MRP Project Timesheets

Supporting the “new product development” process by implementing the following main features:

•       Engineering BoM for new products in prototyping phase: the engineering BoM is converted in manufacturing BoM at the closure of the new product development phase

•       Documents management for describing technical product features

•       Engineering Manufacturing Order for managing prototyping production process; workorders are assigned to project task for logging hours by engineering dpt through timesheets


MRP Forecast Demand

•       Supporting the MRP independent demand forecasting process from past stock consumption data.

•       Integration with “MRP Planning Engine” for providing prevision of independent demand

•       ARIMA model has been implemented


Shop Floor Control

•       workorder scheduling and work center capacity loading

•       capacity leveling with mid-point Scheduling

•       capacity evaluation

•       workorder confirmation and actual dates determination

•       production order closure


MRP Product Costing

•       Manufacturing costing figures calculated in real time in manufacturing order

•       Accounting postings for WIP evaluation at workorder confirmation

•       Actual direct costs posted in real time at workorder confirmation

•       Variance analysis

•       Manufacturing order settlement


MRP Planning Engine

It provides a full comprehensive tool for managing material requirements planning.

The two basic material planning types have been implemented:

•       Push logic with backwards scheduling and requirements explosion (where BoM is defined); that’s the classical MRP tool

•       Pull logic, that’s Reorder Point procedure with forward scheduling for automatic stock replenishment


The following Demand Management Strategies are supported:

•       MTS: the sales order is not relevant for planning and the demand is reduced at sales goods issue (sales order delivery)

•       MTO: no independent demand items can be entered

•       Planning production by lots: the sales order and the demand items are planned together; it is important to choose a lot method for grouping the demand; the demand is reduced at sales goods issue (sales order delivery)

•       Planning with final assembly: the demand reduction is at sales order confirmation so overplanning is taken into account

•       Planning without final assembly: as the “planning with final assembly” for the planning topics; planned orders are created for planning purposes only so they cannot be converted, that means the last stage of production process can be performed with sales order.


MRP Scheduling Engine

It provides a full comprehensive tool for managing workorders scheduling process in finite capacity way.

New schedule dates determination by taking into account finite capacity constraints

Schedule sequence is assigned to each workorder for sequencing their processing per workcenter


MRP Analytic MTO

Managing the overall MTO process for both analytic accounting and logistics perspective, starting from sales orders to manufacturing orders and purchase orders.

Integration with shop floor control and product costing modules


Master Production Plan

Support of production planning process in MTS logic by performing the following business steps:

•       Demand Management: evaluate the forecast demand by entering Planned Independent Requirements

•       Sales and Operation Planning: determine the master production plan items by comparing the released forecast demand, the current stock, sales and supply

•       Master Production Plan: consolidate the master production plan by evaluating capacity loading and financial figures; master production plan can be used stand alone for production planning


BoM Availability Check

Check the feasibility of a production quantity based on the projected availability stock at all level of the BoM.


MRO Maintenance

Supporting the end-to-end maintenance process with the following maintenance procedures

•       Corrective

•       Preventive

•       On condition

•       Periodic

•       Maintenance Plan

•       Retrofit


Purchase Monitor

Reporting for supporting follow up activities in purchasing process


Stock Transfer  Inter-warehouses

Support the stock transfer process between warehouses belonging to the same company
