Managing sufficient material levels is one of the most critical and time-consuming aspects of manufacturing. S2K’s Material Requirement Planning (MRP) software module eliminates purchasing and scheduling problems and speeds up the work process. This powerful yet easy to use application helps purchasing and production managers analyze current and future material and distribution requirements and enables more effective planning.
The MRP system is tightly integrated with the Customer Orders, Inventory, Sales Analysis (Forecasting), Purchasing, and the other manufacturing modules of S2K Enterprise, and is sensitive to company and plant specific criteria. With S2K’s MRP application, you can determine precisely what goods need to be produced, and when and how much material should be purchased based on a time-phased analysis of sales orders, production orders, purchase orders, current inventory levels and sales forecasts. This demand analysis can be viewed daily, weekly, or monthly. Complete pegging is supported allowing the user to drill down to the critical data such as purchase order due dates, manufacturing order due dates, and the actual customer orders making up the commitments of an item. Manufacturing and purchasing suggestions can then be analyzed, adjusted and automatically converted into manufacturing work orders and vendor purchase orders.
