MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS

 

MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS REPORT

Listing that shows the material quantities that need to be ordered and when in order to manufacture the finished goods on the capacity requirements report.  The material requirements are automatically generated when the Net Requirements/CRP update is run.  These requirements can be imported into Vendor Releases and emailed or faxed directly to your vendors.  You also can easily create a listing of items that you would like quotes on and send this list to vendors also.

 

IMPORT VENDOR RELEASES

Updates existing or creates new vendor releases from the current material requirements.  Vendor releases will be created for any material that has a blanket purchase order.  Each quantity and due date will be added to the vendor release that can easily be faxed or emailed to each vendor.

 

MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS INQUIRY

Three separate inquiry screens are available that allow you to view the current material requirements.  One option allows the users to view requirements for a particular raw material.  Another screen allows the user to view requirements for all material at the same time.  The third screen allows the user to enter a finished good part#, and the current requirements for all of the items on the bill-of-material display.  A request for quote listing can be generated directly from the screen simply by checking those items that you would like a quote on.  The listing is then opened in Word and can be directly emailed to multiple vendors at that time.
