Main Capacities of Priority SCM Module
The Purchasing module enables the purchasing manager to receive real-time updates of the results of decisions regarding the balance of materials in inventory.
The Purchasing module is linked to the Financials, CRM, Sales, Project Management, Inventory and Production modules. This linkage allows the purchasing manager to view the sales orders and/or demand for finished goods that serve as the basis for purchase requisitions.
Priority‘s Inventory Control module provides the ability to efficiently manage all stages of the product lifecycle. The module enables users to manage inventory levels and maintain tight controls on inventory replenishment, minimizing excess stock and ensuring timely order fulfillment.
Priority‘s Purchase Planning module determines material requirements (for both raw materials used in production and purchased items sold to customers) based on sales orders, open work orders, or frequency of need. Demands for parts are determined by material requirements planning (MRP). Purchase demands for parts that are acquired on a regular basis (e.g., supplies, goods produced for stock) are calculated in accordance with fixed user-designated requirements.
Priority‘s Production Control module provides the means for handling production, from the maintenance of work orders, through the issue of materials to the floor (including issues to kits), to the reporting of finished jobs and the maintenance of plant-floor inventory (work in progress).
Priority‘s Engineering Change Orders (ECO) module enables users to track engineering changes that were made during production of a part. For each change, users can document details of the change, the date of the change, parts that have been affected, and more. Users can also link part and BOM revisions to engineering changes. The system tracks those revisions that have been affected by the change, as well as work orders that have been opened in accordance with these revisions.
The Delivery Scheduling module enables you to plan the delivery of goods to customers by assigning distribution routes and delivery dates to sales orders. You can use Priority‘s time-tested automatic scheduling algorithms, or schedule deliveries manually. The Schedule Deliveries program assigns a sales order to a delivery according to its due date, the distribution route, the default days of the week the customer routinely receives deliveries, and the company’s operating hours. You can also produce a Delivery Pick List report, which displays all sales orders scheduled for delivery, sorted by distribution route and date. This report is useful for company drivers as they distribute goods to customers.
The Quality Assurance module enables you to track the results of laboratory tests and part sampling and to manage the tracking of malfunctions (MRB). It also enables the user to extend expiration dates of lots and work orders.
The Inter-company Transactions module is meant for multi-company organizations that seek to manage their supply chain efficiently by providing them with the tools to create, settle and reconcile inter-company transactions. This module can handle communication between companies which are managed on the same server or on different ones.
