- Production planning that is accurate and timely
- Available materials, labour, equipment, etc. are optimised
- Cycle times are reduced
- Inventory costs are minimised
- Plant floor throughput optimised.
- Functionality included within the IQMS manufacturing scheduling and planning software includes:
Powerful “what if” scenarios cover the entire production process to determine availability to complete the required order, including raw materials, purchased parts, manufacturing time and more.
Integration with IQMS’ order entry and sales modules ensures everyone within the business has access to real-time data to enable collaborative forecasting.
Material Requirements & Resource Planning (MRP)
As well as maintaining lean inventory levels, EnterpriseIQ powerful MRP module accurately and effectively manages all resources necessary to meet manufacturing demand. The MRP modules takes into account products that are manufactured both internally and through supliers, as well as sub-assemblies.
Develops the most efficient production plan by balancing all resources and costs required to meet the demand (forecast, sales orders and any inter-dependents), work orders in progress (firm, generated, manual) and projected on hand balances (availability).ADVANCED PLANNING &
Powerful and flexible scheduling module executes your production plans, while at the same time enabling real-time adjustments to allow for unplanned events to ensure the most efficient manufacturing throughput.
