Materials Management and Demand Planning

In Hi-Tech Industries, conditions in materials management and demand planning vary rapidly. New requirements need to be determined constantly; order processes and production planning have to be updated. Manufacturing operations need to respond quickly and without too much expense. The higher the product and BOM complexity, the more important a comprehensive, automatic MRP planning process becomes.

Trident’s Hi-Tech Solution provides powerful MRP planning configurations, including ordering and order data, shopping and sales planning and stochastic processes.
