SET OBTAINABLE GOALS
The MPS module is used for projecting long-term resource requirements, calculating loads at work centers, tests the feasibility of the production plan and determines future utilization of work centers. MPS works with single and two level BOM’s and integrates with MRP for detail materials planning. The MPS module helps a company to:
- Increase production efficiency.
- Match corporate strategy with production and marketing.
- Develop realistic “on-hand” and “available-to-promise” quantities.
- Optimize work order release and PO timing quantities
MRP computes the requirements for both the component sub-assemblies, as well as the finished assemblies. Information from sales orders and sales forecasts, interact with the IM, PO and PAC modules, to produce a time-phased material requirements plan.These time-phased plans, use infinite backward scheduling logic to arrive at the requirement dates for unlimited planning horizons.
- Improved customer service.
- Reduced inventory levels.
- Increased productivity while reducing costs.
- Improved management.
Work orders could be created using the standards established in the manufacturing design module and print them to provide accurate documentation on the shop floor while simplifying paper flow. Track costs by entering time and materials on a job by job basis; variance from standards are measured for material rate and efficiency, labor rate and efficiency and applied burden.
- Improved quality.
- Improved customer satisfaction.
- Improved inventory control
- Improved costing
R4 MANUFACTURING MODULE FEATURES
Royal 4 Manufacturing and Planning modules offer extensive functionality across the breadth of manufacturing to help you provide the highest quality products while maintaining profitability through efficient and low cost production.
MANUFACTURING DESIGN - BOM
The BM module supports unlimited levels of components and processes. Standard operations include inside and outside processing. Work centers are defined in terms of capacity, employees, machines, utilization, efficiency, direct labor and overhead costs. Cost rollup programs can be executed for individual items or all items, it enables analysis of resulting costs of materials, labor, machinery, outside processes and overhead on a “Costed Bill of Materials Report”.
R4 MPS - MASTER PRODUCTION SCHEDULING
PRODUCTION ACTIVITY CONTROL
R4’s CRP analyzes data from shop orders, planned orders, and actual orders to forecast how these orders will impact shop floor capacity by work centers. It helps to first identify bottlenecks and then how to eliminate them by determining the work load for each work station. It allows you to run what if scenarios until you find the optimum plan. This is a serious tool designed to help production operations run as efficiently as possible.
