Advanced Inventory Planner

Get instant visibility to the master warehouse, to field stock, and everything in between

VALOGIX® SAP Business One Inventory Planner is a next generation forecasting and planning tool that will forever change the way you plan your inventory.

VALOGIX® Planner is tightly integrated to SAP Business One and manages an unlimited number of items and locations. Users have instant visibility to the Master warehouse, to field stock, and everything in between. The proprietary planning engine efficiently plans for each item\location combination based on its unique characteristics. For example, a regional warehouse replenishes lower level and field locations; therefore, it is both a supplier and warehouse location. This allows Valogix to handle different lead times, costs, and other variables for more precise planning with SAP® Business One.

VALOGIX® Planner Enhances MRP Process in SAP Business One

The basic purpose of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) is determining how much of which products needs to be either manufactured or purchased based on it being a comnent or ingredient of another item. MRP also determines when the product is required. Every item can have either Independent Demand or Dependent Demand.

Independent Demand is based on an item being an end product of a manufacturing facility. Independent Demand would include end products that are sold directly to customers or distributors, spare parts that are sold to repair shops or customers, supplies that are sold directly, etc.

Dependent Demand is based on an item being used, consumed, absorbed, destroyed, etc. in the manufacturing process of making other items. This might include raw materials, purchased parts, sub assemblies, or complex parts that are also themselves manufactured or assembled. Some dependent demand may be the result of waste or scrap from the manufacturing process.

An MRP system is intended to simultaneously meet three objectives:

  • Ensure materials and products are available for production and delivery to customers
  • Maintain the lowest possible level of inventory
  • Plan manufacturing activities, delivery schedules and purchasing activities”

Valogix enhances the Assembly Planning capability in Business One. Valogix uses a Bill of Material hierarchy sourced and establishes the ‘level’ of a component i.e. parent level (Level 1) sub assembly level (s) (Level 2) Raw Material Level (s) (Level 3). It can accommodate a component having different levels in different Bills. Inventory Flow dynamically tracks the inventory status changes. Valogix manages an unlimited number of locations improving the SAP Business One process.

 

Valogix manages:

  • Make-to-Order (MTO)
  • Make-to-Stock (MTS)
  • Forward Orders
  • Complex BOMs
