Calculation of Need

Better calculations are not only good for profit, it is also good for the environment

Functional calculation of need and a strong logistics module

Manufacturing companies have a great need to always have the right raw materials and capacity available. We have therefore had a great focus on creating a function-rich needs calculation and a strong logistics module. Our needs calculation is based on a Net or Gross calculation to find the need. Calculations can be made based on minimum stock, forecast or budget, offer or order or a combination of these. If the need is calculated based on one of these methods, the total need will come up. It is possible to select by project, department or other groupings. It can be selected by supplier, selected suppliers or supplier groups. And/or select different product groups. The result can again be selected according to production, purchasing needs. You will have a full overview of the need, what you have in stock, what is expected to arrive and when, as well as what is on departure. There are great opportunities for doing simulation to optimise purchasing. It is easy to switch to an alternative supplier to check delivery times/prices with different suppliers.

When the needs calculation has been run, you can choose to combine all similar products into one purchase order line or if you want to split the purchase order into many purchase order lines with different delivery dates. It is possible to set up different phases of the purchase so that the superior can approve purchases based on different criteria such as the value of the purchase order. For those customers who produce components or semi-finished products that go into many different products, and if they want to produce these for stock, these can at least be managed. If you want to manage a minimum of a semi-finished product, the system can be set up so that a production order is automatically generated with the series number that is most optimal when the minimum level is reached.
