Benefits for STONEMASON WORKSHOPS

Effective production planning and costs tracking.

All gravestones and their projects are controlled in one place.

Imagine that you look at a list with all planned projects and orders; at one click, you can view the whole project, attached photos, stone cutting plans, customised inscription. 

And still, with one click, everything goes to a production hall, without the need of hand-typing, but if you wish, you can attach an order card with the necessary description.


Fast and easy task planning for tombstones production

Thanks to a simple form, flexibility and mobile access from many devices, you can easily plan work for different sections, including assembly teams working on location. 

Each employee will have the necessary information, such as visualisation, attachment with template inscriptions or lists of cuttings, available at hand.

What’s more, when using TAG-s, the same colour tombstone elements can be easily marked to be grouped more efficient for cutting operation.


Complete control over production process from making the first cut to final assembly on location

You can see every operation in the system, working time, check-ins and check-outs.


It is possible to check the total production time of a particular tombstone and its relation to set norms.

Additionally, thanks to printed production guidelines, it is possible to mark easily particular tombstones, having attached to the cards with complete production parameters.

Tips and tricks for your industry

Check how to customize your new manufacturing software

Prepare product templates; all that is left to do later – fill out customised boxes.

To make your work faster, you can prepare gravestone templates in the software (ex., based on the models you offer).

Next in the settings, create additional order boxes, such as location, tombstone size, font – and while working on your next order, complete only the specific requirements and save time.

Attach tombstone photographs, visualisations, cutting patterns and files with imprints.

Make your employees work even faster and help them find among thousands of orders tombstones by adding their visualisations. 

You can also add cutting patterns, location photographs or graphic files, where you see an inscription and visuals.

Use printed production orders, even if you don’t use a bar code system

Cards with printed production technology (see how to do it) are great as product ID and can follow it – some companies use stickers generated directly from the software to make things more transparent and clear.

Use MS Excel for better analytics and make your work even more comfortable

When you use MS Excel exports, you should find interesting:

  • possibility of downloading the whole working history for particular elements,
  • total orders progress, including standards.

This combination allows getting any data regarding a form production/tools quickly. Furthermore, it is also possible to reverse the process by importing data.

Short-list with other suggested settings and useful tricks in production management:  

What is best to write down and set as “product” in Prodio:

You can set a particular tombstone model, nest duplicate it and use it as a template. Adding a production technology is highly recommended.

Production plan – what can you set as machines/operations?

As you prefer, if you produce on a small scale, use mainly operations such as cutting or assembly. However, it is better to create separate dashboards for each production hall in larger companies and divide machines adequately.

Production plan – tips regarding displaying and planning

Choose a horizontal view in settings and divide it into separate production hall views – click here.

Additional boxes worth adding for your branch:

To product: Colour of tombstone Thickness Finishing To orders: graveyard number of the grave letters finishing

Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories

Primary colours to make tagging and grouping easier and tags for the saw.
