FlexGen 4 Production Planning/Scheduling
is the heartbeat of your manufacturing operation.
By maintaining all of your production planning
information online, you can monitor the
accuracy of your build schedule to produce
the right products at the right time. You
will be able to schedule production based
on valid due dates and quantities to meet
known demands, and be alerted to production
problems so you can respond immediately.
With its finger firmly on the inventory
pulse, your optional MRP Module can be used
to alert you when to issue your material
requirements to satisfy your inventory demands
for either work orders or stock. For non-MRP
planning of materials, additional inventory
management tools support both Customer Supplied
Inventory plus Vendor Consigned Inventory
including a full cost accounting interface.
With your materials management issues
under control, your Production Planning/Scheduling
Department can focus more effectively
on managing work-in-process, setting production
priorities, and analyzing capacity constraints.
With the advent of innovative manufacturing
techniques such as Lean, having smaller
batch, tighter standards and on time assembly
and completion of parts, is quickly becoming
a necessity. This competitive advantage
is now available through your FlexGen
4 Production Planning/Scheduling environment.
