Create bills of materials and calculate standard cost. Required for configuration of all other Manufacturing granules.
Create and manage production orders, and post consumption and output to the production orders. After you have created a production order, you can calculate net requirements based on that production order. Production Orders includes a manual supply planning tool as an alternative to automatic planning. The Order Planning window provides the visibility and tools you need to manually plan for demand from sales lines and then to create different types of supply orders directly.
This granule enables you to run Agile Manufacturing, Supply Planning, and Capacity Planning granules.
Create and manage different versions of the manufacturing bill of materials and routings. You must purchase the Basic Capacity Planning granule before you can set up multiple versions of routings.
Plan material requirements based on demand with support for master production scheduling and materials requirements planning. Includes:
- Automatic production orders and purchase orders.
- Action messages for fast and easy balancing of supply and demand.
- Support for bucket less and bucketed material requirements planning.
- Setup for items with their own reordering policy, including registration of whether they are manufactured by or purchased from a third party.
Manage demand forecasting based on items.
Add capacities (work centers) to the manufacturing process. Set up routings and use these routings on production orders and in material requirements planning. View loads and the task list for the capacities.
Manage finite loading of capacity-constraint resources. Taking capacity constraints into 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 simple tool without any optimization. Used with the Order Promising granule, Finite Loading also enables the system to calculate capable-to-promise (CTP).
Add machine centers as capacities to the manufacturing process.
