With ever shorter lead times and increasing price pressure, the challenges of make-to-order manufacturing and complex variant management is clear: even mid-sized companies are must optimize their production processes in order to compete. That’s why ERP production planning and control (PPC) is at the heart of the abas ERP system for modern production companies.
Efficiency through automation
With abas ERP, you have your entire order management system on the screen. With one click, you can convert automatically generated production proposals into work orders and, by approving them, trigger job tickets, route cards, picking lists and an availability check. The capacity plan provides a complete overview of machine utilization, bottlenecks and backlogs, and, when work steps are shifted, immediately takes into account the impact on MRP. Conflicts are identified at an early stage and you can act instead of simply reacting.
Production under control
Since medium-sized suppliers are becoming increasingly involved in their customers’ product development, the subject of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is gaining importance. The development and production of complex products at different sites with a large number of people involved requires significant coordination effort. A central database ensures that your team has access to the latest CAD data, drawings and specifications at all times. You can trace the version history seamlessly over many years to check what was developed or changed and when.
With abas ERP Production Planning & Control, your production processes become much more streamlined and you can increase value creation in production.
