Quoting and Costing for Multiple Units of Measure
A common need of plastics producers is real-time shop floor production monitoring. This serves many purposes, including tracking cycles on tools or machines

quantities and estimating  recording of correct production quantities for each shift, and eliminate manual data entry errors, since they can thus automate the (real time) collection of such shop floor information as good items, rejects (and cause of rejects), production hours, efficiencies, and downtime by reason. The software should make it easy for users to find out why machines were down, and why items were rejected in summary (or drill down to details per shift). It should additionally allow them to identify machine status Read More...

Demand Planning: Optimizing Operations across the Supply Chain
Demand planning applications can help manufacturers establish baseline sales forecasts and perform analysis to improve resource usage. They can also help

quantities and estimating  firm view demand by quantities of each product sold. Demand planning software accounts for both variables. Demand planning systems typically produce a baseline forecast based on shipment or order history. Once established, users can change the baseline to account for other data, including promotions, advertising inserts, seasonality, new sales outlets, and other factors. At the same time, demand planning software factors in potential constraints such as materials availability and plant capacity. You can Read More...

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

quantities and estimating  making only the required quantities of WIP and finished products, and that no inventories are created unnecessarily. Master Production scheduling (MPS) is important because it calculates the time required to make finished products as per orders from raw, sourced, and WIP materials and so the delivery dates are determined from the lead times in processing materials on different work centers. In today's manufacturing both accurate delivery dates and optimizing resources are equally important. For this, Read More...
