From Zlatko Matic:
ExpressMRP is a MRP (Material Requirements Planning) software for planing material demands for production.
It is simple and intuitive, yet powerful tool for ad-hoc MRP calculations often needed in process industries.
With it's user-friendly and highly interactive interface, it provides tools for fast simulations of different production cases and timely procuring required materials.
Main features of the ExpressMRP software are:
-Powerfull interface for data improt from various external business systems and spreadsheets
-Simple and fast ad-hoc, independent analysis of material availabilites and shortages for a single product
-Flexible and powerful MRP calculation of individual and total material reqirements, availabilities and shortages for list of production orders
-Result of MRP calculation is presented in information-rich datagrids in master/detail relationships. Data is presented in both products/components and components/products order. Both individual and summary information is shown.
-Materials usage list
-Production orders and procurement list consolidation
-Automatic production orders exploding with dependent demands for semi-finished products and sub-parts, any level deep
-Applying quantity constraints on production quantities and purchasing list (discrete/non-discrete, minimumm, maximum, standard multiple quantity)
-Summary and detailed printable reports
-Exporting to spreadsheets
-Powerful interface for filtering datasets
-Easy searching of specific data in a dataset
-sorting of datasets by any column
-customization of the user-interface, by section and data-grid splitters and saving session properties
-Visual signaling of shortages
-Multiplatform design (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, MAcOSX)
-Easy installation, non-dependent on any external libraries or database servers
-Saving to and loading from persistent backups
-Fast, mostly in-memory processing and calculation.
Many improvements and new features: exploding MRP with automatically created dependent production orders for subparts and semi-finished products, applying quantity constraints on production and procurement quantities, purchase list, consolidation of production and purchase orders, backups.
