A Detailed & Comprehensive List of:

Light Manufacturing Accounting System Features

Thousand of pre-defined light manufacturing accounting RFP criteria ensure no important business requirements or software features "slip through the cracks". All are in a quantitative format that guarantees vendor responses will be meaningful, consistent, and easy to compare. All questions are professionally prepared by application specialists to address BOTH the STANDARD features and EXCEPTION CASE software functions required.

Identify BOTH Software Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex light manufacturing accounting system features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This RFP Master ™ uses a Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) that identify BOTH feature AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY Method. This RFP Master function is useful during both the light manufacturing accounting software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.

Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

Software Solutions

Unlike other light manufacturing accounting software RFPs, an RFP Master can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) used in each RFP Master ™ categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX ™ for each vendor RFP response. For example, a feature delivered "out of the box" FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This RFP Master function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large light manufacturing accounting system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.
