Production Planning Process

The production planning transaction will adopt the planning values from your production forecast. In addition, you can change the forecast values before automatically creating the production order.

Material Planning

Material requirements planning (MRP) is a process by which a system calculates the materials and components requirements to manufacture a particular product

It consists of the following essential steps:

1. Bill of Material, which will encompass the primary raw materials for the product

2. Recipe for a product will cover the utility and other requirements for the production process

3. Production order material and planned quantity as a starting point for the material planning

4. Stock item or a non-stock item based on the company policy and the delivery timeline of the product

5. Create a reservation or a purchase requisition for the requirements quantity.

OneBusiness Production planning will perform all of the above tasks automatically with minimal input from the user.



Production Order

ERP production planning-Production Order

A production order is a cost object/document that records the manufacturing quantity for a product, the requirements date, resource/capacity requirements for the production and delivery details of the product.
OneBusiness ERP production planning can create automatic production orders with the reservation of materials (stock items), purchase requisitions and automatic resource assignment. For mechanical resource assignment, maintenance of Work center and resources are essential prerequisite.

The production order confirmation screen will propose the consumption quantity based on the recipe record. In addition, users can enter the actual meter readings for consumption.
The system will calculate the production order cost. Users can enter a timesheet for a production order and post it as an actual cost. It is an optional step if the organisation wants to calculate the actual cost of the production order instead of conventional cost allocation methods.

After the production order confirmation, users can do goods receipt to the inventory of the product. This action will result in accounting entries.


ERP production planning-Resource Planning:

We can assign resources to a production order automatically. We will use the Work Center and its resource assignment for this purpose.
Users can continually readjust the automatic assignment based on the business scenario. This action will result in Production orders appearing in the individual employee’s Time sheets.
Users can enter the actual hours worked on a production order to precisely calculate the resource costs.
The resource costs will appear in the production order confirmation screen. OneBusiness Production planning has a facility to deactivate the resource planning for a production order completely.

Even though it is an optional step there are numerous advantages in doing this transaction. It gives an opportunity to compare the plan and actual costs of a production order. OneBusiness ERP production planning is an easy tool for cost planning. The learning of the deviations during the production order processing will improve the operational efficiency.

Material Reservation

The production planning process will create reservations if the raw material is in stock. Else, it will create a purchase requisition. Therefore, it is always good to keep the raw material in stock for a definite period.
