An effective alternative for process planning management

With an Advanced Planning and Scheduling system in place, you’ll have leverage over alternative scenarios such as choosing to make an item, ship from an alternate warehouse, or purchase from a different supplier. State-of-the-art APS provides you with the option of making the best choice based on priority rules, total cost rules, or a penalty rule, ultimately putting flimsy MRP/ERP systems to shame.

Let’s take a look at some of your options moving forward.


Advanced Planning and Scheduling mends inadequate functions

Some APS solutions include:

  • Alternative manufacturing routes
  • Alternative production: Using different machines or outsourcing
  • Alternative suppliers for key materials or components

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)

DDMRP provides a direct line of sight into the nodes of your operations that might soon fail or fall short, allowing ample time for you to restock, adjust production, configure alternative delivery routes, and much more.
