The Innovation Never Stops!
Posted By: 
Friday, October 25, 2013

The rules of social media says, limit the self promotion. Forget that! Ascent continues to innovate and refine. Our newest innovation, DWO, will allow Ascent to support the refurbish and repair market place.

DWO – Deconstruct Work Order. This new feature in Ascent is primarily for those customers who are new to Ascent, who have migrated completed finished goods over to Ascent that are serialized, or for those clients who “sold” finished goods in their legacy system and whose customers have returned those items to them.

What it does: this allows you to take an item that is a BOM-non Phantom item which is in your inventory (whether it is serialized or not) and deconstruct/disassemble it. It removes the finished product out of inventory and it puts back into inventory the components.

Normally, if you had built that item in Ascent, you could just use the credit or reverse type on a PWO. But, if it was built on some legacy system, you wouldn’t have the work order and all the associated details. By creating a PWO in Ascent and changing the type to “dwo”, assuming that you have a valid bill of material for that item and that the end item exists in your inventory, you would select “Complete PWO”, it will ask you for the serial# of the item you are deconstructing (if a serialized item), and where it exists, and will then ask you for the components, their lot/location, and their serial#s, if appropriate.

When is this available? Now.

FEATURED PRESS RELEASE

Happy to Make the Cover of Manufacturing Technology Insights

Inventory models for calculating reorder points and optimal order quantities have been in existence long before the dawn of software era. When the first affordable automobile, Ford Model T was rolled off the assembly line, manufacturers were already reaping the financial benefits of inventory management by determining the answers to ‘When to deliver?’ and ‘How many to deliver?’ However, it seems an irony today—in the days of advanced information technology—that many companies are still not taking advantage of these fundamental inventory models. Organizations tend to have several systems to manage their business and often run their entire operations on excel spreadsheets which make activities such as assets tracking, equipment scheduling, or documenting essential incident details, snowball into their biggest headaches. This is a challenge that was comprehended beforehand by AscentERP. Co-founded by industry veterans Michael Trent, CEO, Shaun McInerney, President, and Akbar Rafiuddin, CTO—who bring years of experience in manufacturing, sales, and technology space respectively—AscentERP came in as an assistance stick for manufacturers who were struggling to position their next level of growth. In the course of their initiative, AscentERP found a perturbing obstacle: the silos and boundaries created between the business and IT by the existing ERP tools within organizations.

Through its AscentERP application, the company today breaks down the communication barriers in an organization and gets everyone on the same page. With an aim to support a flexible, sustainable, and extensible mentality, and also the warehouse and production floor, AscentERP provides an environment of collaboration—creating greater enterprise responsiveness, agility, and speed.

Companies can save resources that can be utilized to innovate products in accordance with dynamic market requirements,” says Rafiuddin. Along with its collaborative and enterprise-responsive capabilities, AscentERP also provides advisory services that present organizations with better implementation of workflows and processes.
