apintra® Supply Chain Management
Every modern supply chain management system has to deal with increased requirements and steadily increasing cost pressure. According to the “7 Rs of logistics,”
- the right amount of the right product
- has to be delivered to the right customer
- at the right time
- in the right quality,
- at the right location,
- and at the right price.
The supply chain management module lets you optimize the entirety of your warehouse management and integrate higher-level modules such as production and/or merchandise management.
Availability: This module works together with the apintra production module to ensure that all manufacturing areas are sufficiently supplied with direct goods such as raw, auxiliary, and operating materials as well as supplier parts and semi-finished products. It also ensures the supply of indirect goods such as office supplies, spare parts, and services.
Cost savings: The material management module helps uncover potential savings and allows you to exploit them directly. For example, you can weigh the costs for providing goods (readiness for delivery or level of service) and the costs for a required but unavailable quantity (shortage costs) and thereby optimize costs.
Reduce: Get a precise overview of excess inventory or slow-moving items and reduce the capital tied up in inventory deliberately reducing these inventories.
