MISys Level 3

For most manufacturing companies, labor is the most significant component of production costs. Accurately collecting and analyzing production labor costs has, until now, been out of reach for most manufacturers. MISys SAE Level 3 changes all that by implementing production work centers: areas of the plant where some specific activity takes place.

By merging work centers with bills of material from MISys SAE Level 1, Level 3 creates bills of manufacturing; high-powered bills of material that document not only the materials needed to complete an assembly, but the step-by-step operations that must be performed.

When production starts and continues from step to step, MISys SAE records the actual labor expended for each operation, together with any extra material consumed or overhead incurred. On completion the actual production cost (material, labor, and overhead) is passed to the accounting system.
