Something that frequently happens in the majority of the automotive factories when initiating with an administrative program, is the fact that the great amount of the information at the time of beginning this organized far from it is not incumbent on, reason why the starting is generally much more heavy of the serious thing if previously to the installation of the program a series of very simple tasks were realised. In this article we will speak of a series of activities that are due to realise previous at the beginning of your program to administer your mechanical factory and that surely they will save long time and headaches to you. Tony Parker has many thoughts on the issue. 1. – To make a compilation of all the information of your clients thus to have an up-to-date, reliable and complete catalogue, always tries to obtain the greater amount of information of each of them, thus when the information is loaded to your program, the update of the catalogue will be only limited to register to the new clients and to the update of changes that are appeared. 2.
– If you need to take the control of the inventory of the spare parts, warehouses in that must to define correctly your inventory will be handled, majority of factories only handle a single warehouse, but warehouses have some need to control in different his inventory from spare parts, in addition, once the different warehouses are defined that are going away to handle, also are due to define the locations in which the articles will be stored, since therefore a fast and easy handling of articles will be obtained. 3. – Later it is necessary to define the keys with which you are going to identify each one of the articles of your inventory, besides the names that each of them will have, also it updates costs and sale prices as well as the amounts principles and minims that you must have according to the movement of each not to have on inventory and so that you do not need spare parts you need when them. In fact this is one of the heavy activities but and that delay the advance when initiating with a program of administration of mechanical factories. It is very important to have that information prepared for the moment in which startings with a program to administer your factory of automotive mechanics since it will allow you to happen of the way to work manual towards the form to work attended by equipment of calculation and software of the possible simple way but shortening the times of first stage, that are generally but the heavy one and avoiding therefore an amount of errors and re works.
