The Extended Pack edition of Microsoft Dynamics GP delivers powerful manufacturing management solutions, including the Material Requirements Planning module. This module enables you to adjust procurement and production with more precision. It delivers greater visibility into material requirements, detailed vendor information, and flexible planning and analysis tools, all of which helps ensure proactive planning, smart procurement decisions, and precise adjustments to production. Make sure your supplies flow in when and where they are needed, helping to reduce stock outages, drive down inventory costs, and streamline your production process.
Manage your production planning with maximum efficiency and precision. Easy access and visibility to forecasts and sales orders renders production planning more effective and enables more detailed analysis of recommendations drawn from data. You get tighter control over your production planning. Site-specific inventory planning gives you the flexibility to manage each site according to its own specific needs.
Issue purchase orders easily and efficiently. Suggestions from the Material Requirements Planning module can be easily converted to purchase orders, and that helps to ensure that your flow of materials synchronizes with your production planning. When you combine multiple requirements into a minimum number of orders, workflow is accelerated and simplified.
Access, monitor, and analyze critical data more easily and effectively. The Material Requirements Planning module tracks up to 26 different material requirements categories and offers flexible order suggestions, including “what if” scenarios. An in-depth multi-level pegging tree improves supply chain and demand visibility. The option for manual plan generation gives you increased flexibility, and expanded querying processes improve planning and analysis. For example, you can reduce the risk of item shortages with the Projected Available Balance inquiry.
