An ERP is essential for a manufacturing business to thrive nowadays – however, they aren’t the answer to all manufacturing problems. The use of an Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software as an ERP extension increases an ERPs capability to improve manufacturing processes within the supply chain.
A production planning solution will help you squeeze every last ounce of productivity from your manufacturing resources. Production scheduling software will factor in capacity, labour, materials, and any other considerations to ensure you make the best possible decisions. The outcome is shorter production times and no missed delivery targets.
