Numerous enterprises now rely on TIW Technology’s ERP, accounting, CRM, manufacturing, data capture, and mobility solutions. Businesses select ALERE with the assurance that TIW has a more than 35-year track record and a well-established reputation for honesty and service quality.
A single-source solution, ALERE Business Applications has all the resources needed to help a small factory become a Fortune 100 firm. The quality-first solution that ALERE ERP offers will far exceed your company’s expectations!
Businesses enjoy how inexpensive ALERE is to buy and maintain. Additionally, after being installed and running, ALERE requires little assistance. ALERE was created entirely within the company by our own technical staff, needs no specialized hardware for a simple setup, and can scale up to run on Client/Server and terminal services platforms.
Regular releases of new versions of ALERE are the outcome of an effective development program. Customizations made with the help of the TIW Developer’s Kit significantly reduce the work involved in upgrading to a new release, lower the cost of ownership, and protect your investment. For the user, an HTML help manual offers support right down to the field level. The guidebook includes links to a collection of instructional videos, which are also easily accessible on the website.
Better Manufacturing with ALERE
Addressing your current and future needs for manufacturing software
ALERE Manufacturing is influenced by more than 30 years of client feedback as well as the substantial real-world manufacturing expertise of Alere’s internal developers. As a result, ALERE offers simple answers to frequent problems that many other manufacturing-focused ERP programs, material resource planning (MRP) programs, and work order tracking programs struggle with.
ALERE offers exceptional traceability along with excellent lot and serial control. ALERE achieves this by publishing the data it has gathered in real-time, allowing for quick reporting on completed processes. The data needed for these capabilities is easily accessible through effective search mechanisms within the ERP system. The transactional structure of the data also simplifies expensive and complex ISO and regulatory traceability reporting requirements.
The Material Resource Planning (MRP) method that ALERE employs pushes through the top level of a BOM as well as any ensuing lower-level components throughout the entire BOM hierarchy in a single run. In light of the numerous soft variables that permeate manufacturing environments, ALERE then automates the generation of manufacture orders, purchase orders, and transfer orders while still giving users the tools they require to make the best decision possible.
One of ALERE’s strongest points is its distinctive BOM structure, which aims to address the persistent issue of BOM sprawl. According to standard engineering procedures, a distinct BOM must be created for each final good that the company sells. However, if you offer a sufficient range of products, BOM upkeep quickly turns into a full-time job due to the exponential growth of bills of material.
BOM sprawl is a problem that ALERE solves by offering both modular and flexible BOM formats. These characteristics, which are specific to ALERE, enable the development of a rules-based configurator inside a BOM. Using this technique, it is possible to condense thousands of BOMs that are quite similar into a single structure and make configuration options visible on sales or work orders. Additionally, the BOM structure can easily be expanded with new options, saving a lot of engineering and maintenance effort.
An in-progress work order update utility is another aspect of ALERE. With just a few clicks, work orders that use a material list from a BOM that experiences an engineering change can update their material lists to the new revision. This strategy significantly reduces both time and the likelihood of data entry errors.
Additionally, ALERE has a finite scheduler to help meet rising expectations for manufacturing efficiency and cut down on costly wait times at work centers. In order to prevent double bookings or malfunctions, the scheduler can also include time-phased machine preventative maintenance programs.
To improve data entry accuracy, speed up data collection, and help users navigate the intricate processes employed on today’s manufacturing floors, ALERE also combines barcoding and other data gathering technologies.
