Where do we fit into your business
MRP and ERP systems are not designed to plan automotive mould shops or paint plants. They can not handle complex and
fast moving constraints like labour, setter and packaging availability, scrap and downtime or non-process scrap
and quality concerns. They are not sophisticated enough to consider track layout, primer change constraints, minimum
colour run lengths or the many other factors that affect your paint plan.
Our systems take over where an MRP
or ERP system ends. An integrated planning and data capture system means that you can have effective planning and accurate
performance reporting with the minimum of effort.
The systems pull all available demand and stock information
together and show where the plan will lead to shortages. The mould system shows where you will have too few men to run the
planned jobs, where tool changes will conflict and when stillages will be needed. We do not attempt to automate planning
decisions. We aim to make planning a much easier process by providing clarity.
