Manage delivery schedules.
Project the usage of intermediates and raw materials based on demand.
In this short video Juno Raby, CAO of Vitality Works, Inc., discusses how using Deacom’s MRP capabilities have improved their production planning and reduced how much inventory should be on hand.
Core MRP functions allow for:
Indirect requirements in DEACOM are defined as the quantity of materials required to satisfy suggestions for the displayed item in the Bill of Materials. As an example, a raw material used to make a finished good will have an indirect quantity showing in the MRP system if a sales order for the finished good is entered. Production jobs are not required in order to see the material requirements for a specific raw material because DEACOM takes scheduled sales orders into consideration when calculating MRP.
Leverage Item Master setup options to reflect desired inventory levels.
Ability to select multiple vendors and parts simultaneously and create all the necessary purchase orders based on the best available pricing.
Manage inventory in multiple location and configure options that will apply to a specific facility when MRP reports are filtered by facility.
Split purchase orders by PO quantity.
Split jobs by job quantity.
Create and schedule production jobs to match production capabilities.
Create multiple jobs simultaneously based on the pre-filter and reports selections in MRP.
Facilitate intercompany inventory transfers.
Run reports for a specific job or sales order.
Use forecasting tools for comparison against actual sales
Define specific vendor parts that contain their own lead times, minimal PO quantities, unique vendor part numbers and descriptions, and pricing information.
Leverage data provided in MRP reports that includes transaction dates for lead time, due to ship, due to dock (intercompany transfers and purchase orders), and job planned start and planned finish dates.
Adjust and scale formulas as needed knowing that all changes will automatically be reflected in inventory, production, and planning tools.
Simplify the process of creating, scheduling, staging, and analyzing production jobs within the single ERP system.
Enforcing quality control measures from within the core ERP system provides a method of true process control for your manufacturing operations.
