Production Planning

The ability to plan production depends upon all stock required to be taken into account. Some sources of these are:

  • Sales Orders. Orders from customers.
  • Bill of Materials. The raw materials required to manufacture/assemble an item.
  • Using sales forecasts to predict future sales.
  • Stock flagged as being below a minimum level.
  • Decanting (Production) batches already created.
  • Jobs requiring tock items.

Reports can then be extracted which show the stock items which need to be manufactured/assembled.
