‘Projected Stock’ quantity is added to materials overview in the shop order of Exact Online for Manufacturing

Written by Auke Hylarides on . Posted in Exact Online

In the Shop Order, Exact Online for Manufacturing checks if the materials, needed for the order, are available. If the materials are not available Exact gives a clear warning.

The material requirement are matched against the available stock (‘in stock’). However when other shop orders request the same material or when the same material was listed twice in the shop order, than this may lead to wrong conclusion, that you have enough stock to start production.

In the new situation the material requirement is also matched against the ‘projected stock’. As a result you get better insight in the available stock of the materials needed to manufacture the product.

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

If the MRP calculation shows a gross requirement of 475 pieces it may be more efficient to produce 500 pieces. If the batch size is 200 liter, and the gross requirement is 450 liter, the advice may be to produce 600 liter (3 batches). We just added (February 2019) functionality ‘to round up to batch quantity’.
