Make to Stock Strategy
SYSPRO ERP is an end-to-end business management software platform, enabling Make-To-Stock manufacturers to streamline forecast-to-invoice processes, improve planning and simplify financial management. Here are just some of the features built for make to stock manufacturing organizations.
Process Sales Orders More Efficiently
SYSPRO’s Sales Orders system enables you to boost customer service through fast, efficient order processing; accurate, timely order fulfilment; and comprehensive backorder management. Maximize sales by providing instant access to customer sales history, as well as stock pricing, current and future availability and product substitutions.
Enforce Quality and Consistency
SYSPRO’s Engineering Change Control (ECC), Bill of Materials, Work-in-Progress and Factory Documentation applications enable you to implement controls to ensure that your products are manufactured under consistent processes, to the correct designs and specifications.
Optimize Inventory Levels
SYSPRO’s Inventory Management suite enables comprehensive demand management, as well as enforcement of stock policies. The system helps to determine the optimum levels required for safety stock, seasonal stock and basic stock, by factoring in considerations such as depletion rate, target service-level, standard demand deviation, order lead time and lead time variability.
In addition, SYSPRO ERP software features Forecasting and Families and Groupings capabilities, which enable you to refine predictions of future sales based on past history, trends, seasonality, Pareto analysis and non-quantitative factors. Track forecast errors closely so you can adjust quickly.
Ensure Component Traceability
SYSPRO’s lot traceability and serial tracking features enable you to monitor components and ingredients in case of recalls or other quality issues.
Gain Control Over Costs
SYSPRO features extensive costing control and tracking including the ability to model the effects of “what-if” material, labor and manufacturing route costs. Costing methods by warehouse – as well as the ability to track actual and activity-based costs – makes it easier to ensure that products are costed appropriately.
Streamline Factory Operations
SYSPRO’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES), powered by LYNQ, enables you to build a complete profile of your factory capacity. Planning Manager, Workforce Manager and Factory Manager have been designed to help you increase output and reduce costs by automating your business processes and connecting your factory.
Manage jobs more efficiently with SYSPRO’s Work in Progress module, with day-to-day monitoring of job-related activities, costs, scrap and exception events. And, you can integrate with best-of-breed shop-floor data collection systems via SYSPRO’s e.net Solutions.
