Ideal resource planning to match both intricate and simple electronic products

For electronic manufacturers, a lot of moving parts and specific stock need to be perfectly balanced to create products. This is why software that aids planning and scheduling is crucial, so your production schedule is aligned with customer demand, and you’re never hit by stock-outs or shortages.

You can create a detailed bill of materials for every product you offer, and variation BOMs if you offer the same products with different technical specs or minor details. This also allows for clear material requirements planning so all of the components parts of your products are accounted for, and reorder points are set so you can meet make-to-stock or make-to-order deadlines.

Is essential if you’re looking into improving your entire manufacturing business.
