The DataModes CONFIGURATOR works within Sales Order Processing and the Production and Inventory Control modules to allow the operator to define the components of special items/services sold. Through the use of operator designed menus, a custom list of items needed, steps to be taken, and labor to perform may be specified directly during the entry of a quotation or sales order. Each component, step, and type of labor is defined in a special Item Cost file to increase entry speed and efficiency. The "kitting" of special assemblies can also be accomplished with the configurator.

  • Allows components to be selected individually or by product line.
  • Allows definition of special inventory items that are generically "configurable".
  • Keeps parts, labor, and special instructions in separate file for easy and consistent data entry.
  • Creates a Bill of Materials as the list of items and instructions needed to build the special item.
  • Prints the Bill of Materials which will show the items needed, the cost of each, and grand totals.
  • Allows the user to define special menus which allow selection of a special item, call another menu, or list a product line from which to choose components.
  • Specifies valid quantity ranges during menu configuration for certain items and limitations can be set to the selection of one or many items.
  • Used in conjunction with the Bill of Materials module, Item Cost module, and Shop Floor Control module.
  • Updates custom item lists through the Bill of Materials screen by adding, deleting, or changing items.
  • Operates in a true multi-user environment.
  • Functions as a separate program or can be called during Sales Order Entry.
