The manufacturing cost per unit or production cost per unit is often a crucial metric and can vary greatly from one production run to another depending upon the input cost variables. An example would be when extra staffing is used to ensure rapid throughput at times of high demand.
PlantRun can automatically calculate the relative profitability of any job or production run based on costing values for raw materials, energy, labour rates and finished goods input to the system.
Detailed reports including colour graphs and charts can instantly highlight unprofitable or borderline jobs and allow managers to make informed decisions. As with all reports it is easy to compare a current report with any previous job or run as PlantRun stores all the data it has collected. This can provide fast analysis of the effects of material cost changes, set-up times, labour rates and factory gate prices to job profitability.
