Enterprise Resource Planning Software For Manufacturing

Moulders Consulting: We Provide Top-Quality Enterprise Resource Planning Software For Manufacturing

At Moulders Consulting, our software isn’t your typical MRP/ERP system; it’s a tailor-made solution crafted exclusively for the Injection Moulding Industry by industry specialists. 

We’ve been at the helm of many successful ERP/MRP system implementations within our industry, and collectively we bring over 40 years of experience in the Plastic Injection Moulding sector, spanning roles like sales, marketing, operations, and management.

MRP, short for Materials Requirements Planning, is a critical step in injection moulding. It ensures that the right materials are on hand exactly when they’re needed, so that companies can consistently craft premium-quality products.

Here, we will outline the key steps involved in MRP for injection moulding:

1. Production Schedule Formation: Our MRP software formulates the production schedule, taking into account factors like customer demand, existing inventory levels, and other variables.

This data helps create a production plan, outlining the quantity of products to be manufactured within a set timeframe.

2. Material Requirements Calculation: With the production schedule in place, the next step is to calculate the precise material requirements.

This involves considering the quantity of products slated for production, identifying the materials needed for each product, and accounting for any potential waste or scrap during manufacturing.

3. Inventory Level Evaluation: After calculating material requirements, we shift focus to assessing inventory levels for the necessary materials. This step plays a crucial role in determining whether our current inventory can meet production demands, or if we need to place orders for additional materials.

4. Purchase Order Generation: In cases where our inventory falls short, our MRP system automatically generates purchase orders for the required materials. These orders come complete with all the essential details, including quantity, delivery dates, and other important information.

5. Progress Monitoring: Once purchase orders are set in motion, our MRP system keeps tabs on their progress, diligently tracking delivery dates and promptly flagging any potential issues or delays in the procurement process.

6. Plan Adaptation: Should there be any changes to the production schedule or issues with procuring materials, our MRP system is agile. It swiftly adjusts the plan to accommodate changes, ensuring production remains on track.

In essence, MRP plays a pivotal role in managing the materials essential for injection moulding, a critical factor in delivering high-quality products. Our MRP system ensures that the right materials are on hand when needed, a critical consideration in the injection moulding industry.
