A detailed production schedule that accounts for machine and labor capacity, scheduling the production runs according to the arrival of materials is generated.
Data about the cost of production, including machine time, labor time and materials used, as well as final production numbers, is provided from the MRP system to the Accounting and Finance Module or exported into other Finance systems. [when integrated into the full Manusoft DRC system]
The MRP module allows a Customer order file to be created from which either supplier orders [purchases] are generated, or a manufacturing order book [MOB] established. Work orders may be raised, this occurs automatically when the supplier is the manufacturer.
Various options are available to control the extent to which the two systems are merged.
- The establishment of a CUSTOMER ORDER FILE [COF] from which orders are generated
- Customer order advice creation
- Customer order despatch facility
- Customer order status reporting including orders-on hand
- Material / Inventory exception reporting and monitoring
This package provides the link into the development of a powerful MRPII system.
All levels within the manufacturing organisation, associated with production, purchasing, inventory control and accounting functions are likely to be involved in the administration of the Manusoft system.
The MCS and MIC modules are required to form the foundation of the MRP system
