Automating your materials planning processes provides the basis for increasing on-time orders
Satisfying customer requirements starts with maintaining optimal inventory levels. Find out how successful manufacturers respond to last-minute changes and impacts using Acumatica Manufacturing MRP to enable time-based resource planning.
Accurate material plans ensure that material is available for production. The purpose of material resource planning (MRP) is to ensure materials are purchased just in time for manufacturing. Crucial material reports and exception notifications enable planners to respond to real-world changes impacting demand and production schedules quickly.
This visibility improves resource scheduling to maximize machine, work center, and labour resources. Planners can review and execute the complete material plan through Acumatica Manufacturing MRP screens that show all activity, orders, requirements, balances, and recommendations for an inventory item. Acumatica also makes it easy to view critical materials required for scheduled production orders.
Manage by Exception
Exception reporting in Acumatica ERP enables your managers to monitor material plans, material shortage reports, and production from a real-time dashboard. It's easy to understand which orders to move-in or move-out, which orders to cancel, and which vendors they need to contact to expedite shipments. You can drill down to manage material plans using exception messaging to keep production running at optimal performance. Acumatica MRP shows the planner recommendations to defer, expedite, and delete supply items, including the ability to:
- Work through a list of recommended actions and then take action to expedite, defer, or cancel supply orders to keep your plant running smoothly and ship customer orders on time.
- Identify late orders and display any transfers available from another warehouse or site.
