Production Bill of Materials: Create the bills of the materials and calculate the standard costs. Required for the configuration of all the other Manufacturing modules.

Production Orders: Create and manage the production orders, post-consumption, and output to the production orders. After that you have created a production order, you can calculate the net requirements based on that production order. This module also includes a tool that is a manual supply planning tool as an alternative to automatic planning. The Order Planning window can provide the complete visibility and the tools you need to manually plan for the demand from sales lines and then to create the different types of the supply orders directly.

Agile Manufacturing: Agile Manufacturing module can enable you to run the Agile Manufacturing, Capacity Planning, and the supply Planning modules

Version Management: Through the version management module you can able to create and manage the different versions of the manufacturing bill of the materials and routings.

Supply Planning: Supply Planning module can help to plan the material requirements based on the demand with support for master production scheduling and the materials requirements planning. Basic Supply Planning includes:

  • Automatic production orders and purchase orders.
  • Action messages for the fast and the easy balancing of supply and demand.
  • Support for bucket-less and the bucketed material requirements planning.
  • The Setup for the items with their own reordering policy, including the registration of whether they are manufactured by or purchased from a third party.

Demand Forecasting: Manage demand forecasting based on items. Input demand (sales) forecasts for the products and the components in a more convenient way (daily, monthly, quarterly). This data allows the system to plan and create the production and the purchase orders taking into consideration the demand forecast together with the level of available inventory and parameters of requirement planning.

Sales and Inventory Forecasting: This Sales and Inventory Forecast extension can help in getting deep insights about the potential sales and an overview of the expected stock-outs. The built-in Cortana Intelligence leverages historical data. This can helps you to manages your stock and respond to your customers. Based on the forecast, the Sales and Inventory extension can help in create replenishment requests for vendors and saves you time.

Capacity Planning: Add the capacities (work centers) to the manufacturing process. Set up the routings and use these routings on the production orders and in material requirements planning. View overall loads and the task list for the capacities.

Finite Loading: Manage finite loading of capacity-constraint resources. Taking the capacity constraints into the account so that no more work is assigned to a work center than the capacities can be expected to execute during a given time period. This is a very simple tool without any optimization. Used with the Order Promising module, Finite Loading can also enable the system to calculate the capable-to-promise (CTP).

Machine Centers: Add machine centers as the capacities to the manufacturing process. Machine centers are designed especially to help you to manage the capacity of a single machine/producing resource. With the help of machine centers, you can easily plan/manage the capacity on several levels: on a more detailed level for machine centers and on a consolidated level for work centers. Machine centers can allow users to store more default information about the manufacturing processes, such as setup time or the default scrap percentage.
