MRP (Material Requirements Planning)

UnityF8 MRP (Material Requirements Planning) calculates production and purchasing instructions from a comprehensive array of system information. UnityF8 completely eliminates complex in-house spreadsheets and other ‘individual’ data stores that often contain erroneous data.

Purchasing - raw materials and supplier management

You can then harness the power of the MRP process to consolidate demand, determine economic order quantities and drive price negotiations:

  • Review and confirm system generated orders
  • Purchase authorisation hierarchy
  • Purchase vs stocking unit of measure
  • Automated price breaks and discount structures
  • Purchase price variance reporting
  • Supplier performance monitoring.

Production process management and control

Central to the production process, UnityF8 supply chain software regulates make-to-order and make-to-stock production with comprehensive recipes and process operations:

  • Production scheduling – drag-and-drop adjustments
  • ‘What-If’ scheduling enquiry
  • Review and confirm system generated instructions
  • Co-products, by-products and re-work
  • Alternative ingredients
  • Multiple recipe versions
  • Actual labour recording.

These functions are complemented by UnityF8 production analysis tools to quickly identify problem areas such as:

  • Material variance
  • Cost variance
  • Labour variance
  • Yield and wastage variance.
