1.New Master Production Schedule to plan future manufacturing orders
Go to- Reporting > Master Production Schedule
Master Production Schedule (MPS)
- Master production scheduling plays an important role in the balancing of demand with the supply.
- Satisfying customers according to the limits of the factory and the supplier’s base.
- MPS is used to know the number of the items that are to be produced, the planned inventories of raw materials, finished products, and parts etc.
An effective MPS ultimately offers:
- Give production, planning, purchasing, and management the information to plan and control manufacturing
- Tie overall business planning and forecasting to detail operations
- Enable marketing to make legitimate delivery commitments to warehouses and customers
- Increase the efficiency and accuracy of a company's manufacturing - Rough cut capacity planning
2.PLM (product lifecycle)
- The versioning of nomenclatures and routines s now supported and orchestrated by the new “Product Lifecycle Management” (PLM) module
- Here you can define the types of changes that can be applied, such as the replacement of a component or the changing a process.
-The related approval workflow can be also customized to see which users/departments are allowed to validate (or just comment) the change request.
-When the change request Engineering Change Order (ECO) is enabled, a new version of the nomenclature and/or routing can be created and applied immediately, or from a specific date.

- Corrective maintenance is maintenance which is carried out after failure detection and
- Aimed at restoring an asset to a condition in which it can perform its intended function.
- Maintenance, including tests, measurements, adjustments, and parts replacement, performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring.
