Bill of Materials (BoM)

View to your product structure tree

Bills of Materials (BOM) are normally accessed according to production or procurement deadlines. The History Management function allows several types of BOM to be managed simultaneously, and can be operated according to the needs of the customer.

Single Level Bills of materials and Multi Level Bills of Material can be generated in eresource ERP. For each manufactured line item on a WO, the system provides a bill of materials (BOM) and routing. In the single Level bill of materials only those subordinate components can be captured that are immediately required to manufacture the product.

The multiple BOM concept aids the management of a variety of similar BOMs (variant problem). Common components of similar BOMs are recorded in a 'Reference BOM-M' while components specific to individual BOMs are recorded in a separate 'Single Level BOM-M'. In this way, the BOM of a given material consists of a combination of data referring to common and individual components.

The advantage of this function is that changes of (data regarding) common components need only be carried out in the Reference BOM-M.

The data of BOMs is automatically shown against the work orders providing the ability to include configured items on a WO's BOM.

This gives the stores department to check if the stock of materials is available for a product manufacturing or batch manufacturing. Once the individual customer order is entered, it specifies how much components are required, the quantity including wastage and at what level of production the components will be required.

eresource ERP Bills of Materials are completely integrated into the system and support:

The procurement of materials at the optimum time (Material Requirement Planning module)
The placing of production orders (Production Planning and Control Module)
The issue of goods (Inventory Management Module)

Warehouse Management

Manufacturers who make a substantial number of shipments from a distribution facility have likely considered bringing a degree of automation to its warehouse and shipping functions.

For some companies, a full-blown Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a necessity, particularly if their operation relies on an automated racking system, perhaps housed in a rack-mounted structure with its own track-mounted materials-handling system.

However, for the vast majority of manufacturers - even those that complete a large number of shipments every day - a WMS that is separate and distinct from their other business systems will be counterproductive.

Flexibility and adaptability

You may have the hottest product ready to hit market. You may have the best marketing campaign ever conceived. You may have phones ringing off the hook with interested prospects. You may have all this and more. But the simple fact remains that, if you cannot locate, pick, pack, and ship material and products that's in your warehouse, these great feats go for naught. A significant under pining of any successful company is an agile, proactive, and responsive Warehouse Management System (WMS).

An effective WMS can reduce human errors by preventing product from being putaway in the wrong location, picking the wrong product, or picking the correct product but in the wrong quantity. Additionally, such a system can increase the productivity of the warehouse by reducing traveling time, maximizing the use of available space, and suggesting moves for better space utilization.

Master Production Schedule

Eresource ERP Master Production Scheduling System considers all significant demands and replenishments that are identified for production, and translates those demands into a supply demand schedule for manufacturing.

Eresource ERP Master Production Scheduling system is used in conjunction with Material Requirements Planning (MRP) to schedule finished goods production and raw materials requirements when and where they are required.

Simply put it, Eresource ERP Master Production Scheduling system translates a business plan with forecasted demand (sales orders) into a workable production plan (supply orders). A typical production plan would consist of planned orders in a multi-level (Bill of Material - BOM) scheduling environment.

Eresource ERP Master Production Scheduling system quickly and accurately schedules all item requirements for each manufacturing facility.

Some of the benefits of using Master Production Schedule module are it helps last minute scheduling, shortage avoidance, efficient allocations of resources and cost control. It gives the customer timely information on what they need and when they need. Eresource ERP's MPS module organizes what the customer need to do and when efficiently. The schedule can be re-calculated easily when a process fails, for example, the situations like a material shortage or manpower absence.

Material Requirement Planning (MRP)

For any growing business enterprises it is important to have a reliable and user-friendly ERP system with a genuine MRP module. Eresource ERP's Material Requirements Planning can organize, schedule and reschedule materials as far into the future as required.

Every organization has its own strategy to achieve pre-conceived target contradictory to working ideas expressed by their marketing or accounts departments. The marketing group wants to make sure there are enough inventories on hand to fulfill all customer requests, the accounting group is charged with keeping cost down, which includes keeping inventory levels low. In the middle is the inventory control group.

Eresource ERP's MRP gives you an instant picture of projected inventory investment levels, as well as projected new purchases in accordance with your plan. Projections can be made on any MRP cycle. This provides an added dimension of visibility for directing the planning focus on the most significant areas of your investment. This also helps you to validate a plan financially and make swift adjustments before committing your cash.

The aim of the eresource ERP's Material Requirements Planning (MRP) document is to supply information that will enable the company to have enough inventory on hand to fulfill demand, available only when needed, at a quality level that meets specification, and at the lowest price. Eresource ERP's MRP module can provide the basic needs of keeping inventory levels low and fulfilling customer expectations for on time delivery.

Eresource ERP's Material Requirements Planning or MRP assists you in getting material on hand when needed for production or sales. The four basic information provided by the eresource MRP module are: informing you (1) when to place an order, (2) how much quantity to be ordered, (2) who should be the supplier and (4) when the items to be delivered to you.

MRP software and MRP module of ERP

Material Requirement Planning, popularly known as MRP, was developed during 1960s. This was a proactive manner of inventory management. This technique fundamentally explodes the end product demand obtained from the 'Master Production Schedule' (MPS) for a specified product structure (which is taken from Bill of Material) into a detailed schedule of purchase order or production orders, taking into account the inventory on hand.

MRP is a simple logic but the magnitude of data involved in a realistic situation makes it computationally cumbersome. If undertaken manually, the entire process is highly time consuming. It therefore becomes essential to use a computer to carry out the exercise.

MRP successfully demonstrated its effectiveness in reduction of inventory; production and delivery lead times by improving coordination and avoiding delays, thus making commitment more realistic. MRP proved to be a very good technique for managing inventory, but it did not take into account of other resources of an organization. Due to this shortcoming a modified MRP logic, popularly known as 'closed loop MRP' has been developed. A new module called Capacity Requirement Planning (CRP) has been incorporated in this. This module manages the capacity of the organization to produce a particular product. A feedback loop is provided from the CRP module to MPS if there is not enough capacity available to produce.

Later the need was felt to integrate the financial resource with the manufacturing activities. From this evolved an integrated manufacturing management system called Manufacturing Resources Planning (MRP II).

Transition from MRP II to ERP happened some time later because the basic MRP II system design was suffering from a few inherent drawbacks such as limited focus to manufacturing activities, assumption of the mass or repetitive production set ups, and poor budgetary and costing controls.

The shortcomings o MRP-II and the need to integrate these new techniques, led to the development of a total integrated solution called Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), which attempts to integrate the transactions of suppliers and customers with the manufacturing and service environment of the organization to produce the best possible plan. Today there are further development in the ERP concept and evolution of Web-enabled ERP.

Manufacturing Resource Planning - MRP II

MRP II or Manufacturing Resource Planning by itself is the original modality of what we know now as ERP, and covered materials planning. This is part of eresource's ERP solution.

MRP II is one of the evolution stages of eresource ERP and covers all the resources in a manufacturing company, with the additional ability to manage "what if" situations.

MRP II module in eresource ERP helps to maintain a neat agenda for the manner in which the resources are to be allocated without any confusion.

The interacting functions considered for this model are: Commercial Planning, Sales, Master Production Scheduling, Materials Resource Planning (MRP) and support systems for Capacity and Materials Execution.

There is a scheduling capability within the heart of the solution that concentrates on the resources, such as the plant and equipment required to convert the raw materials into finished goods. The advantages of this development are that detailed plans can be put to the shop floor and can be reported on by operation, which offers much tighter control over the plant.

ERP Software Companies

During the olden days, a large number of people who were connected with the ERP sector such as analysts, programmers and users did the implementation of ERP systems in a single firm. Now, as we all know, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) relies on very large and complex software, the main reason being its extensive function within the organization.

However, due to the advent of the internet, consultants are now able to connect to company computers for any basic installation such as those of standard updates.

Nowadays, a trend catching up is that of web-based ERP systems. These ERP systems can be downloaded easily through web browsers. The major advantage of these web-based ERP's is that they traverse multiple platforms and can be maintained from one centralized location. There is no requirement for a client installation to deploy them.

If we go by today's standards, customization is the buzzword for every ERP system implementation. The main reason for this the generic nature of the ERP packages as far as their reports and examinations are concerned. As the ERP System may pr may not be customized according to the needs of the customer, it can be said that it is the customization that makes the ERP a super success or an abject failure.

In the olden days, the main problem in customizing and implementing an ERP was that there were no ERP Software companies which were concerned with this line of work. This is however not the case anymore. There are a whole number of ERP Software companies that have sprung up in recent times, which are exclusively focused in the ERP domain. Some of the most reputed ERP Software companies are SAP, Oracle, BAAN, etc. However, these companies were more into Windows-based installation rather than Web-Base installation. One of the major players in the web-based ERP Software Company market is the Mumbai-based eresource ERP.

These ERP Software companies basically send experts over to study the system, the business processes, etc. and give suggestions as to how the existing system can be tailored to suit an ERP installation. It is not required that the entire ERP system belonging to the ERP Software Company be installed at the client location. Just the basic modification of the existing ERP system at the client location by the ERP Software Company is sufficient.

It is the responsibility of the ERP Software Company to send people over to the client so as to train their existing personnel in the workings of the newly installed ERP system. Thus, the education, subsequent training, and any sort of troubleshooting of the newly installed ERP system, is concerned is borne by the ERP software company. This is a very important factor as far as operating and ERP system is concerned.

What is an ERP software license means

An software can be termed as consumer software and this enterprise applicathttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifion software is typically not bought and sold instead it is licensed for use. It may be licensed to be used by a company, on a particular computer or by other criteria such as number of users. Buying it once doesn't mean you can duplicate it and share it with all your friends, or even sometimes use it on all your own computers. For enterprise application software how you pay for that license and the term of the license can vary.

Today, a software license can be perpetual. This means you pay for it once and can use the enterprise application forever. Even in this case more often a perpetual license agreement might have a stipulation that you have the right to use that software only for as long as you continue to pay maintenance to the software vendor that provides the product.

A maintenance agreement, which is a recurring cost, typically provides both technical support and certain innovations. Some of those innovations will bhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gife included in your maintenance fee and others may still need to be purchased. Maintenance is typically priced as a percentage of the software license.

But perpetual licenses are not the only type offered. Instead your license might be for a specific period of time. This is generally referred to as a "term" license. At the end of the term, you must either renew the license or discontinue use of the software.
