FeneVision ERP Modules

FeneVision is designed as a series of modules that work together to provide the most comprehensive ERP system for the entire fenestration industry.  Whether your company fabricates glass or produces windows and doors, FeneVision ERP software is the solution that has proven time and again to make the greatest impact on your production.

Order entry, tracking and shipping
FeneVision WEB
FeneVision WEB is a completely integrated addition to FeneVision CORE that allows user-friendly web order entry opportunities for dealers and customers. Additionally, FeneVision WEB users enjoy a full complement of customer information tools, such as order status, order history, and delivery status. No additional configuration is required and users can assess the module from a password protected link on an existing website.

 
FeneVision Tracking
The FeneVision Tracking module can be added to FeneVision CORE to provide production location information for plant management and direct labor. The application consists of two unique tracking methods that can be located in key production areas throughout your manufacturing facility. These production areas, or stations, collect intermediate production status information and visually display key production information to those in direct labor.

This collection of production information allows the FeneVision Business Intelligence module to provide real time production data to both plant management and customers. Furthermore, FeneVision Tracking triggers reprocessing in the cases of rejects or defects in manufactured products.

FeneVision Trucking
How do you expedite the shipping of manufactured goods?  FeneVision Trucking, designed for both window and glass manufacturers, lets you to configure shipping routes, load trucks, and print shipping paperwork. Additionally, FeneVision Trucking allows you to reject damaged items before loading them onto the truck and delivering them to the customer, thus reducing time spent returning and reprocessing goods.

FeneVision Trucking was developed in conjunction with FeneVision Tracking–both modules are ancillary components of FeneVision CORE.

FeneVision Delivery
FeneVision Delivery is an iPad application providing the user the ability to display the trucking manifest on an iPad after delivery has been scheduled via FeneVision Route Builder. A supplementary application to FeneVision Tracking, FeneVision Delivery works independently from the user’s network and is based on a 3G and 4G network technology, thus expediting the entire delivery process for both the user and the customer (iPads must be purchased separately).

FeneVision RMA
FeneVision Return Merchandise Authorization, or RMA,  is a module designed to process customers’ return requests.  Users entering RMA requests select the work flow through which the request will follow—the options include actions that define what happens to the merchandise upon return and ensures that the merchandise is expeditiously handled.  RMA requests are associated with the FeneVision Mobile Delivery application so that drivers are informed of the need for pickup.

Optimization
FeneVision OPTI
Optimization of each sheet of glass is remains your top priority.  FeneVision OPTI can make that happen. FeneVision OPTI can operate either as a standalone software application or as a tightly integrated member of the FeneVision CORE software. Available versions include OPTI-Glass, OPTI-Break, OPTI-Temp and OPTI-Load.

FeneVision Lineal Optimizer
FeneVision Lineal Optimizer enables you to balance labor and material costs, group common parts across window types, evaluate the splitting of parts to maximize yields and provide easier set-up of your bill of materials. FeneVision Lineal Optimizer allows for total customization of profiles so you can set parameters for individual units and costs.

FeneVision MAX-Opt Lineal Optimization
FeneVision MAX-Opt controls rising lineal costs by replacing traditional optimizers with a system that simultaneously considers labor and material costs, can optimize across two or more batches within the same schedule and is flexible enough to allow optimization to be organized by unique items or saws. And imagine the cost savings when you’re able to optimize high and low volume items differently. Fully integrated with FeneVision CORE, this revolutionary tool is a must for every window and door manufacturer wanting to alleviate mounting lineal costs.

Designers
FeneVision CAD Designer
The FeneVision CAD Designer is a completely integrated multi-user CAD system. FeneVision CAD allows users to add drillings, cut-outs, rounded corners and edgework to both shapes and rectangular glass in order to create technical multi-layer DXF files that include detailed and dimensional drawings for the final customer and for production. Drill holes, cut-outs and internal contours can be freely defined and added into the library.

The system allows for any type of edge processing, such as flat polish, pencil polish, bullnose, miters, bevels and more. These can be applied around all the edges of the glass or individually to one or more edges of the glass with the benefit of adding more edge processes at any time.

The selection of edge processing, drill holes and cut-outs automatically drives the FeneVision pricing calculation fully automatically by mapping of option codes to the selected processes.

And that isn’t all: The FeneVision CAD designer offers multi-layer technology, allowing users to separate drawings based on components of a main product—a laminated glass build-up with multiple drawings, for example.

FeneVision Shower Door Designer
FeneVision Shower Door Designer is a completely integrated multi-user module created for the handling and design of framed and non-framed shower doors. Template showers, including fittings and accompanying parts, can be created by means of a powerful graphical designer.

FeneVision Shower Door Designer is unique in that it is independent from any particular fitting manufacturer, handling fittings from different suppliers utilizing the same database.

FeneVision Shower Door Designer is based upon the standard FeneVision Options Wizard, offering two and three dimensional views of newly created designs. Models created can also be rotated on the graphical screen. Depending upon the fitting manufacturer, an automatic download of catalog parts may be achieved (FeneTech engineering services may be required). 

FeneVision Shower Door Designer uses the integrated FeneVision CAD Designer, so multi-layer DXF files and drawings necessary for the production of the processed glass items are easily created. Additionally, the system prices the entire shower door kit including glass, fittings, handles, metal profile and any other parts included in the dynamic bill of material.

Shower doors can be combined with normal order entry items such as tempered or processed glass and IG or laminated glass using the standard FeneVision CORE order entry process. The system is also available as an addition to FeneVision WEB, offering an additional design tool for use by the end customer, which includes EDI transfer of shower door orders to the main FeneVision CORE application.

FeneVision Opening Designer
Customizing window and entry doors has never been easier than with the FeneVision Opening Designer, which allows users to configure customized, one-of-a-kind window and door openings.  FeneVision Opening Designer is a complement to FeneVision CORE.

FeneVision Bay & Bow Designer
FeneVision Bay & Bow Designer is a supplementary module to FeneVision CORE that allows for the design of bay and bow windows, including the compilation of every part necessary for production. FeneVision Bay & Bow Designer features a complete bill of materials calculation, graphical display drawings, and full integration into FeneVision CORE.

Accounting integration
FeneVision Accounting Interface
FeneVision Accounting Interface is an additional module to FeneVision CORE that provides accounting solutions that support the manufacturing side of your business.

FeneVision Accounting Interfaces provide information to a standard manufacturing accounting system. A variety of accounting packages are supported that will, in addition to the manufacturing piece, round out the solutions your company requires in order to make the most of your entire operation.

LineScanner

FeneVision LineScanner is a high-speed, high-resolution and proven solution that will help you consistently find a high percentage of glass defects and regain the confidence of your customers. It’s a new and affordable solution.

Powered by Austrian engineering firm Softsolution, FeneVision LineScanner scans at a resolution up to 400 dots-per-inch at production speeds as fast as 50 meters per minute. It can output to a standalone display station or be integrated with your current ERP or other production system.

FeneVision LineScanner is the practical glass quality system
Glass defects discovered after fabrication require remakes and can delay the shipping of complete orders. Glass defects discovered in delivered and installed units? These upset customers and require even costlier remedies.

Both damage your bottom line and the reputation of your business.

While the cost of quality issues is high, the available solutions have been unsatisfactory. Human inspection of lites and insulated glass has proven inconsistent. It is time consuming and labor intensive. And the additional handling introduces its own opportunities for damage.

Automated scanning required installation of sensor technology too costly and inaccurate for nearly all window and door makers and glass fabricators. Until now.

LineScanner measurement, surface quality and defect detection enables you to:
Verify production sequence and interface with downstream equipment.
Detect inclusions, scratches, finger prints, stains, chips and more.
Provide notice to the operator of a defect.
Scan lites and IG
Find contamination, damage and body faults on all surfaces of lites and IG with transmittance of 5 to 95%.

Scan at production speed
LineScanner is accurate at speeds up to 50 meters per minute or about 9,800 feet per hour.

Measure outside and inside contours
Verify unit size and shape and all inside fabrications to enable downline automation.

LineScanner is highly customizable to your needs
It can be mounted vertically or horizontally in lengths up to three and a half meters (3.4m).
It can be standalone or integrated with your glass fabrication or window and door ERP.
Tolerance and display settings are user configurable.
LineScanner can be used anywhere in your operation—beginning, middle or end.  As little as a 2.75 inch (70mm) clearance is required for installation.
