  • Role-Based Browse Collections
    You can synchronize the production plan with your organization with role-based browse collections.
    QAD understands that it is not only important for your production planners and schedulers to have a toolset available that helps efficiently plan and schedule, but it is equally important to provide personnel within your manufacturing organizations with the right quantities to support the production plan. Personnel in your organization need to ensure that the right purchased materials are lined up on time in the right quantities to support the production plan.
    To this end, QAD offers six browse collections that synchronize your buyers, material expediters, shop floor operators/supervisors and material handlers with your planners and schedulers.
    You can use the following role-based browse collections for real-time retrieval of production order component availability, maintenance, manipulation, viewing, and reporting of production details:
    Release Production Orders by Production Line is typically used by shop floor operators/supervisors.
    Manage Materials for Production Line is typically used by material handlers or the department for which they work
    Release Production Orders by Work Center is typically used by shop floor operators/supervisors.
    Manage Materials for Work Center is typically used by material handlers or the department for which they work
    Monitor Material Shortages is typically used by material expediters and/or material planners.
    Purchase Direct Materials is typically used by buyers.
    The browse collections let you perform material component shortage checks across your selected range of work orders and order statuses. Whether you need to see material shortages two days into the future or six months, the solution lets you quickly identify and analyze the shortage, providing you with early detection and response capability.
