Key Features and Functions
Strict management of raw material lead times is vitally important in controlling overall procurement costs and attaining customer service level targets. SYSPRO enables you to monitor quoted purchasing lead times against actual supplier delivery performance and to flag reliable suppliers of specific raw materials as certified in the system, as well as to track blanket purchase order contracts.
Component-to-operation linking and component offsets facilitate the implementation of JIT and LEAN purchasing principles for raw materials. In addition, inventory order point indicators, such as reorder point, minimum/maximum levels and safety stock provide the tools to help you mitigate problems associated with unreliable supply of long-lead time items.
