Step 1: Add a Production Forecast–Manufacture

After receiving an order, the enterprise must first establish a production forecast to ensure that the order is qualitatively and quantitatively determined at the source of the order, and to forecast the product quantity, start date, deadline, etc., so as to improve the accuracy of the order business.

Step 2: Add Production Plant–Manufacture

After the production forecast is made, a production plan must be established. The production plan is the overall plan of the production operation system of the enterprise, the plan of the production task, and the arrangement of the production progress of the product.

It is difficult to rely entirely on manual management. In the system, it can be done with ease, and scientific and rational production planning can be realized.

Step 3: Add Production Order–Manufacture

After the production plan is completed, the production order will be made. The production order refers to the production arrangement of the enterprise according to the demand and delivery time of the customer’s order.

Many enterprises are in the situation of multi-variety and small-batch production, and they are worried that there are many orders and difficult to manage. These situations do not exist in the production management system, and any of the following steps can be associated with one click.

Step 4: Arrange for Outsourced Processing–Manufacture

After the order is made, due to the limited production capacity of the enterprise, some parts or processes need to be outsourced.

In the process of outsourcing, attention should be paid to the statistical work of price, cost accounting, material issuance, and material recovery in the system. In order to avoid problems and wrecks, ensure that it is well documented and reduce losses.

Step 5: Arrange Production Release–Manufacture

The above four steps have been properly arranged for the preliminary work, and then the production release work must be started. The production release is to arrange the production tasks for one or more operation groups in the production workshop to start execution.

Now there is no need to go to multiple production lines to communicate one by one, just in The system will generate a release order for specific production tasks, and specify the task acceptor to view it.

Step 6: Production Dispatch Arrangement

After the team leader receives the production task, he starts to dispatch the production staff to the production staff.

The work is directly dispatched to individuals, and employees work according to the requirements of the production schedule every day. Employee wages can be calculated directly based on the number of orders dispatched.

Step 7: Carry Out Production Picking

The production staff will generate a production requisition list after receiving the task, and the leader will review and approve if there is no problem, and the warehouse staff will also receive a prompt. To pick up, reduce waiting time.

Step 8: Production Replenishment, Return, Waste

It is difficult to be precise in the process of picking materials in one step, so it is inevitable that there will be insufficient materials, excessive picking, or waste materials in the production process.

As long as the corresponding documents are added to the system and the real reasons are explained, all materials will be returned after the approval of the leader. To the warehouse, make reasonable use, avoid material waste, etc., and at the same time can make a huge contribution to reducing production costs.

Step 9: Report on Progress

In the process of production and processing, progress reporting is inevitable. In the past, companies chose to manually fill in the daily work progress every day, and after repeated verification, they reported to the leader layer by layer, which was difficult to see at a glance.

View all execution processes of production orders, track and control the production progress in real-time, adjust and arrange production activities in time, and the progress is clear at a glance.

Fully guarantee the completion of the product output and delivery deadline indicators specified in the production operation plan.

Step 10: Product Quality Inspection

After the production and processing steps are completed, the product quality inspection shall be carried out. The production management system can establish a unique mark for each product.

Regardless of sampling inspection and full inspection, each process and product quality inspection can be carried out to strictly control product quality and reduce returns and claims.

Risks, trace the root cause of product problems, and improve in a timely manner. It can completely avoid the flow of substandard products into the market and affect the competitiveness of enterprises.

Step 11: Create a Rework Order

After quality inspection, unqualified products will inevitably be produced, and unqualified products need to be reworked.

In order to manage the whole process of rework production in an orderly manner, a rework order needs to be established in the system, which is similar to repeating the above production process.

Step 12: Make a Rework Report

Since the phenomenon of rework will reduce the production efficiency of the entire production process, it is necessary to summarize and report the production rework.,t only to monitor the progress of production rework in real-time, but also to take corresponding measures for unqualified products as required to avoid repeated occurrences of similar rework, thereby Improve production efficiency and reduce costs.


The above workflow is only for reference because each factory production management process is not 100% the same. Click here to get more information.
