In their practice, companies of different sizes encounter an inexhaustible number of activities that create value and result in profit. Manufacturing companies are far from ending in production itself.
Support processes that ensure supply, in-house logistics and sales are an integral part. All major and minor processes are managed. Whether they are run by one person, by team or by software, it is not enough. If a company wants to control all potential sources of costs and threats, it must analyze the processes.
Anything can be analyzed if the subject of the analysis is measurable and can be evaluated. People do the analysis on a daily basis without realizing it. However, with the management of the company, the scope of the process and analyzes expands, enriches itself with new variants and the management becomes unmanageable for one person. Subsequently, such a manager loses track of some processes and, after a period of malfunction, begins to think about change. The first and often the only solution that management decides is to expand the team leader.
Creating a process map
The newly formed management team can manage everything except itself. For this purpose, it is necessary to create a process map and determine for which main processes each manager will be responsible in the company. It is ideal to create a process map before creating a management team, which will allow a much more precise definition of the required human resources and their competencies. This step can reveal weaknesses and can identify necessary steps without the need to create some leadership positions. Based on previous information, the analysis is the tool that is, as a result, the cheapest opportunity for the company’s development.
Companies can design a new process map themselves. Analyzing current processes and then adjusting them is a constantly recurring cycle of innovation and implementation. Every change and fine-tuning is a difficult and time-consuming task.
“Production planning and control software is the ideal tool for process management with great importance from a company the size of a micro – enterprise, managed by a single tradesman or owner. The software includes a fine-tuned process map that the company can deploy immediately. Process fine-tuning has taken place in thousands of other companies with the same focus in recent decades.
Therefore, the implementation of ERP software, which specializes in a specific industry, is of exceptional importance. Such an approach will ensure full compatibility when taking over tuned processes and will allow the use of know-how supplied with the software, “said Jozef Petluš, project coordinator, OSMOS sro

The above-mentioned functions are an integral part in the management of the business of an individual, a micro-company, as well as a company with 200 employees.
Use for different sizes of companies
Thanks to the very low price of the basic package, a self-employed person who manages and runs his business or has several employees can obtain records of his orders from the beginning of his business, use fast quotation and generate delivery notes and invoices directly from the software.
A small company with two to five executives often expands the basic configuration with inventory records, online collection terminals for production reporting directly from the workshop, uses capacity production planning and links to the company’s accounting software.
A medium-sized company with approximately 20 executives and administrative staff can increase its efficiency through advanced production planning, structured BOMs and one-click production of entire assemblies, statistical tools, or links to CAD / CAM or nesting software.
“One of BEMET | ERP’s most powerful tools is the ability to give full control to the user when needed. For example, the ability not to restrict users in the event of problems, replacement of materials, machines, or change of operator. BEMET | ERP processes approach to changes in The technological process is an ideal guide to production, but the reality is often disrupted by current changes in conditions that can be done without interfering with ERP and still remain detailed, “said M. Nyerges, technical consultant, OSMOS sro.
Modular structure of the program
BEMET | ERP has a modular structure and its configuration allows you to set the functionality to reflect the needs of the company at the lowest achievable price.
