SAP Business One offers a simple yet powerful planning system that helps you expand your business beyond traditional boundaries by digitally connecting supplier networks, create omni-channel sales and distribution, operate proactively with insight, apply predictive real-time analytics and deliver automation throughout the value chain.
As your small to medium-sized manufacturing company grows, so does the complexity of anticipating demand, predicting problems and meeting consumer demand, profitably. SAP Business One Manufacturing can help your teams ensure they have the necessary materials, equipment and labour available – managing the risk of delay.
You can use data and intelligence to transform production planning, by anticipating changes in demand, supply and manufacturing capacities, as well as gaining a better understanding of where to make efficiency and cost savings. There are numerous gains from streamlining production processes, when sharing information with suppliers.
Manage inventory using various costing models, maintain item master data, and use multiple units of measure and pricing.
Manage stock in multiple warehouses, by dividing each one into multiple subzones, set up allocation rules, optimise stock movement and reduce picking times.
Record goods receipts and issues; track stock locations and transfers; enable consignment, drop-ship, and other orders; and perform inventory and cycle counts.
Create and maintain multilevel bills of materials (BOMs), issue and release production orders manually or by backflush and globally maintain prices for BOMs.
Forecasts allow users to predict demand based on potential future requirements, instead of relying solely on received orders. Forecast calculations help users foresee future demand for the product and adjust material planning accordingly. These demand forecasts can be used in the MRP wizard.
The MRP planning wizard takes users through the process of creating planning scenarios in five easy steps. Users define the planning horizon, which can be viewed in weeks or days. They can also opt to exclude non-working days from the production and purchase planning.
Once a scenario is executed, the solution presents a recommendation to 'make' or 'buy' items in a recommendation report. Drill-down options are available to allow planners to view the net requirement calculations and view the actual documents driving the gross requirements. Exception warnings and visual queries are also available. These help users identify orders that need to be expedited.
From the recommendation report, planners can automatically select recommended production orders and purchase orders for automatic creation. If an item needs to be outsourced, the system allows planners to easily convert a production order to a purchase order. Purchase orders to the same supplier can be optionally consolidated into one order, streamlining the purchasing process.
