WinMAGI’s MPS converts the sales forecast into a balanced material and capacity plan for MRP.
Three levels of forecasting are supported. Simple 12 month averaging, specific monthly forecast and WinMAGI’s exclusive forecast from annual sales. With this extraordinarily powerful tool, WinMAGI uses historical records or your product expertise to develop the forecast. Seasonality can be introduced at both the product or product class levels for total flexibility in the modeling process.
A review process displays sales projections by end item and product class monthly, quarterly, and annually. Work center capacity can be reviewed before releasing the forecast to MRP.
