ERP For Batch Manufacturing

Moulders Consulting: Offering A Top-Quality Batch Manufacturing ERP

At Moulders Consulting, our software is a custom Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution meticulously designed for the manufacturing industry by experts with extensive experience in the field.

Using our background of over 40 years of combined experience in manufacturing – encompassing sales, marketing, operations, and management – we have successfully implemented numerous ERP/MRP systems within the sector.

MRP, which stands for Materials Requirements Planning, plays a vital role in the manufacturing process, ensuring that the right materials are readily available at the right time to produce top-quality products.

The MRP process unfolds in a structured sequence of steps, as outlined below:

Production Schedule Determination: Commencing with the formulation of the production schedule, an analysis of various factors such as customer demand and existing inventory levels is conducted. This results in the calculation of the quantity of products slated for production within a specified timeframe, serving as the foundational basis for the ensuing production plan.

Material Requirements Calculation: Subsequently, the system undertakes a comprehensive calculation of material requirements. This involves a detailed examination of the quantity of products earmarked for production and the corresponding materials essential for each product. Consideration is given to potential wastage, ensuring a comprehensive assessment.

Inventory Level Verification: Upon the determination of material requirements, the system proceeds to verify that existing inventory levels suffice to meet the production imperatives. This validation process ensures that the requisite materials are readily available for the impending production activities.              

Purchase Order Generation: In cases where inventory levels prove insufficient, the MRP system initiates the generation of purchase orders for the necessary materials. These purchase orders meticulously outline the required quantity, delivery date, and other pertinent information.                          

Progress Tracking: Once purchase orders are dispatched, the MRP system diligently monitors their progress. This involves tracking delivery dates and meticulously documenting any encountered delays or issues.                             

Production Plan Adjustment: In the event of alterations to the production schedule or the emergence of delays or issues concerning materials, the MRP system exhibits adaptability. It promptly adjusts the production schedule to align with the evolving circumstances, ensuring a seamless operational continuum.

An effective MRP system plays a crucial role in ensuring that the right materials are available at the right time, which is a vital factor in producing high-quality products.
