Description

Production planning and control (or PPC) is defined as a work process which seeks to allocate human resources, raw materials, and equipment/machines in a way that optimizes efficiency. In layman’s terms, PPC helps manufacturers work smarter in allocating internal resources of people, materials, and machines in order to meet the demands of customers.

With ever-shorter lead times and increasing price pressure, the challenges of make-to-order manufacturing and complex variant management are loud and clear. To compete, mid-sized companies must optimize their production processes. That's why ERP production planning and control (PPC) is at the heart of the abas ERP system for modern production companies. It enables efficiency, coordination, and the leveraging of production-related data to drive improvement.

Efficiency through automation

With abas ERP, your entire order management system is on the screen. With one click, you can convert automatically-generated production proposals into work orders and, by approving them, trigger job tickets, route cards, picking lists and an availability check. The capacity plan provides a complete overview of machine utilization, bottlenecks and backlogs, and, when work steps are shifted, immediately takes into account the impact on material requirements planning or MRP. Conflicts are identified at an early stage and you can be proactive instead of reactive.
