Production Planning (P/P) is the comprehensive planning module of AutoSimply's manufacturing suite for Accpac. It makes full use of the manufacturing and BOM information in AutoSimply's Manufacturing Order (M/F), sales information as contained in Accpac O/E, stock data within Accpac I/C as well as the purchase information in Accpac P/O.

 

P/P allows users to enter sales forecasts and supports forecast consumption by actual sales orders. Used together with item planning properties such as minimum stock, minimum order and lead times, P/P can be an instrumental tool in enhancing inventory management and improving customer service level.

 

With AutoSimply's P/P module, Accpac can now truly generate a full-blown Master Production Schedule (MPS) and Material Requirements (MRP) plan!
