You will know exactly what you can expect. It will help you to forecast material lacks in time, so you will react on time. Your scheduling of production will be more accurate and reliable. By this software you can simulate different production scenarios and forecast resources inventory levels. You can check BOMs, orders, inventory levels and perform "what-if" simulations. The program provides tools for data import from external data sources, such as your ERP system (SAP R/3, for example). Imported data are then processed and results are represented in interactive datagrids and reports. You can check BOMs (bills of materials) for any required product quantity as well as stocks of materials (finished goods, semi-finished products, raw materials, packing materials etc.). You can see list of orders with required components and quantities, but you can also revert logic to see components and orders that require those components. On the same interactive screen or report you will see information about product stocks, production orders, required components and their required quantities, as well as current stocks of components. For every component in the BOMs (bills of materials) you can see demands and whether it lacks for order(s) and in what quantity. You will get information about interdependencies between different products, orders and components. This is a freeware listed under business other category.
