More of how AutoSimply's Production Planning Product is worth the investment

User defined location networks: Users can now define the scope of distribution networks by grouping I/C locations to form networks. P/P supports an unlimited number of distribution networks.

Easy definition of buyers/planners: An unlimited number of buyers for purchased I/C materials and planners for manufactured I/C products can be defined. Planning inquiries and reports can be generated by buyers or planners.

Flexible item planning parameters: Users can now define safety stock levels, order multiples, or maintain manufacturing and purchase lead times for each item record in I/C. Automatic planned orders can also be generated for selected items

More realistic purchase/production plans: With the use of item specific planning parameters, economic order quantities and supplier minimum order requirements can now be better simulated to create more realistic plans.

Better management of sales forecasts: Forecasts can be inputted, imported, and even generated for use during planning runs. Using forecast consumption, P/P uses actual O/E sales orders to consume sales forecasts.

Better management of planned orders: Planned orders can be confirmed and eventually be automatically converted to P/O Requisitions or M/F Manufacturing Orders.
