The Plastic industry has been thriving as it has become a popular material used for everyday items. The supply chain is divided into different segments and can be complicated. From injection and extrusion moulding to thermoforming, WinMan ERP Software can address the needs of the business. It is a fully integrated manufacturing management, accounting, estimating and customer relationship management all in one system.
Planners can use the production scheduler to manage multi-cavity tooling, work schedules, labour, setup times and group work orders with ease. Planners will be able to see bottle-necks, create activity centres for specific jobs or tooling method and see available capacity at any given time.
Use WinMan to reconcile the weight difference between the input of raw materials and the subsequent component production, sprue and re-grindable or saleable scrap polymer. This allows managers to proactively monitor scrappage levels, set realistic targets and highlight areas where processes need to be improved.
Business documentation from manufacturing, tooling specifications and product configurations to packaging requirements, can all be securely stored in WinMan. All communication with external stakeholders can be stored within the integrated CRM feature. This includes emails, faxes, bills of material, sales orders, purchase orders and customer or supplier specifics.
All goods received can be booked in using a unique barcoding system. For all finished products, components and raw material involved can all be traced from initial purchase to dispatch.
WinMan can assist Production Managers with multi-tool management including processes such as blanking-off, enabling the production of multiple product ranges at the same time. The tools lifecycle can be tracked within the system, purchase dates, services and decommissions can all be logged.
Electronic master batch records and quality testing documents can be created and stored within WinMan. Each manufactured batch will have a unique identification number for full traceability and tracking.
All parts and materials costs can be programmed into the ERP system so gross margins can be immediately calculated once a quote is created. EDI processes such as order confirmations, invoices and delivery notes can be automated and sent electronically to the recipient, saving time and resources.

Our WinMan ERP system allows me to directly and quickly access the management information I need to run the business – real-time reporting of key performance indicators such as operating efficiencies and deliveries. Vitally, more consistent pricing gives a truer margin on the work we perform. Meanwhile the system has supported our company’s strategy of investment for growth and its ability to meet delivery promises, hence strengthening its reputation in the marketplace as a reliable and trustworthy supplier. An accurate delivery date to the nearest day can now be assigned by our sales administration staff within half-an-hour of an order being placed. We proudly meet over 99% of those dates.
As a director of the business it was important to me that the system we implemented not only met our functional requirements, but also came from a supplier that was prepared to take on single source responsibility. Of all of the companies we evaluated, WinMan were the only one that ticked all the boxes.
The underlying advantage of WinMan for John Sankey was its flexibility and the ease with which it could be tailored to suit the company’s specific needs.
Our objective was to streamline data processing and substantially reduce keystrokes – a 50% reduction was the minimum target – and a lot of that keystroking was to do with assignment. The more non-value-adding activity we can take out the better.
