17 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Order Processing Menu

18 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order

19 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Header, no customer selected) Hot keys are available at every data entry field

20 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Header, selecting customer cont.) You can either page down or jump to a customer by typing in a few first letters of the customer name.

21 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Header, selecting customer cont2.)

22 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, season style field) One of the systems most powerful features is the Finished Goods Flexible Key. It is a 19 position alphanumeric field that allows you to break up your inventory numbering scheme in various ways. For this example we are using Season, Style and Color.

23 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, normal size ranges) The next field is the size ranges. The following example demonstrates a typical Small Medium Large combination.

24 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, larger linear size ranges cont.) You may have a size range that can not fit onto the screen. The system will allow you to scroll to the right for more size buckets.

25 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, larger linear size ranges cont2.) You may have a size range that can not fit onto the screen. The system will allow you to scroll to the right for more size buckets.

26 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, matrix size ranges) The most complex garments to automate are those than have multiple dimensions such as slacks, tailored shirts and bras.

27 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP - Enter New Order (Detail, matrix size ranges cont2.) A matrix scheme allows maximum product flexibility. Data entry fields are not accessible for size ranges that are not sold or produced.

28 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular)

29 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont6.) Item summary information is displayed.

30 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont7.) One key stroke is needed for more details.

31 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont8.) Now lets look at the details of a more complex item.

32 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont9.) Notice that the system is intelligent to not show sizes that only have zero quantities. This makes searching easier for the user.

33 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont10.) You can also hit a hot key to jump to the Global Cut & Sold inquiry to look up all history for this style.

34 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont11.) You can select any record to find out more audit details.

35 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (by Order, Regular cont12.) You can select any record to find out more audit details. In this example we are able to see that user “brian” entered 20 pieces of item color White for order number 1232 on 07/25/2000. The same information can be viewed for any other transaction that effects quantities.

36 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Cancel (Order Inquiry, cont7.) The audit tables are very powerful and track every single hit to the database. In this circumstance it shows that user “brian” entered an order for 20 pieces and then canceled the 20 piece on the same day. The total equals 0 but there is information behind the scenes.

37 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (using Pick Tickets as work orders for embellishment, VCC) Some companies use Pick Tickets to have finished blanks removed from inventory and then tracked through the embellishment process simulating a production work order.

38 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (using Pick Tickets as work orders for embellishment, VCC cont.) A hot key can then be selected to see how the items went through the process in order to be shipped to the customer.

39 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (using Pick Tickets as work orders for embellishment, VCC cont2.) Certain step sequences can automatically occur when a system function is initiated. For example, the printing of a work order (sequence #2) happened automatically. Other events may occur during user entry or barcode scanning of the work order (in this case the Pick Ticket).

40 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (viewing attached Designs) ############ ############ A hot key is available to see the designs attached to an item.

41 Accelerated Computer Technologies OP – Order Inquiry (viewing attached Designs cont.) ############ In this example there are two embroidered designs.

64 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Component Information (cont5.)

65 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Component Information (cont6.) The system allows you to also state whether you measure inventory items by roll as opposed to just total yardage.

66 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Component Information (cont7.) MRP Planning for raw materials and trim begins with a lead time being associated to each item. This information is then used in calculating inventory balances (theoretical and actual).

67 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials One of the most critical, powerful yet easy to use features of the system is the Bill Of Materials program.

68 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials (cont.) The same component is listed three times tying the Green fabric to the Green style, the Ivory Fabric to the Ivory style and the Yellow fabric to the yellow style.

69 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials (cont2.) However a component only needs to be listed once if it is used for all color combinations of the style.

70 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials (cont3.) The component also needs to be identified once for each size permutation. The final entry for a style that has three colors and three styles looks like …

71 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials (cont4.) Some extra features such as manufacturing part and excess yields.

72 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN – Bill Of Materials (cont5.) Hitting a hot key brings up possible manufacturing parts.

88 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical

89 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont.) The system first lets you take a snapshot of the current inventory positions since transactions can still take place while counting and data entry occurs.

90 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont2.) Various reports can be used for the collection of inventory count data.

91 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont3.) You can enter 1 or 2 physical counts.

92 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont4.) Then run an edit list to review your entries, or discrepancies between a 1 st and 2 nd count.

93 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont5.) After making any corrections you then run a variance report to compare the archive quantity, count entry and the current system on-hand amounts.

94 Accelerated Computer Technologies IN - Physical (cont6.) The variance report will then calculate the adjustments it will make. The user then runs the Physical Update option to complete the cycle.

95 Accelerated Computer Technologies Main Menu

96 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Production Control Menu

97 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Issue Cutting Orders The user can issue a manual cut (work order) or have the system automatically create the cut from data captured from customer orders in Order Entry.

98 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – WIP Inquiry

99 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – WIP Inquiry (cont.) We begin with size level data but much more information is available with the touch of a key.

100 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – WIP Inquiry (cont2.) Unlimited routing steps can exist. Each step can be associated to a different location. The default lead time and schedule dates can be changed in the Scheduling System

101 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – WIP Inquiry (cont3.) Unlimited Comments are available.

102 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – WIP Inquiry (cont4.) You can view the one or more customer orders that a cut (work order) is allocated to.

103 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Allocate Production This option is chosen if you want to manually allocate cuts to one or more customer orders.

104 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Allocate Production (cont.) The system will assist the user in finding the one or more customer orders that can be allocated to by selections such as order date, cancel date and customer priority.

105 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling

106 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont.) The system allows you to schedule any of the (unlimited) routing steps that your company creates.

107 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont2.) You can also break down the scheduling for specific styles and also include other routing steps.

108 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont3.) Initially the user can schedule for any plant (and a location within the plant if it exists.)

109 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont4.) The user can then begin scheduling from any start date and also review weekly or daily schedules.

110 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont5.) You then select any items that you wish to change the planned (default) schedule based on the lead times associated with each routing step.

111 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont6.) The user can split a production order in addition to simply moving a schedule to different dates.

112 Accelerated Computer Technologies PC – Plant Scheduling (cont7.) As an option the user can also change the plant that production was originally assigned to.
