Whether they are producing large quantities or made to order items, manufacturers need to have a systematic approach to production that ensure efficiency, productivity and the elimination of waste. This is what achieves the highest margins, meets customer demands, and keeps companies competitive.
To achieve Lean Manufacturing, systems need to be flexible and extendable in order to support every aspect of the business. WinMan ERP helps integrate manufacturing processes from start to finish. We can help manufacturers organize production schedules, monitor stock levels, introduce automation into workflows, and EDI to the management of quality checks and controls.
Our comprehensive batch production feature provides full traceability. It allows users to create unique identification codes for each batch of products created. Master Batch records can be created and stored in the system for a paperless manufacturing environment.
MRP can be automatically generated from finalized sales orders and/or sales forecasts. This planning function provides the ability to both order required materials and suggest and plan production timetables. Operating this type of just-in-time purchasing will minimize the need to keep excessive stock.
Serial barcoding and numbering goods inwards to outwards, combined with the master batch record function within WinMan ERP provides manufacturers with full traceability of resources and finished goods. By utilizing this feature, businesses can access inventory data, keep stock to a minimum, and know exactly where items are located.
The progress of an order can be identified and tracked by work or cost center to provide accurate promise and schedule times. Production planning features provide schedulers with the tools to proactively manage the production line according to available resources, materials, and customer requirements.

The single, integrated business system makes our life easier in many ways. We felt from the start that WinMan is more intuitive in its operation than other systems. Vitally it allows me to monitor my business – take its temperature – at any time by providing live data across all operations and generating reports that can be fine-tuned to meet any demands. By viewing the live data, we can immediately identify which areas may be causing bottlenecks or other problems and hence where additional planning and resources are required.
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 Meadowmead was its flexibility and the ease with which it could be tailored to suit the company’s specific needs.
