| SYSPRO MANUFACTURING
Mixed-mode manufacturers attain agility by running parallel manufacturing strategies and switching between them as required. SYSPRO provides full visual management across mixed-mode production organizations, enabling the seamless synchronization and integration of a variety of manufacturing techniques all within one fully integrated software system.
Whether manufacturing to order or to stock, using discrete or process methods; engineering to order; or building large project-based assets, SYSPRO’s outstanding flexibility ensures a comprehensive set of tools to help you plan, record, track and control your output. SYSPRO functionality enables you to keep inventory at an absolute minimum and enhances your decision-making regarding what to manufacture, with what resources, when, where, and in what sequence.
Through SYSPRO’s accommodation of a variety of manufacturing techniques, as well as its modular approach, mixed-mode manufacturers are provided with the flexibility to grow their businesses in the direction that the market demands.
Increasing manufacturing efficiency means getting the right balance between demand and supply, while optimizing capacity, improving throughput, and reducing waste and variable costs. SYSPRO provides interactive decision-support tools that give you visibility and control over all inputs and outputs.
SYSPRO’s material requirements planning functionality gives you an integrated picture of your time-phased demand and supply, enabling you to model ‘what-if’ scenarios to produce viable replenishment plans.
SYSPRO Factory Scheduling assists you in maintaining accurate and up-to-date production schedules that take account of your material plans and the complexities of your factory. This enables better co-ordination between work centers, increased productivity, reduced work-in-progress and achievement of improved customer service levels.
Material and labor tracking, as well as cost, scrap and utilization management is facilitated through SYSPRO’s Work in Progress module, which enables you to track in-process production at every stage and identify problems as they occur.
SYSPRO’s Inventory Optimization and Forecasting modules enable you to minimize forecast error and manage seasonality, thereby helping you to reduce your inventory investment, and improve order fulfilment performance. This is further enhanced by features such as Available-to-promise and various time fence indicators, which give sales and production staff a reliable view of what they can promise to customers and when.
SYSPRO’s Material Requirements Planning gives you clear visibility to the integrated effect of current and future supply and demand, thereby enabling you to make better purchasing and production decisions and reduce excess and obsolete inventories. The inclusion of sources of supply and demand is configurable and various reports and related review programs enable easy potential oversupplies and seamless execution of suggested actions. In addition, order policies by stock code at warehouse level enable you to implement lot-sizing rules for purchased and manufactured items.

In make-to-order environments, where a full material requirements planning run may not be required, features such as Advanced Trial Kitting provide full visibility to replenishment requirements for multi or single-level jobs. The purchase order to job link enables purchased or subcontracted materials to be receipted directly into specific jobs.
Standard reports such as the Inventory Exception and the MRP Potential Oversupplies report help you identify excess inventories and possible problems with your lot-sizing techniques.
To identify and reduce waste and inefficiencies in the production process, you need real-time access to accurate material and labor flow data. SYSPRO enables you to easily query the status of your work-in-progress in terms of costs, material and scrap quantities, labor hours and manufactured quantities. In addition, optional lot traceability and serial tracking functionality enables you to identify the jobs to which traceable raw materials have been issued.
In SYSPRO, the material and labor allocations are created manually for a non-standard job, or automatically for a job created from a bill of material or estimate. In all cases, you can specify whether the materials are required a certain number of days before the job finish date, or at the start of a specific operation. This provides complete visibility to the material and labor that is required for any particular job, and when it is required in the production process. Also, once a job is in progress, you can easily pinpoint where the job is currently located in the routing, as well as what material has been issued so far, and the job’s overall progress.
