Material planning

For reliable material provision

Economical production processes through professional material planning

Highly professional material planning is the key to optimum production processes and efficiency. With the help of the material planning module integrated in FactWork, the requirements for purchasing, production and external production are identified and all material-related actions are initiated. As such, you can be confident that the required material will be procured at the right time.

Uniform database for design engineers and material planners

Design engineers and material planners work with a common database: With the materials and construction groups from the FactWork article master, the design engineer generates the parts lists, on the basis of which the material planner identifies the material requirements.

Assured material replenishment

Parts lists are exploded to an arbitrary hierarchy depth, available inventories are reserved in the warehouse, and order, production and external production proposals are generated. The determination of lead time and order date takes place on the basis of the re-procurement time.

Alerts with minimum stock levels

FactWork monitors the availability of important articles and informs material planners of any drop below minimum stock levels. Furthermore, proposals are also provided for the re-procurement of the required materials.

Real time overview of inventory development

The material management list offers a real time overview of inventory development on the basis of existing purchase orders and jobs. The integrated material availability check determines which open orders can be produced or supplied with the available material.
