Managing sufficient material levels is one of the most critical and time-consuming aspects of manufacturing. Adjutant’s Material Requirement Planning (MRP) software module eliminates purchasing and scheduling problems and speeds up the work process. This powerful yet easy to use application helps purchasing and production managers analyze current and future material and distribution requirements and enables more effective planning.
The Material Requirement Planning system is tightly integrated with the Customer Orders, Inventory, Sales Analysis (Forecasting), Purchasing, and the Manufacturing modules of Adjutant, and is sensitive to company and plant specific criteria. This MRP software analyzes the existing stock status of all raw materials and finished goods. With Adjutant’s Material Requirement Planning screens you can determine precisely when and how much material should be purchased or manufactured based on a time-phased analysis of sales orders, production orders, purchase orders, current inventory levels and forecasts. This demand analysis can be viewed daily, weekly, or monthly.
Complete pegging is supported allowing the user to drill down to the critical data such as purchase order due dates, manufacturing order due dates, and the actual customer orders making up the commitments of an item.
Adjutant’s Procurement streamlines the key processes of supply chain management to provide a user-friendly procurement system that displays immediate bottom-line results. The system determines potential suppliers of items through commodity groups and can automatically request bids from them based on inventory levels or generated quotes. Instant access to previous vendor quote history provides the information needed to quickly identify savings opportunities and improve supplier relationships. Web Portal integration allows your suppliers to enter their bids online so you can have vendors’ quotes within minutes instead of days. Integration with other Adjutant modules forms a streamlined process that easily maintains margins, updates outsourced item costs on customer quotes, and automatically creates purchase orders.
