Keep your master recipes and formulas in one place.
Wherefour can handle production using both process manufacturing (recipes, formulas, bill of materials) and discrete manufacturing (assemblies) procedures. You can design a completely custom and flexible production process that works the way you want to produce your products.
Because the final yield of each production run is a big factor in the true cost of your products, Wherefour tracks the final yield (and any scrapped amounts) of each run and automatically factors it into all cost calculations. You can also apply activity-based labor costs to each recipe.
With grouped formulas, you can even create complex, multi-step production processes that model the same way you produce your products in the real world. At each stage of production, Wherefour will let you create new inventory, use inventory created in other runs, and produce whatever finished goods you need. All lot and cost tracked, of course!
If you want to keep your recipes and formulas confidential, Wherefour’s easy-to-use roles and permissions feature allows you to lock out (or grant access) to specific users for any section of your account.
Have your recipes or formulas in a spreadsheet now? No problem – just import your files into Wherefour for a quick way to get started.
Need to make changes to your formulas duing production? Wherefour lets you edit your recipes on-the-fly for each work order. Perfect for R&D purposes or just trying out different production processes as your business ramps up. Changes are even logged for audit and cost tracking purposes.
