Material requirements planning (MRP) software helps companies maintain the minimal amount of inventory to satisfy current and future demand. Yet when an MRP system is disconnected from production records and other shop floor data, a critical gap hinders the ability to collect, connect and analyze the data. MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence™ fills this gap, extending MRP systems to the shop floor for a holistic view of production and quality data.
Improve your manufacturing processes with our free resources.
MRP is a tool for inventory control, materials management and procurement planning. It is intended to help production managers keep as little on-hand inventory as possible. This minimizes carrying costs and waste, while satisfying current and future demand and fulfilling planned orders.
Disconnected data sources limit the ability to glean data-driven performance insights. The Manufacturing Excellence solution can digitally integrate an MRP system with electronic production records. This optimizes the flow of information for greater visibility and efficiency.
Manually entering data onto paper increases the opportunity for errors. Eliminate the preventable errors and costly waste created by manual data entry to achieve right-first-time (RFT) production.
People on the manufacturing line no longer need to rely on paper to manage production and quality data. An integrated electronic production record system removes remaining paper from the shop floor.
Preventing errors and delays caused by paper can reduce the friction between manufacturing operations and QA priorities and metrics. The result is improved line performance and accelerated production.
Integrate your MRP with electronic production records for a complete, accurate view of manufacturing data within your business.Download Now
