Balance Supply and Demand with Material Requirements Planning

Keep the material flowing with intelligent resource planning. The goal is to plan material requirements precisely to avoid bottlenecks, idle time, and costly expediting tasks in material staging and production.

At the same time, the stock of finished goods and raw materials must be balanced, needs-based and cost-optimized. Having MRP systems that are scalable based on fluctuating demand patterns requires transparency into MRP operations at all times.

ifm's business solution for procurement supports day to day sales & operations planning in SAP with robust features that enable real time visibility, role-based insights, and proactive alerts to guide priority and focus.

Users can review all relevant MRP information to better understand how and when materials will be needed, or used, and subsequently develop improved MRP strategies.

Our software is suitable for a broad range of industries including automotive, pharmaceutical, high tech, and food and beverage. Instantly understand material requirements and make better decisions to balance supply and demand.
