Repetitive Manufacturing module in Eresource ERP provides high volume manufacturing functionality and also provide for the transition to rate-based production by allowing the use of repetitive scheduling even for products that are not rate-based.
This feature allows a production facility to transition products from discreet manufacturing into repetitive focus. For example, when the demand pattern for an item begins to stabilize and show a repeatable / predictable pattern then a production schedule can be initiative even though the item may not be designated. Over the period of time, when the items demand pattern grows, the item can be switched to full rate based production scheduling.
This transition capability enables production facilities to adopt process reengineering, setup reduction programs, employee empowerment, work teams, etc., with the confidence of knowing that the planning and control system will effectively support their efforts. Repetitive focus includes strong analytic history provides current day, month-to-date, and year-to-date results as well as calculation of maximum and average production results per hour.
Repetitive Management process in eresource ERP can be used when a production plan for repetitive product manufacturing is created. The process of repetitive management also includes analysis, planning according to MRP.
Eresource ERP also creates one or more planned orders that have a direct reference to a sales order on the basis of which the material is produced. Repetitive Management features in eresource can be also used for Make to Stock production.
