Inventory Management, Master Planning, and Quality Management

  • Control inventory with a variety of models and safety stock support.
  • Apply multiple options for inventory valuation, including: first in/first out (FIFO), last in/first out (LIFO), standard cost, and weighted average.
  • Master planning: Create and run multiple plans across multiple sites to meet demand and keep orders synchronised based on changes in internal or external demand. Improve distribution planning and forecast scheduling with an overview of longer-term purchasing, production, and resource requirements.
  • Optimise enterprise-wide planning by providing upstream organisations in your supply chain with visibility into the demand of downstream organisations.
  • Streamline subsidiary trading and apply intercompany trading policies. Create intercompany order chains directly and automatically from sales order to end-customer with and without direct delivery, and update sales orders from purchase orders and vice versa.
  • Multisite: Maintain centralized control of all site parameters from any location, whether site-specific or company-specific, including inventory, performance goal management. BOMs, routing, costing, and profit and loss dimensions. Manage multiple, distributed warehouses; apply different costs, prices, and cost category rates; and route data by dimensions.
  • Support multiple time zones with preferences for date and time fields set at the user level.
  • Improve business processes for quality assurance, quality control, and lot traceability.

Warehouse Management

  • Automatically receive suggestions for received item placement based on preset rules for one or multiple warehouses. Track received orders with pallet identification; generate an optimized picking route. Use bar codes to track items and locations electronically. Streamline outbound processes by configuring rules for sending and printing shipment documents.
