Improve Production Planning Efficiency
Due to the lack of automation, production companies often struggle when trying to make their production planning effective:
1C:Drive production planning software provides robust instruments for supply chain planning and optimization, including order management system, production scheduling, BOM management, materials planning and control – all in a single solution. Integrated data flow and sophisticated automation allow businesses to always understand the production lead time and the availability of equipment, materials, and components.
Gain Confidence in Your MRP (Material Resource Planning)
Excel-based and manual material resource planning (MRP) are outdated and lead to an overwhelming number of mistakes. Production companies that use this approach often struggle with:
1C:Drive production planning software is designed to serve production companies and help them with their MRP and supply chain planning. ERP in production allows businesses to fully understand what is needed to process any order (based on the product BOM) and meet the deadline, what components are missing, what should be purchased and accurately calculate the lead time.
Avoid Non-Optimal Usage of Production Equipment
Manual planning and lack of automation also make it difficult for production companies to keep track of their business processes and flexibly adapt to the changing environment, including:
With multi-level BOM (Bill of Materials) in 1C:Drive production planning software, you can see the complete list of routing operations and components required to make the product, estimate the workcenters workload, and plan your procurement. The overall production schedule shows the full picture of the workload. In case of changing or cancellation of the baseline order you can reschedule the original production plan based on the updated information. With ERP in production, you can create production orders based on the client's order and track everything starting from this point.
Improve Production Analysis to Find New Points of Growth
Automation helps boost planning and unlock growth points. Manual planning does not allow production companies to:
Multiple reports for the ongoing production plan execution control in 1C:Drive allow you to analyze deviations in the plan, track deadlines, and get all the information for better understanding of potential risks such as equipment shortages, lack of materials, or employee work time. 24x7x365 monitoring significantly boosts the quality of produced goods and streamlines business processes across the whole company, from demand planning & sales orders management to production planning and control.
Control Revenue, Production Costs and Order Statuses
High-quality cost calculation and profit planning are crucial for any production company that wants to stay competitive in the modern market. However, the lack of automation makes it challenging to effectively solve these tasks. The list of possible issues includes:
With the 1C:Drive order management software, production companies can get a 360-degree view of their profitability and business performance, calculate production costs, minimum order cost and order profitability, and accelerate turnover of working capital by optimizing the turnover of production materials.
Be Prepared for Changes
Changes in orders and issues with suppliers are common problems for many production companies. Unfortunately, businesses have almost no options to effectively tackle these issues with the traditional Excel-based approach to business management and planning.
Specialized order management software included in the 1C:Drive allows tracking the whole process from receiving an order to its production. You can create a purchase order or production order based on the customer order. When a change is made to an underlying document, you can easily adjust the corresponding documents above in the chain. This speeds up decision-making in response to changes in circumstances like non-availability of work centers, issues with suppliers, delays of materials, or changes in customer’s orders.
