Purchasing & Materials Management
In the purchasing
program you can handle the complete purchasing management for your company clearly and efficiently.
All the information which the purchaser needs about suppliers and purchase articles together with the storage, usage and price units, as well as various parameters for controlling the purchasing and technical specifications is stored in the master data. By means of a detailed price list function, price conditions and delivery terms are described on the basis of agreed quantity scales so that orders based on order requests can be handled quickly and simply. Material requirements for bills of materials are generated from scheduled orders or can be entered manually. This takes into account the available stocks and minimum stock level requirements, batch order sizes, restocking times and the orders which have already been initiated. The requirements are automatically created according to each order or as an accumulated weekly amount. The purchasing department is provided with an overview of the requirements at an early stage within the prescribed preview period so they can optimise order quantities from a cost and liquidity point of view.
The materials management
package is an efficient warehouse management solution for all your products and preproducts, purchasing and stock materials including load carriers, containers, pallets etc. and includes different stock accounts. It covers receipt and issue postings derived from feedback messages sent from production as well as inventory and stock evaluations. These can be entered retrogressively in table format together with the production messages, with feedback on the evaluation of semi-finished and finished stocks and stock item management.
Stock item management is a function which helps to manage articles in the warehouse using identity and batch numbers. For each warehouse receipt message, stock is built up and issued items are entered with reference to the warehouse receipts. This function is for both purchased and stock articles as well as for any parts and pre-products you have produced yourself.
