Product Definition

Individual companies will generate revenue from one or more identifiable products that represent either the goods or services provided by them.


Raw material and purchased components represent additional "products" that are of interest.


These, along with other items, such as consumables, represent identifiable segments of the products that will be recorded in the database.


Orbitall Jigsaw

Like many similar software solutions Orbitall records information about each identifiable product in a database table designed to have an identification code as the primary identifier (maximum size of 30 characters).


Some further features of our solution that might be relevant comprise:


Quality Control

Facilities that enable the recording of "quality control" metrics that may be divided into inspection and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) requirements.


Product Inventory

Individual settings for each product code identifies whether an inventory position is to be maintained, and if so the level of traceability that is required. Product inventory positions are related to an transaction audit trail that provides users with a comprehensive understanding of the various business activities that each represents.


Bill-Of-Material
Unlimited list of components and their related requirement for "manufacture" of a designated sub-assembly or sales product volume assists the ability to establish product costing, using any one of a number of available acquisition costing figures. Detailed "manufacturing" instructions, with associated timings, extend the costing feature to potentially incorporate cost of labour.


Muliple Unit-of-Measure
Up to ten codes may be linked to a product - this permits product to be sold or purchased in any one of these using the same identifier. Facilities for the conversion of inventory between different unit-of-measure codes is applicable provided a global or product specific conversion factor is defined. An example of a global conversion factor would be gallons to pints where the factor of 8 is a universally recognised value. Product specific conversion factors may alo be identified that, for example, permit a bar of metal with a given cross section to be converted from a weight to a nominal length (as is the case in engineering).


Each client may require further additional product details to be recorded and Orbitall provides the ability to identify:


Bill-of-Material - unlimited list of components required to manufacture a defined production batch size for the product.


Manufacturing process instructions - a detailed description of the individual operations that are a reflection of the production process.


Customer and Supplier specific pricing and product code reference and alternative description.


Products are associated with a category code (site specific set of entries) for primary classification and individual users may group any number of category codes together to identify a set of products that would be of interest to them. Consequently both of these elements may be used to filter the list of product codes that users might wish to review in the product list window as well as many others.
