Material Requirements Planning (MRP) For Specialised Engineering Manufacturing
Access FactoryMaster, our MRP software, is used by specialised engineering manufacturing companies to improve cashflow and transform capacity, visibility and traceability.
- Designed to meet the needs of ambitious make-to-order, make-to-stock, and mixed mode manufacturing companies.
- Use the Control Desk feature for rapid creations of suggested purchase and works orders, cancel and reschedule orders directly from your MRP.
- Improved visibility gives you control over your inventory, stock, purchase orders and works orders.
Production Planning Software For Specialised Engineering Manufacturing
Access Orchestrate, our Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software, helps specialised engineering manufacturing companies plan complex production schedules with ease. Generate live plans visible across your team to help identify bottlenecks before they happen and ensure maximum capacity.
- Use the Drag and Drop Gantt Chart to easily allocate machines and resources .
- Plan around scheduled maintenance to ensure minimum downtime and best use of resources.
- Unlock capacity by ‘seeing’ production issues such as bottlenecks more clearly.
- 'What-if' analysis helps planners run scenarios and build accurate models.
- Evaluate multiple production plan scenarios so you and your team can decide on the plan of best fit.
- Provide lead times and delivery dates to customers that are backed by data
Quality Control & Traceability For Specialised Engineering Manufacturing
Our MRP system is built to help specialised and precision engineering manufacturers accurately trace every individual element of a product and show an audit trail at every stage. Access FactoryMaster MRP helps engineering contractors and machine shops maintain excellent quality control.
- Easily identify a non-conforming part, which batch it came from, when it was produced, which product it’s been used in and where it is now.
- Generate reports to support evidence-based decision making for continuous improvement.
- Control non-conformity in materials and components to eliminate defects in the manufacturing process.
- Produce FAIRs (First Article Inspection Reports), demonstrating complete compliance throughout.
- Quarantine faulty or damaged parts and keep audit trails so items can be scrapped or reworked.
- ‘Quality Tree’ feature helps you keep all your certificates of conformity and associated quality documents in one place, against the finished batch.
