Aptean Production Planning for Food and Beverage


Enhance your production planning process with balanced supply and demand.

Make-to-order food manufacturers often use pre-defined batch sizes in their production process. The problem is, this usually leads to surplus inventory; or even worse, wasted resources. Supply and demand have to be effectively balanced if there’s any chance of solving this dilemma. Beyond this, you also need to stay on top of any deadlines that could further complicate things.

The reality is simple—you need the best planning tools to fulfill production orders with the right quantities, on-time, every time.

Achieve Balance with Accurate Planning

Production Planning for Aptean Food and Beverage ERP provides your production planners with the information they need to balance supply and demand for make-to-order items. All existing sales order lines are presented alongside available inventory, with factors such as item reservations and planned production also taken into account. When existing availability does not meet demand, a production order can be easily generated to satisfy any requirements. Intuitive filter options make it easy to quickly identify which items require production activity.

Once an item’s supply and demand are balanced within the application, changes to related sales or production orders inform users if they’re upsetting the balance, helping prevent errant changes that disrupt a pristine production plan.
