We are a manufacturing facility and are looking for input from other manufacturers on what you find works best for you, as far as being able to tell what materials we need to fulfill orders, whether it be PO’s to order Raw Material or Work Orders to build inventory in-house.
We have tried Critical Materials and MRP. Critical Materials doesn’t seem to look at the whole picture, when we enter a WO #, the system seems to only see if you have enough materials to build that one WO. When we look at MRP, we see a whole other story of what items need to be ordered or built.
Keep in mind, we also need to be able to link Parent Item WO’s with Children Item WO’s.
I look forward to seeing what my fellow community members have to say about this.
