Sabe supports make-to-stock, make-to-order, assemble-to-order, configure-to-order, and engineer-to-order environments and provides the shop floor with complete visibility to all material and resource demands.  Sabe’s manufacturing workbenches provide complete visibility and control within a single set of comprehensive tools.

 

Execution

  • Work Order
    • Continuity with Engineering - system level requirements to enforce the use of valid, effective, and released Structures and exception tools to identify Work Orders using outdated definitions.
    • Work Order Pegging - Work Orders may have fully dependent lower level children which maintain consistency to meet their parent's requirements.
  • Work Order Materials
    • Critical Materials - Work Order Materials which must be available in order to release a Work Order Release to the Shop Floor and which are immediately reserved for the newly released Work Order.
    • Substitutions - easily view and utilize available Work Order material substitutions to reduce material constraints and balance inventory levels.
    • Unplanned Material Issues - make unplanned material issues to Work Orders and record full quantity and cost variances.
  • Work Order Operations
    • Tools - constrain Operations on Tools, issue and record Tool usage, and return Tools at completion.
    • Operations - control the flow of Work Order Operation execution via the statuses of required Work Centers and that of preceding Operations.    
    • Load Balancing - balance Work Center queue across multiple Work Stations based upon current load, Work Station statuses, and Operation setup type.
  • Production Reporting
    • Post in Summary - easily post material and labor to an entire Work Order with a simple transaction.
    • Post in Detail - comprehensively post specific material usage, scrap, returns, and labor to Work Orders to build complete history and resource variances.
    • Post en masse - post Work Order production en masse with barcode support to streamline high transaction manufacturing environments.
  • Repetitive Manufacturing
    • Paperless - simple complete back-flush of material and labor to support paperless manufacturing.
    • On Demand - Pull Manufacturing to support automatic kitting and assembly and related consumption of materials and labor.

Visibility

  • Extensive workbenches to examine the complete state of the production environment with exhaustive filtering and ordering and with embedded workflow to immediately monitor and control all aspects of the production environment.
  • Staging and Releasing
    • Align Production with Business Goals - strategically prioritize the queue of unreleased Work Orders to maximize throughput, customer satisfaction, and revenue.
    • Optimize Production - review unreleased top level and dependent Work Orders and associated material and labor constraints to optimize their release to the production floor.
  • Production
    • Control Production - comprehensively view all released Work Orders and manage their related material, labor, Work Center and Tool requirements; control component reservations, allocations, and movement and the distribution of manufactured Items.
    • Manage the Shop Floor - complete view of the Shop Floor environment, including Work Order Operations in process, Work Center queues and the result of the Shop Floor Load Balancer.  Operations may be manually or automatically re-queued to make the most effective use of available resources.
  • Analytics
    • Production History - review the complete history of production to analyze historical variances in production quantities, costs, and time. Easily drill down to view material and labor consumption variances for each Work Order.
    • Projected Cost Variances - view consumed and projected remaining Work Order Labor and Materials costs to find and correct projected costs overruns before they affect profitability.
    • Consumption History - evaluate material and labor variances over resources and Structures to determine both general trends and specific exceptions in order to minimize future variances and to aid in root cause analyses.
