Jobscope Software Snapshot

Jobscope manufacturing software is a comprehensive ERP software solution for engineer-to-order, make-to-order manufacturers, and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies. All operations are accurately scheduled according to customer requirements and actual plant capacity. Once accepted, a customer order launches a chain of events in Jobscope designed to complete and deliver the order as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. This ERP software solution is especially strong for make-to-order aerospace manufacturers and military contractors, and supports DCAA billing. It is also a very good solution for companies who build capital equipment to contract.

Jobscope manufacturing software offers a full suite of integrated ERP software modules, including CRM, estimating and quoting, engineering BOM, production BOM, shop floor control, inventory, purchasing, production scheduling, field service scheduling, financial management, order analysis, bar code data collection, field service and reporting with KPI dashboards. In addition, Jobscope manufacturing software includes built-in integration to any CAD package.

Most customers have at least 10 users and spend $50-60K for a system.

Jobscope Software Updates

May 2016:

JOBSCOPE University offers online ERP training to registered users in all areas, including:

  • Video training tutorials in use of Jobscope modules
  • Obtain the latest user guides and documentation
  • Learn about new features/functions when an updated Jobscope version comes on the scene

Summer 2015:

Jobscope 18.00, released this summer, includes a number of significant new features — a Configurator module, a KPI Designer, Global Search capability, a completely redesigned user interface (UI), and JOBSCOPE-U, a knowledge sharing and training library. JOBSCOPE provides all modules to every client.

January 2015:

Toward the end of 2014 Jobscope and Siemens announced that are partnering to integrate Siemens’ Solid Edge CAD solution and Jobscope’s manufacturing ERP software.

Solid Edge is a mechanical design system with tools for creating and managing 3D digital prototypes. These tools integrated into the Jobscope ERP package will add muscle to the Jobscope CAD package integrations.

These tools should be a great help for order-driven manufacturers, who want to allow their design engineers to do their work in the CAD system, and feed their designs more directly into ready-to-use bills of material.
