Inventory Management in an APS-System

Asprova allows for precise inventory stock management by simultaneous observation of all criteria and data that is relevant for planning.

  • The Integrated Master Data Table combines BOM and process routings. All required materials of every production step are included therein.
  • Stock levels of all materials are synchronized with the ERP system.
  • Concurrent inventory stock levels are considered for production at all times.
  • Additionally, purchase plan and material reception dates are taken into account.
  • Material planning is completely synchronous to the (finite-capacity) planning process.
  • On the basis of planning with finite resource capacities which is synchronized with dynamic changes in inventory stocks, Asprova is able to produce highly accurate material requirement plans for semi-finished products and finished goods.
  • Asprova generates item codes for semi-finished products with the help of which entire order nets, as well as relevant manufacturing processes, can be synchronized.
  • For every semi-finished product code, an optimal resource and optimal production start- and end times are selected. Asprova looks to uphold process synchronization by scheduling resources (and orders) in optimal sequence.
  • Superfluous product waiting times are furthermore minimized.
