Complete material requirements & resource planning
Meet your manufacturing demand and maintain lean inventory levels by accurately and effectively managing all your operational resources and requirements with IQMS’ MRP System module.
As well as managing manufactured item requirements and sub-assembly processes, the MRP system also manages requirements planning at multiple locations and third-party vendors.
As IQMS’ manufacturing software operates from a single database, the MRP can coordinate operations across your entire supply chain to quickly and accurately match availability with demand.
Material Requirements Planning
Unified time-phased planning window across both purchasing and production. IQMS’ MRP assesses material availability against scheduled manufacturing dates by taking into account current demand along side material lead times. Advanced planning functionality includes:
- Automated raw material ordering
- Both hard and soft allocation
- Ideal versus existing analysis
- Minimum and maximum planning
Labour Capacity Planning
Meet production schedules by week, day or shift by assessing work orders against your standard labour schedules.
- Evaluate available labour resources by category and qualifications
- Schedule operators by skill level
Auxiliary Equipment Planning
Starting with the bill of material, the MRP checks for availability and identifies conflicts of auxiliary equipment.
Machine & Work Centre Capacity Planning
Evaluate machine availability against variables that may affect production capacity such as maintenance, setup, etc. If production cannot be achieved in the requested schedule, the MRP will identify the first available time and date that orders can be fulfilled. View availability by type or individual machine by day, week or month.
Rough Cut Capacity Planning
Compare work centre time availability based on the shop floor calendar against required hours per machine type.
