Case Study: Peerless Pump


Peerless Pump has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing pumps for more than 80 years. The company was basing component stock levels on historical data, as it did not have the ability to accurately forecast customer demand. But with forecasting and demand planning software that increased forecast accuracy, the company has nearly doubled its sales over the past four years, while keeping inventory levels constant.

MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations


The need for better service parts management is finally gaining top-level management attention in many aerospace and defense (A&D) and like complex manufacturing companies, since excessive carrying costs and obsolescence losses are being recognized as an unexploited opportunity for savings and a better bottom line performance

mrp prediction  native ability to run MRP by condition code is not a feature typically found amongst a majority of mainstream ERP systems. To enable an ERP system to track the condition of a component (e.g., new, overhauled, once used, refurbished, or a combination of these) and to restrict mixing inventories of materials with different condition codes, would require a colossal modification. When a system does not have this condition code capability, the MRO operation will then need to use multiple item numbers. This Read More

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part Three: Meeting Federal Requirements


Companies that are not already offering the capabilities of meeting the exacting, stringent requirements of federal agencies will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in the federal and defense markets. Conversely, those vendors and their users--government contractors--who can deliver comprehensive solutions that satisfy the requirements of federal agencies are in the driver's seat to capture that market segment.

mrp prediction  for inventory management and MRP-based supply planning by condition code. While these functionalities may sound ordinary and appear to be offered by many vendors as supported'' when responding to requests for information (RFI), subsequent product demonstration often reveals the need for some tweaking or even for a major modification in order to satisfy stringent customer requirements. The devil is always in details. For a detailed discussion see MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations . Challenges Read More

ERP Beginner's Guide In So Many Words


ERP remains the information backbone for contemporary manufacturing enterprises. However, today's ERP systems are required to address more than traditional processes taking place within the walls of an enterprise. This is a concise ERP reference guide for anyone needing a general knowledge of ERP features and the ramifications of implementing it (or not).

mrp prediction  as an enhancement to MRP by integrating other manufacturing company''s resources, particularly shop floor, accounting and distribution management. In the early 1990s, MRP-II was further extended to cover areas like engineering, finance, human resources, project management, etc. namely, the comprehensive breadth of activities within any (not only manufacturing) business enterprise. Therefore, the new acronym ERP was coined to reflect the fact that these computerized systems had evolved well beyond their Read More

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

mrp prediction  software which has excellent MRP and MPS capabilities is a must. Materials Planning When fulfilling your orders, you cannot assume infinites. That is, you cannot assume you have infinite manufacturing capacity available, infinite access to quantities of raw material, and that infinite quantities of work in progress (WIP) materials can be produced by your manufacturing units. You always have fixed suppliers who supply fixed quantities of raw materials. Suppliers may be able to stretch a bit to give you Read More

For example, when MRP first came out, companies that had software for MRP were really hot, and consultants who could actually implement MRP and had the domain expertise of MRP for different industries were in big demand. Of course, what happens is after a while, say a decade or so, those concepts become mature, and it''s hard to be a thought leader on old thoughts—it''s much easier to be a thought leader on new things. After MRP, supply chain came around along with the APS approach to Read More
