MachSix is a Vitamin For Your ERP System

Monday, July 18th, 2011 : 0 Comments

Vitamins supplement your body with essential elements that it wouldn’t get naturally. Sure, you can survive without your daily vitamins- but if you want to feel your best, look your best, and have a long, healthy life, it’s almost universally accepted that supplements are of great value.

Turning to the world of manufacturing, if you think of your manufacturing plant as your body, and your ERP system the diet that fuels your body, there are certain critical elements missing from your diet.  To name a few:

  • The ability to optimize your lot, batch, or campaign sizes for input into an MRP or an Advanced Planning and Scheduling tool
  • The ability to optimize your reorder points for input into an MRP or an Advanced Planning and Scheduling tool
  • If you are looking to use Pull replenishment, easily configurable rules and visual cues
  • Easy to access and use metrics that promote Flow-based or Lean behaviors
