Never Ship Late Again: Acumatica Manufacturing ERP Advanced Planning

Never Ship Late Again: Acumatica Manufacturing ERP Advanced Planning

Acumatica Manufacturing ERP helps you consistently meet customer demands by setting accurate delivery dates based on the actual resource availability.

You know the feeling and you hate it. That moment when you realize that nothing can be done. The only thing left to do is call your customer and give them the bad news: their order will be delayed because of a part that's not on hand.

Advanced Planning works inside Acumatica Manufacturing ERP to help determine your delivery dates with real-time resource data, so your shipments always leave on time and you never have to disappoint another customer again.

Maximize your resources

Resource planning is a zero-sum game. If you give to one, you must take from another because capacity is not infinite. The best way to ensure projects get done on time is to expertly plan resource schedules without overloading your staff, machines, or work centers. Easy-to-use tooling constraints help make sure your production team has what they need to get the jobs done on time.

The Acumatica Manufacturing Edition (AME) enables you to schedule the tools needed on projects easily because the system tells you how much work can be produced with resources on hand in any given timeframe. That means you'll see bottlenecks before they're an issue. 

Prioritize with Rough Cut Capacity Planning (RCCP)

Not all orders are or should be treated equally. When you want or need to prioritize orders for high-profile or high-priority customers, the Acumatica RCCP feature makes it simple. Assigning Priority Codes to your production orders enables easy prioritization of production orders for scheduling.

Your orders are loaded and scheduled based on priority, constraint dates, and production order number. The availability of material (e.g. supply orders such as purchase orders, transfer orders, or component production orders) is calculated and factored into production schedules automatically by the system.

Holistic Work Center Capacity Planning

Balancing demand against work center capacity is part art and part science. It all starts with a holistic and comprehensive understanding of available and burdened capacity at your work centers required for your projects. Acumatica Advanced Planning for Manufacturers takes out the guess work so you can clearly see available hours in a center. 

In times of unforeseen circumstances, Acumatica Advanced Planning for Manufacturers  allows users to load balance at times of increased demand, or worst-case scenario, when a work center is down due to a hurricane or power outage, etc. In minutes, you can see the orders that will be impacted, see the centers with availability, and then rebalance the workload to keep orders shipping on time.
