Accounting switch to 1C:ERP
We migrated the customer's accounts to 1C:ERP and added two enhancements: one that enables detailed analysis of deviations in component prices used in finished product manufacturing, and another that enables analysis of deviations in the cost of finished goods.
As part of its management philosophy, a large parts and components company adopted the "standard costing" method to determine the cost of components and the cost of the finished product during the procurement process. However, the customer's existing accounting system 1C:UPP (a predecessor to 1C:ERP) was unable to generate data for deviation analysis and all calculations had to be performed in Excel, resulting in time-consuming calculations that were not as detailed as desired and only performed at a general summary level.
Our experts offered to migrate the customer from the older 1C:UPP system to modern 1C:ERP. As part of the migration, we made two additional enhancements. One of these provided for extensive study of price deviations for components used in finished goods production, while the other enabled analysis of variances in the cost of finished goods.
A timely and complete deviation analysis enables the company to make the best decisions, avoid unnecessary additional costs, regulate and manage risks and better predict the future course of events. Automated data retrieval also reduces time spent on manual calculations, allows for quicker choices and eliminates calculation errors. These add-ons will be beneficial to a manufacturing company as well as any other type of business that uses 1C for accounting, cost planning and cost control.
