Web-based Enterprise Resource Planning Solution Exhibits Lean Approach


SSI's approach appeals to process manufacturers, as well as some discrete manufacturers with short lead times and high volumes, where the traditional manufacturing resource planning (MRP) approach often shows many shortcomings (and can even be a recipe for disaster).

ssi  Strategic Systems International ( SSI ) ( http://www.ssi-world.com ), uses manufacturing resource planning (MRP) for long-term planning, and master production scheduling (MPS) for short-term scheduling.

Even in such a volatile stock market and under investor/regulatory scrutiny, going public as a means of getting some capital investment is still an option -- the most recent examples being Deltek and NetSuite.
