Keytrix Data Systems Version 4.0
Version 4.0 is an integrated parametric system (rules based) with a flexible architecture that allows a single change to affect labor times and costs, material types and costs, machine code and machine selection, hardware selection, name, quantity and cost, drawing selection, part and product names. This allows a single change to accurately update all information used from the estimate through production and to be communicated throughout the business. An example of this would be if the user changed from a plastic laminate to a transparent wood finish, all the labor associated with finishing as well as the finishing materials would be accounted for and the appropriate cost, labor times and requirements would now be included in the estimate or available for production planning purposes. By allowing true labor curves that include machine and tooling setup based on the manufacturers own methods and practices the end user gets accurate costing and labor forecasting information for estimating and production.
