How OptiProERP’s Inventory Management Software Works

How OptiProERP’s Inventory Management Software Works

Inventory Management exchanges information with the Master Production Schedule (MPS). Most users use MPS for the things they make, whether it’s made on-site or through a vendor.

Material Requirements Planning (MRP) receives input from the MPS about the quantities of finished products that must be produced to fulfill either a sales order or to meet the demand forecast. MRP is primarily concerned with the things that must be bought (like inventory). MRP also tracks hundreds of variables, including:

  • Purchase orders
  • Inventory shortages
  • BOMs
  • Sales orders
  • Priority orders

What OptiProERP’s Inventory Management Software Does

Based on information input from other ERP modules, like Inventory Management, the MRP application produces outcomes like these:

Quantity Requirements: Identifies inventory quantities that are either on hand, in an open purchase order, planned for manufacturing, already committed to existing orders, or forecasted.

Populates Orders and Reports: Identifies materials needed for purchase orders manufacturing orders and other reporting requirements.

Run Scenarios: Suggests alternative scenarios for materials considered critical for an expedited order or materials that have been delayed.

The beauty of this is that all of your procurement schedules are in lock step with your manufacturing or assembly schedules. This enables the cost savings of Just- in-Time (JIT) lean manufacturing with the minimum levels of inventory stock available exactly when it’s needed.
