Streamline your manufacturing processes, cut costs, and control your stock with better planning
Production Bill of Materials (BOM)
Create bills of materials and calculate standard cost for each finished good item and any sub-components.
Create and manage production orders, and post consumption and output to the production orders. After you have created a production order, you can calculate net requirements based on that production order. Production Orders includes a manual supply planning tool as an alternative to automatic planning.
The Order Planning window provides the visibility and tools you need to manually plan for demand from sales lines and then to create different types of supply orders directly.
You can plan material requirements based on demand with support for master production scheduling and materials requirements planning. Includes:
Automatic production orders and purchase orders.
Action messages for fast and easy balancing of supply and demand.
Setup for items with their own reordering policy, including registration of whether they are manufactured by or purchased from a third party.
Add capacities (work centers) to the manufacturing process. Setup routings and use these routings on production orders and in material requirements planning. View loads and the task list for the capacities.
Manage finite loading of capacity-constraint resources. Taking capacity constraints into account so that no more work is assigned to a work center than the capacities can be expected to execute during a given time period. This is a simple tool without any optimization. Used with the Order Promising granule, Finite Loading also enables the system to calculate capable-to-promise (CTP).
Add machine centers to add capabilities to your manufacturing process.
