Manufacturing Scheduling and Planning Software

MRP, APS, CTP, Forecasting, MPS, and more

The EnterpriseIQ Manufacturing Scheduling and Planning software modules go beyond just production scheduling. The powerful and flexible system is updated in real time from events occurring throughout the supply chain as well as within the Manufacturing software and ERP software system. It incorporates all requirements and objectives defined in the plan together with transactions entered externally through the Internet and internally through any of the integrated EnterpriseIQ ERP software modules. This information is analyzed to determine the optimal schedule that meets your customer demands as well as your lean business objectives. Bringing your organization:

•Demand driven, on-time delivery
•Accurate and timely planning
•Optimized use of available resources
•Reduced cycle times
•Minimized inventory costs
•Maximized plant floor throughput

Powerful Manufacturing Scheduling and Planning Software Modules

Capable to Promise -- A powerful "what if" capability encompasses the entire production process to determine availability of required raw materials, purchased parts, manufacturing time and more required to complete the required order.

Forecasting and Planning -- Real-time integration with order entry and sales modules allows for collaborative forecasting based on real-time data from throughout the enterprise.

Material Requirements and Resource Planning (MRP) -- The EnterpriseIQ MRP engine accurately and effectively manages all resources necessary to meet manufacturing demand, while maintaining lean inventory levels. It includes items manufactured internally and through third party vendors, as well as sub-assemblies.

Master Production Schedule (MPS) -- Defines all resources and costs required to meet the manufacturing demand (forecast, sales order, and dependent), current work orders (firm, generated, manual) and projected on hand balances (availability), converting the data to a production plan.

Advanced Planning and Scheduling System -- The flexible scheduling module executes the plans and allows real-time adjustments to allow for unplanned events while ensuring optimal throughput through the enterprise.

With IQMS' Manufacturing Production Planning and Scheduling software modules, you can now easily maintain customer satisfaction while ensuring conformance to plans and profitability across the enterprise.

Bill of Materials Software (BOM)

The IQMS Manufacturing Software Bill of Materials (BOM) is not just any BOM. The EnterpriseIQ Bill of Materials is defined by the manufacturing operation or process and includes; work centers, labor, tools, dies, inserts, fixtures, raw materials, packaging, scrap rates, setup times, yield, efficiency, multipliers, auxiliary equipment, etc. The graphical representation displays part numbers and the relationships between packaging, inserted components and secondary operations, tooling requirements, process notes and instructions.

If you are a manufacturer of products using bills of materials or formulas and are looking for a complete A-Z ERP solution, IQMS' manufacturing ERP is your answer.

BOM Software Features
• Supports multiple manufacturing type definitions. Each definition contains unique elements that complement the manufacturing method.
• Expandable to allow building of an unlimited number of Multi-level bills for component pieces as well as alternate and substitute BOM routings.
• Blend technology built in to handle recipes.
• Supports the management and scheduling of "pre-operations" such as blending or pre-processing.
• The Bill of Material automatically feeds the work order which can be scheduled on a work center. As a result, material, assembly and schedule             requirements are generated with extreme accuracy.
• Each manufacturing configuration can consume any kind of operation —internal or external.
• Define as many operations as needed including outside vendors and additional manufacturing standards.
• Outsourcing BOM is linked to the supplier to easily track external operations.
• Operations can consume additional labor, overhead and unlimited materials.
• Job Travelers support both internal and external documents and instructions.
• Flexible Units of Measure automatically convert material between grams, pounds or ounces.
•Family tools are supported and the system is designed to understand multiple part numbers within the same physical tool.

Manufacturing Inventory Software

Reduce Inventory Costs and Improve Tracking and Traceability from the Manufacturing Floor to the Warehouse

Inventory control may be the single most important factor in improving shop floor efficiency, part and materials accuracy and ultimately, your bottom line. From reducing physical inventory time to improving supplier communication or from tracking outsourced parts to forecasting necessary materials, the Manufacturing Inventory Software modules from IQMS helps you solve every supply chain challenge.

EnterpriseIQ's Inventory Software is built on facilitating lean manufacturing management principles with functions such as:

• Separate inventory master records for each manufacturing individual location (or "EPlant")
• Both eKanban and conventional Kanban control support
• Complete lot number tracking and traceability including supporting documents
• Serialized inventory control

The advanced inventory management tools within the EnterpriseIQ manufacturing ERP software solution provide all the functionality to store, track and fulfill orders based on real-time inventory information from the manufacturing floor, the warehouse, and outsourced and vendor locations.
