NetSuite Manufacturing Supply Chain Enhancements

NetSuite Manufacturing Supply Chain Enables Agility and Better Business Continuity

If you're like most manufacturers recently, you've experienced supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic or global tariffs. However, businesses running NetSuite for manufacturing and supply chain management avoided much of the chaos that caused others to rethink how they source materials. Read more about recent enhancements in NetSuite 2020 Release 2 to learn how manufacturers cope with some of these challenges.

NetSuite ERP Consultant, Nashville, TN
The NetSuite 2020 Release 2 gives manufacturers the agility they need to pivot quickly in a changing environment. NetSuite's capabilities are designed to bring more insight and create more efficiency in your business. It's a modern ERP solution that includes everything from manufacturing, supply planning, and allocation to warehouse management and finances.

Completely re-architected MRP

NetSuite’s new material requirements planning (MRP) capabilities for supply planning is available to customers who are using NetSuite Demand Planning. It's redesigned with a completely new architecture. It features a dedicated planning repository that ensures you can make decisions based on timely data. 

  • Monitor, firm up, or release orders for approval
  • Review and accept action or exception messages individually or in bulk
    information provides planners full visibility into how demand is allocated to supply.
NetSuite's Planning Workbench feature lets you filter and examine data by product line, plan, location, or user-defined item categories. NetSuite highlights situations that require attention, so you can avoid shortages and overruns of supplies. You'll also be able to do what-if analysis for simulating multiple plans.

Greater insights into potential risks 

NetSuite manufacturing users get even greater insight into risks on items not shipping on time with the capabilities of Intelligent Predicted Risks. This feature has now been extended to include sales orders. Purchase orders can be marked at risk and you'll see alternate vendors based on new machine learning algorithms. 

Get even more precise supply allocation by allowing inbound shipments to be with the associated purchase orders. Also, fill rate optimization intelligently allocates on-hand supply to fulfill as many sales order lines as possible.

Pick goods without bins

NetSuite WMS added has the ability to receive, transfer, and pick goods from a warehouse without bins. Companies with retail stores or small warehouses will now have the ability to use hand-held picking without the overhead of managing bins.

Financial and operational excellence

You can now consolidate multiple invoices into a single invoice using invoice groups. This feature allows payments accepted at the group level to be applied to individual invoices. You will reduce manual grouping, increase invoice accuracy, and improve cash flow by decreasing your days sales outstanding.
