Manufacturing Manufacturing Made Simple with
Our Manufacturing Software

Jim2 Business Engine does all the hard work for you, in real time, as your products are manufactured.

Jim2 Business Engine is the perfect business software match for manufacturers, allowing you to monitor the manufacturing process live, then automatically updating inventory levels and general ledger entries on completion.

Multilevel Manufacturing

Jim2 Business Engine features multilevel manufacturing functionality (or fixed cost manufacturing) to enable businesses to manage the workflow of their complex manufacturing processes in Jim2. This can include a range of sub-assemblies when building the final end product.

By taking advantage of Jim2's multilevel manufacturing functionality to lock in the final cost of your sub-assembly at any point prior to selecting 'Manufacture' in the system, benefit from:

  • Enhanced visibility over multi-layered manufacturing processes.
  • Improved accuracy of materials planning and stock on hand once the end product is assembled.
  • Quality data captured in an integrated job management and accounting system.
  • Less administration back at the office with materials, labour, purchasing and expenses captured in one integrated system.

“Being a manufacturer of many small items that are included into our finished products, the ability to integrate the multi-level manufacturing capability into our ERP has been a game-changer.

"We can manufacture, stock and deplete items accurately, and have a thorough understanding of our raw material
and labour costs as well.

“Another added advantage to converting to multi-level manufacturing means that we can stock component items,
ready to include in the finished manufactured items. It also means that as a business we can measure and
assess our stock holdings at various locations."

Isaac Edmiston, Director of Sales/Marketing, Norweld Australia

Bill of Materials Manufacturing

  • Build production BOM’s that can include depleting, non-depleting, ‘special’ stock, and even labour.
  • Stock lookup includes quantity count by location – and for manufactured stock will show number of units pending (in manufacture).
  • Set realistic ‘due dates’ and process status on your manufacturing jobs, and use ‘Create Similar’ for cyclical manufacturing.
  • On completion of the manufacture process, you can choose to adjust final number of successful units before committing count to stock on hand.
  • On ‘manufacture’, Jim2 will automatically take the COGS value for any depleting and special stock included in manufacturing that product, and move it from (raw material) stock on hand asset accounts, then place it into the (complete product) Manufactured Stock – Stock On Hand asset account.
  • You can choose to ‘un-manufacture’ and Jim2 will return depleting and special stock used to (raw material) stock on hand count.

Dynamic and Static Kitting

  • Kitting stock is a method to 'bundle' combinations of depleting/non-depleting/labour/special and applied stock to sell as one product.
  • Dynamic kitting allows you to drag and drop additional products ad hoc into the kit frame when quoting/selling.
  • Static kitting or ‘manufacturing on the fly’ does not allow ad hoc changes to kit content when selling or quoting.
  • ‘Kitting wizard’ that allows you to select from a range of products, limiting the choices your staff can make in selecting contents for the kit.
  • Great for use in the IT industry – especially for system building – but suitable for any industry.
  • Kit selling prices can be calculated automatically by Jim2 (adds up the selling price on each stock line used in the kit) or set at the kit level.
  • Kit contents can be set/changed to ‘show or hide’ on quotes or invoices.

Serial Number Tracking

  • For quality control, vendor return or recall purposes, you can choose to trace serial numbers of specific (depleting) stock.
  • You can elect to record product serial numbers on purchase, on sale, or not at all.
  • Use Jim2 powerful and fast List search to confirm whether you have ever sold or purchased a specific serial number.
  • Stock ‘look-up’ accepts serial # scan for fast searching.

Batch Tracking

  • Define multiple product attributes, such as batch number, expiry date, that you can choose to track on specific (depleting) stock.
  • You can elect to record individual product attributes on purchase, on sale, or not at all.
  • Use the powerful and fast List search in Jim2 to confirm whether you have ever sold or purchased by any combination of attributes filtered by standard search parameters, such as sold date ranges.
  • Attributes can be defined as ‘bound’ or ‘unbound’ lists (staff must choose from a set list of attributes), integers, real numbers, dates and even to be a ‘checkbox’.
  • Attributes can be set to be ‘required’ (must be recorded on purchase or sale) and to either ‘show’ or ‘hide’ on invoice.

Attach Documents

  • Attach drawings, designs, customer requirements, and more to the manfuacturing job or manufactured stock in Jim2.
  • Add multiple documents in any file format (PDF, word, excel, etc).
  • Capture version history to keep abreast of new document updates/version history, plus security controls and tracking.
  • Find everything in one place.
  • Jim2 is available in the cloud or on premises – the choice is up to you!

"Jim2 gives us an invaluable insight into our work. By being able to create jobs from quotes, link the quote
and related emails to each job and add comments is priceless, truly nothing gets lost.

"Add to that the functionality to link drawings and documents to our manufacturing parts and the ability
to manage workflow by job status has been key to finishing jobs faster and invoicing sooner.
