The reporting feature provides a comprehensive view of manufacturing costs, allowing you to identify areas for cost reduction and optimize resource planning. By tracking and analyzing data on manufacturing efficiency, it’s easy to identify areas where resources are being over or underutilized and make adjustments accordingly.

Manufacturing insights help you make data-driven decisions with easy-to-read reports that can easily be exported and viewed on the go.

Comprehensive production overview

Track and analyze the costs associated with your production processes to better understand where improvements can be made. Manufacturing analytics help you explore the cost of each operation, reduce costs by optimizing production processes, and track production cost per unit and price per hour of operations by time and resource.

Manufacturing cost overview 

  • Production cost per unit
  • Production cost breakdown (materials/operations)

Resource & material usage

  • Cost differences (planned vs. actual)
  • Resource usage over time
  • Material usage in BOMs
