Gather, assemble, and apply information to production planning, scheduling, execution and cost analysis.
The module supports work order and repetitive production environments. It also supports full integration of resource and tooling maintenance and scheduling, and outside operations. The use of a unique “method” approach eliminates the need to maintain a separate
BOM, routing and tooling records for each part.
The manufacturing method is a unique environment in which the traditional manufacturing routing, BOM, and tooling are married at each step of the manufacturing process. The user can easily review a “super copy” overview of all aspects involved or associated with an item’s “manufacturing methods” in order to quickly analyze and resolve each constraint factor. It’s a very powerful, yet simple to understand tool, as it accurately presents the manufacturing process in a “real world” step-by-step method.
Highlights include multi-location and multi-plant; MPS (Master Production Scheduling); order demand reflected real-time in MPS; MRP (Material Requirements Planning); CRP (Capacity Resource Planning); sales forecasts by user defined time intervals; family parts (family mold) logic and costing; outside vendor services processing; and integrated drag and drop visual APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling Module).
