The Acumatica Manufacturing Edition is ideal for manufacturing companies that need robust production scheduling software functionality. The solution is suited for different types of manufacturing processes including make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order, project-centric, job shop, batch, and repetitive manufacturing. The Acumatica production scheduling software capabilities help production planning based on historical sales which factor into the production plans. Manufacturers are empowered with the right data to respond to changing market conditions, new products, aging products, etc. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of the new production scheduling software capabilities.

5 Production Scheduling Software Benefits in the Acumatica Manufacturing Edition

  1. Production Order Planning - Production planning is simplified in the Acumatica Manufacturing Edition to suggest which components to purchase and when. In addition, production planning helps balance on-hand inventory with customer demand while also avoiding shortages and helps limit carrying excess materials.
  2. Smart Analysis – One feature Acumatica customers love is that the system automatically analyzes the on-hand quantities of sub-assemblies as well as finished goods and compares them to the forecast sales. This analysis triggers suggested production orders to meet the requirements of the end-item forecast. Users can check for shortages as they release production orders. It also helps manage the production process so it's as efficient as possible. This increased visibility ensures finished goods are available for customer orders when they are required.
  3. Costing from Various Sources - Costs are captured in the purchasing and production cycles for things like materials, labor and various types of overhead. Users can break down budget and actual costs by work center so that production managers have visibility into work center loads and cost drivers.
  4. Real-time Inventory Tracking - All production transactions trigger corresponding inventory transactions in real time. This helps ensure that inventory levels are accurately reflected for planning purposes and promising product to customers.
  5. Data for Decision Makers - Acumatica provides information to users directly and provides data to external reporting tools. Therefore, managers and decision makers are empowered to keep tabs on the entire production process.
