Prescription Drug Manufacturing Suites

Manufacturing
  • Aboard Active ERP/MRP
  • Visual Ledger MRP
  • Small Business Consolidator MRP
  • Enterprise Integrator MRP

Simply put, our new Process Manufacturing MRP Suites can run your business optimally, without any need for human intervention. Our Automatic Procurement, Automatic Commitment and Shop Floor Scheduler modules will create Purchase Orders and Work Orders, and then schedule those Work Orders into your plant floor for production using Artificial Intelligence Algorithms.

Proactive actions based on our Artificial Intelligence Algorithms calculate the best solution for your Supply Chain Schedule. This innovative design combines two completely new approaches to MRP:
  • Having an automatic agent dynamically and proactively evaluate and adjust your Supply Chain Schedule without human intervention
  • Applying Artificial Intelligence Algorithms to keep your Supply Chain and Production Schedules running at peak throughput

And a single powerful screen, the Inventory and Manufacturing Dashboard, allows you to query the Automated Supply Chain Schedule and dynamically adjust it to your spot priorities.

Even though you need to do nothing for our Suites to run your Supply Chain and Production Schedule maximized and without any human intervention, you still retain optional full control over every aspect of your operations.

The inventories of Raw Materials, WIP and Finished Goods are scheduled for “just in time” availability, and your production is scheduled to minimize your plant costs and the financial load of inactive inventory.

These are not traditional MRP Software Suites, our new Suites are proactive in running your business, and they do it intelligently. And they provide unprecedented accuracy and availability of information.

From very accurate costing and inventory valuations to shop floor scheduling, our solutions provide the best combination of power and performance with ease of use and user friendliness.

Very accurate costing and inventory valuations provide the ultimate tool for analysis of your Cost of Goods Sold and the financial cost of your available Inventory.

Inventory forecasting allows the production plans to provide the right levels of inventory by seasonally adjusting the forecasts.

Sophisticated yet simple to use, our integrated automatic Shop Floor Scheduler and Manufacturing Dashboard provide real automated resource planning, calculating production plans and scheduling resources on the shop to best manage production based on your sales and inventory requirements.
  • Proactive running of your Supply Chain and Production Schedule
    • Automatic and proactive generation of Work Orders and Purchase orders to comply with actual demand, forecasts of future demands and minimum inventory requirements, creating a "just in time" inventory flow schedule.
    • Automatic optimal scheduling of your Shop Floor Schedule, with rules-based description of your plant processes and flexible Bills of Resources for your Items.
  • Interactive Graphic Display of Production Dependencies
    • At any point of your Supply Chain Schedule you can request to display a graph of the product order dependencies for any order, showing:
      • dependencies of Sales Orders on Work Orders
      • dependencies of Work Orders on Purchase Orders
      • the entire supply chain subset for any group of orders with mutual or shared dependencies
    • Users can display individual Sales Orders, Work Orders and Purchase Orders directly from the schedule dependencies graph.
    • Impossible procurement requirements, like shipping date requests that cannot be complied with, are identified and displayed in different color to easily review the schedule graph.
  • Production Costs
    • Accurate calculation of production costs, based on the actual quantities used, even accounting for inefficiencies, spills, breakage, etc.
    • Production costs include non-inventory cost components like labor of different kinds, machine time, electricity, water, etc.
    • We know that in your business a fraction of a penny saved per unit, pound or gallon produced counts over large quantities and goes directly to your bottom line, so we calculate Production Costs and subsequently Cost of Goods Sold with the highest accuracy available in any manufacturing software system in the market.
  • Inventory Integration
    • Our Manufacturing module is seamlessly integrated with our Inventory module
    • Raw materials and components are deducted from inventory, including items wasted or broken and other inefficiencies
    • As a result, your inventory of raw materials and WIP will be very accurate
    • Also as a result, your inventory of Finished Products will be valued very accurately, and the costs will include all the cost components, whether expected, like raw materials or regular labor, or unexpected, like labor overtime or machine breakage times.
  • Batch Tracking and Inventory by Batch
    • Keep accurate tracking of batches and inventory by batch
    • Batch information includes expiration date
    • Produce lists of shipments by batch of raw materials or lists of raw materials batch receptions by batch of finished products, to properly handle recalls and full compliance with government regulations
    • Track your batches from cradle to grave, from the Warehouse Receipt with which they are received from the Vendor to the Packing list with which they are shipped to the customer, going through multiple (unlimited) manufacturing steps.
  • Manufacturing Dashboard
    • The Manufacturing Dashboard will provide automatic production plans based on your real sales, your pending shipments, your forecast of sales, your existing inventory and your lead times.
    • WIP production will be automatically incorporated into your plans
    • From your sales and forecasts you will be able to produce a manufacturing plan with one click using the Manufacturing Dashboard.
    • The Manufacturing Dashboard will expand requirements all the way down your chain of formulas, from your Finished Goods to your raw materials and basic components.
    • The Manufacturing Dashboard will also automatically produce a Purchasing Plan and automatically generate Purchase Orders of the raw materials and basic components that will be needed, analyzing their lead times and allowing them to arrive “just in time” for production, to maximize the efficiency of your inventory investment.
  • Shop Floor Scheduler
    • Our Shop Floor Scheduler will apply the Manufacturing Plan to the Shop Floor Resources to automatically schedule production
    • Our Scheduler will assign factory resources, adjusting the Manufacturing Plan accordingly, to maximize your plant throughput.
    • Automatic scheduling solutions are generated with one click, and can then be adjusted manually if needed for emergency situations.
  • Work Orders
    • Work Orders can be Edited or Deleted as needed by your Manufacturing Manager users
    • Components can be added and/or changed
    • Component quantities can be changed
    • Your Manufacturing Manager users are allowed to add components that are not included in your basic formulas or bills of materials, to compensate for special situations that demand flexibility to save a batch or lot.
    • The user interface is extremely powerful, yet extremely simple and intuitive, and some features can be restricted for some users, to provide maximum consistency of the information stored.
    • Automatic conversion of units, even across different dimensions, with attributes like density or specific volume of the items
