacturing
  • Project Management
  • Document Management
  • Workflow Management

VISUAL quickly converts customer requirements into manufacturing requirements and then schedules and executes them efficiently.

The lean concepts designed into VISUAL since release 1.0, improve workflow and help eliminate redundant or wasteful steps that users may encounter with other manufacturing software.

In other ERP systems, you will be forced to open multiple windows to view and manage manufacturing data such as the; B.O.M, Process Routing, Material Availability, Job Costing, Progress/Status. In VISUAL, all of this and much more is available through the one screen - The Manufacturing Window, saving you precious time and mouse clicks.

This approach dramatically improves visibility & productivity and helps you quickly identify and resolve bottlenecks, schedule effectively, and price jobs more accurately.

From quotation, through manufacturing, to shipping, invoicing and preparing your company's financial statements, VISUAL will help you plan and execute your business easier, faster and smarter.

Who VISUAL is for...

We are often asked Do you have customers who manufacture the same products as us ? - Well its really not important WHAT specific industry your are in, or WHAT you produce, what is important is HOW you produce and your business type or order-mode.

Visual is optimized to cater for Order-Driven engineering and manufacturing businesses which include:

  • Job Shop or Custom Manufacturer
  • Engineer & Build-to-Order
  • Standard Product, Build-to-Order
  • Maintenance and Repairs (MRO)
  • Project-Based Manufacturing
  • Mixed Mode, Order Driven

Across the world, VISUAL is deployed in thousands of businesses and in many different industries. Although not designed for a specific industry type, there are some which are more suitable and work straight out of the box with no requirement for program customization - Vanilla ERP.

  • Aerospace & Defence
  • Automotive
  • Metal Fabrication
  • Heavy Fabrication
  • High Tech & Electronics
  • Industrial Equipment & Machinery
  • Tool & Mould Making
  • Marine Engineering
  • Medical Device & Instrument
  • Oilfield & Gas Equipment
  • Repair and Maintenance
  • Specialty Vehicles

Forecast or Order Driven...

The planning and execution needs of order-driven and forecast-driven businesses are quite different. Forecast-driven and make-to-stock manufacturers commence work BEFORE receiving firmed orders / delivery dates, and their ability to deliver on-time is primarily constrained by the availability of raw materials.

In this kind of environment the MRP/MPS traditional planning method works well, completely ignoring your capacity, but providing the required material demand planning information.

Order-driven businesses normally only spring into action after receiving a confirmed order, and need to 'gear-up' and respond quickly. They are therefore almost always constrained firstly by their available capacity and secondly by material availability.

Using MRP/MPS in an order-driven environment quickly leads to bottlenecks, delays, inflated costs, and hopelessly unworkable schedules, as what is more important to this kind of business is the ability to schedule work considering BOTH a finite supply of capacity and material availability.

In addition, the Order-Driven business often has advanced functional needs not found in traditional MRP/MPS software including;

  • Finite capacity planning
  • Actual job costing
  • Purchasing directly to a job
  • Define & capture setup and run times
  • Define materials by their dimensions
  • Multiple finished parts for a single BOM
  • Manufacture without part numbers
  • Adding or changing a job after release
