Traditional scheduling and planning systems (MRP) often produce unmanageable and unrealistic requirements like issuing purchase orders with past due dates. Seizing the opportunity, Infor, the developers of Syteline ERP, introduced APS or Advanced Planning And Scheduling to simplify business management, increase planning visibility, increase production capacity and lower inventory.
While production scheduling by nature is difficult with varying factors like production mix, available resources, and time, APS tackles complex demands often from contending priorities.
Syteline’s Advanced Planning Scheduling coupled with Sourceday’s supplier portal helps companies:
1. Communicate with suppliers more effectively.
2. Organize and manage past due purchase orders.
3. Automate purchase orders in a more timely and effective manner.
4. Manage material exceptions.
