Supply

Operations Planning

Once demand has been placed on inventory, Syspro offers a stock release program to decide and prioritize the allocation of stock, including specific lots, serials and bin locations, using a variety of allocation strategies.

This importantly involves meeting customer requirements to ship to an end location or grouping via a distribution center or cross-dock.

Production & Requirements

Syspro offers an integrated set of tools that ensure supply and demand are well aligned, and that a company’s capacity is respected.

  • Inventory Forecasting and Optimization suite
  • Material requirements planning (MRP)
  • Graphic view of production floor

The Inventory Forecasting and Optimization suite helps you maintain a dynamic forecast or minimum/maximum levels of inventory that reflect the latest actual sales applied to your chosen weightings and algorithms. These dynamic forecasts are then submitted to the MRP together with a variety of supply and demand sources – as a result a set of suggested actions is automatically calculated.

Once the suggested purchase order, job and supply chain transactions are accepted, the workload can then be viewed and optimized on the Factory Scheduler. A smooth and flawless system thanks to the Syspro tool set.

Job Creation

Whether make-to-stock or make-to-order, jobs are quickly created taking into account production planning and stock levels, any BOM revisions, any on-the-fly customizations and more.

Jobs to transform inventory or to capture non-inventory costs such as installation or R&D projects can initiate manually or from any of these automated sources:

  • From sales order and BOM
  • From quotation estimate
  • Driven by MPS

Purchasing

Backed by both a Purchasing and Requisition System, Syspro provides Purchase Order functionality supporting multi-currency, multiple warehouses, multiple receipt dates, drop-shipments, and inventory costing as accurate as you wish!

Costing applied to inventory receipts can be as simple as adding a single factor to the purchase cost to reflect additional landed costs, or as comprehensive as a full formula-based landed cost tracking system.
