Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


In Exact for Manufacturing we find a robust planning for material requirements of shop orders. When materials have a long lead time we would like to make our purchases in advance of shop order generation, for example on the basis of sales forecasts.
