The most significant upgrade to the new Cincom Control is its role-based architecture, one of six key upgrades. This type of architecture ensures that users are not overwhelmed by extraneous data and see only the information they need to make the best decisions for their role in the manufacturing process.
So what exactly can a role-based architecture do? I asked Dick Pearse, product director, this question and here are the benefits he shared with me.
Determine your role
When you’re first set up as a user in Cincom Control, you are assigned one (or more) of 27 different business roles.
|Power Users||Core Business Users||Managerial||Transactional|
|Costing Administrator||Accountant Costing||Accounting Manager||Receiving|
|Operations Administrator||Accounts Payable||Product Manager||Shipping|
|Project Administrator||Buyer||Program Manager||Stock Keeper|
|Purchasing Administrator||Controller||Purchasing Manager||Supplier|
|Sales Administrator||Material Planner||Sales Manager||Customer|
|System Administrator||Production Planner||Manufacturing Supervisor||Inspector|
Users can be assigned multiples roles. Privileges are accumulative. And you see how customers are included as a role? Customers can tailor custom roles to meet their needs.
Specific, useful information in real time
As you see in the graphic below, the supply chain manager and buyer see only their unique view of the world.
A role-based architecture delivers the specific information required for each role to execute the assigned business functions.
- Performance measures
- Access to information
- Process execution
(Note: You’ll see this information displayed in the Business Activity Monitor.)
With the 27 roles that Cincom Control delivers, we assure role governance by adhering to segregation of duties.
Not only does this help make sure that the right information is provided to the right person, but it also allows you to provide security of your data.
Having an ERP system with role-based architecture, enables users to make informed decisions and quickly implement the required actions regarding key business metrics.
