Functionality of Manufacturing Management:
- Finite and infinite capacity and material planning
- Job scheduling and sequencing
- Resource Management
- Shop Floor Management
- Work Order Management with job costing
- Product configuration
- Quality Management
- Lean Manufacturing.
Benefits of Manufacturing Management:
- Manage production in a demand driven environment - View real-time, integrated work in progress (WIP) with actual costs; make adjustments to avoid potential delays or cost overruns; and streamline inventory management based on demand and forecasting.
- Anticipate and reduce bottlenecks - Gain tight control over every aspect of the production floor with bottleneck scheduling. Quickly view processes and work utilization as a whole with a Gantt chart and use drag-and-drop rescheduling to minimize delays.
- Gain deep insight across the supply chain - With visibility throughout the entire supply chain, you can streamline business processes, optimize resources, minimize lead times, and identify accurate delivery dates.
- Improve control of production processes - Define manufacturing resources, including machines, people, tools, and subcontractors, and allocate them to work centre groups. Tightly control schedules by using finite or infinite capacity scheduling for maximum flexibility.
