Gone are the days when diamond merchants and manufacturers carried out their correspondence through telephone or other communication systems. Like any other industry, this diamond industry too had witnessed a whole lot of revolution in terms of using technology to its advantage. This use of technology in different faculties of diamond manufacturing has not only helped the diamond manufacturers witness their profits increasing manifold, it also increased their reach across the globe. This meant more revenue generated and more customers added to the list. The same has been brought into force at WDM too.
At WDM, we have a factory that is well equipped in all aspects that would give the best of results. There is a Factory Management System which provides all the relevant management information that has a bearing on the diamond manufacturing process. Our FMS is an in-house facility and hence the diamond polishing expertise that is needed would encompass all those essentials that would lead to a smooth management of affairs. All this had to be there available in a user friendly format. We have a flexible system in place that can be personalized according to the requirements of our clients.
Here are the key features of Factory Management System we have in place:
Through our IT solutions, it is very much possible for the management to easily track the status of the existing stock in real time and also view the entire history.
Our customers get a highly customizable view and they can also use the filters that come in with different options which can be saved as templates for a quick view.
There is a bar code system that is incorporated and the weighing scale integration to the system enhances the speed, efficiency and accuracy as well as the overall performance.
Facility to compare planned data with the actual data is made possible. There is an interface which helps importing of planned data from the OGI system and Sarin.
Stone valuation is accomplished on Rapaport or through the price list defined by the user or even a combination of the two options. The user can download the data from Rapaport from the website.
In case there is a loss of the predefined parameters related to the precious stone, the parcels can be blocked. This generally happens at the task level or the department level. The parcel will be blocked and will be released only when the issue is sorted out and the authorized persons like the department managers or the task managers testify the same.
With the help of our IT solutions, we generate alerts depending on the choice of the users, be it the blocked parcels or idle parcels. There is an option to save the stone images while they are being manufactured.
Wages or incentives for the works can be calculated based on different parameters like shape of the stone, size of the stone, rough type, repairs, task, and experience of the workers involved in the job. They can also be calculated based on the exports data in the Payroll system.
There is an option to import as well as compare the lab results of different stones in terms of color, carat weight, cut, purity and symmetric polish. This comparison can be made with the results achieved by the factory and one could elucidate the deviation if existing.
