TPiCS – Flexible Manufacturing Resource Planning (f-MRP)
TPiCS is a Flexible Manufacturing Resource Planning (f-MRP) solution that is a ‘Must Have” for manufacturers, especially if you’re having to deal with frequent change requests to manufacturing orders (i.e. sudden changes from customers on order quantities, both increases and decreases).
In addition, TPiCS allows manufacturers to fulfill orders completely and by the required deadline. In particular it offers robust functionality to manage:
Key Features of TPiCS:
- Flexible MRP Management
Offering flexibility to the manufacturing process is one of the core strengths of TPiCS. With TPiCS manufacturers can stabilize the production process, while making quick adjustments to changing requirements, so that both the repeatability and profitability can be maximized.
- Robust Make-To-Order Management
For manufacturers that produce product based on each order TPiCS offers comprehensive functionality for efficient management of the entire process from the receipt of the order, through the design phase, to the completion of the production cycle.
- Serial Number Management
Manage production and track both the performance and the cost for each serialized item. It is possible to set the number from one to four depending on the degree of collaboration with f-MRP.
- Efficiency and Completion Management
TPiCS allows you to control buffers for the manufacturing process to include overage percentages as well as buffers for the manufacturing production schedule (i.e. timeframe for completion of a production run) to insure that all production runs are completed on time and to a 100% fulfillment rate.
