Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP solution comes equipped with a robust Manufacturing Management module, designed to increase productivity and efficiency for users.
The Manufacturing Management software is a comprehensive cloud-based application that focuses on the visibility and planning within management through the usage of multiple manufacturing methodologies, such as make-to-stock, make-to-order, and project-centric jobs.
In today’s blog post, we are going to take a closer look at some of the applications of Acumatica’s Manufacturing Management software so that you can visualize how this product can impact your business.
Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
The manufacturing software features a robust MRP tool that helps users ensure optimal inventory availability by incorporating intuitive forecasts and actual customer demands. The MRP tool focuses on minimizing inventory, improving customer satisfaction, and avoiding any shortages in order to maximize profitability.
By utilizing time-phased material planning, companies improve profits by simply buying required resources just in time for manufacturing. Moreover, by incorporating accurate material plans, companies can stay vigilant in what inventory is actually available for manufacturing, which in turn optimizes machine and labor resources.
Bill of Materials (BOM) and Routing
The Acumatica Manufacturing Management platform also has a BOM/routing module, where users can create and store master data definitions of various products and processes specific to the company. This module aids to increase accuracy of BOM/routing definitions in order to make production schedules run smoother without interruption, as well as make sure that all production costs are accurate.
Through this module, companies can connect materials, work instructions, and overhead costs to an operation, adjusting for time-phased release of materials.
Users can also calculate costs through many different methods.
