Our Solutions for Manufacturing Resources Planning (MRP, MRP II)
Supply Chain Business Solutions does not offer a transaction based MRP / MRP II or ERP system. However, we offer an integrated Forecasting, Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP). Master Production Scheduling (MPS) and Material Requirements Planning (MRP) tool, called Supply Chain Planning (SCP 4.0). SCP Provides materials managers and planners with a tool to control inventory. SCP recommends what to make, how much to make, and when to make it in order to fulfill demand and maintain, but not exceed desirable inventory levels.
Highly manage-by-exception based, the SCP planning engine represents your supply chain accurately. Plants supplying distribution centres (DCs), central warehouses supplying remote locations, point of sale data from stores, or a combination of all of the above… SCP can easily be configured to accommodate a variety of models.
Forecasting in SCP 4.0 is by the integrated Forecast Pro forecasting engine and some other built-in algorithms. Some companies have implemented full Forecast Pro forecasting software and we have managed to integrate it with SCP.
For manufacturers needing to plan raw materials in addition to finished goods, SCP supports a multi-level bill of materials, driving demand down from the finished parts to the corresponding components. Add scheduled receipts, customer orders, and existing inventory to the mix, combined with highly configurable planning parameters including lead time, safety stock and safety time; SCP recommends accurate replenishment planned orders for internal and VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) purposes.
