Macola ERP Supply Chain Management (SCM)


The definition of a successful manufacturing enterprise is one that builds the right products, at the right time, for the right price. That’s why so many manufacturing companies today are focused on managing the entire value-added chain, from the supplier to manufacturer, right through to the final customer. Supply chain management (SCM) has one overriding objective: to get more throughput from existing resources. SCM functionality helps companies reduce inventory, increase the transaction speed by exchanging data in real time, and increase sales by implementing customer requirements more efficiently. Through the use of portals, Macola ERP SCM users can collaborate with customers and see a real-time view of activity across the organization. It starts with the ability to accurately forecast customer demands, and continues with effective planning and scheduling of the flow of materials through the enterprise, to assure on-time delivery and maximum discounts from suppliers. The vendor's solutions enable users to track orders from beginning to end, right out to the customer. And users can make changes on the fly. All corporate information is located in one database, saving employees valuable time when looking for information. Drill-down reporting and analysis is at your fingertips, keeping the process running smoothly. Users can manage customer expectations by providing realistic product delivery dates based on actual and planned material availability, current production capacity, and vendor lead times. Exact provides the tools to evaluate options for expediting materials or adding capacity to meet a requested date, or to propose alternate delivery options when it is not possible to meet the customer’s requested date. Out-of-stocks and excess inventory can be avoided through recommended job and purchase order processes. Users can purchase materials “just-in-time” relative to the live production schedule.

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

What Makes Process Process?


The systems dealing with manufacturing, inventory, procurement, and customer order management systems are among the systems that often prove to be the hardest to acquire due to the unique issues of the process enterprise.

The system must allow you to measure and store these types of materials. Measurement of process materials is often done differently at various locations across a single plant or supply chain. The units of measure (UOMs) used vary even when measuring a single material. Therefore, the product Read More
