Perfecting production planning and control in manufacturing is the backbone of your business. Struggle with this, and your whole business can crash and burn. ERP manufacturing software automates your steps in production planning, allowing you to focus on growing your company.

Keep production lines moving and customers happy with top notch production planning and control

Small inefficiencies might not be obvious. But, without proper tools to monitor and control production, what might be an avoidable issue may become a production-stopping problem. Proper production planning and control systems will help you identify bottlenecks, avoid delays, motivate staff, and improve control over the entire business, even down to task level management on the shop floor.

ERP solutions give you total production planning and control

A computerized system that integrates production planning and inventory control is called enterprise resource planning (ERP). An ERP system makes sure that all activities are up-to-date with complete information on product availability, material requirements planning, inventory levels, and future planned production.

The production planning synchronizes data between departments, so everyone has access to it at all times. This ensures that every function — production planning or purchasing — works towards a common goal without clashes or delays due to lack of communication.

  • Improved supply chain management
  • Sales order and routing scheduling management

Reduce manufacturing and planning costs with automated production planning and control

ERP systems allow manufacturers to greatly reduce their overhead by streamlining many of their business processes. For one thing, a large amount of time and money goes into managing raw material requirements. An efficient way to track inventory is crucial in keeping production cost low.

Manufacturing industries that use ERP systems can easily identify supply shortages or potential production issues. Inventory tracking software makes locating the necessary raw materials much easier, freeing manufacturers to focus on other important tasks.
