Order Scheduling with SIMMS 2014

 

simms_scheduling1

A system with master-scheduling capability takes into account all promotional plans by item. It will also add demand projections by week, subtract returns and cancellations, add in the expected receipts and plot delivery dates for purchase orders, and then calculate whether an item is running short or overstocked across channels. Because the calculations are by week, you can see where more on order is needed or the effect of delaying purchase orders on the net requirements.

Prior to SIMMS 2014, systems with this capability often required management to make a significant investment. Software companies look to develop full-fledged catalog planning, Internet, inventory management and retail functionality. SIMMS continues to develop toward these goals for a truly amalgamated and comprehensive solution.

Exception Reporting

simms_reporting

A natural outgrowth of systems with master scheduling, exception reporting helps re-buyers and inventory managers know where to take action without their having to review every item every week in detail. Retail and direct inventory systems both use exception reporting. Types of exception reports include:

  1. Management Reports (for instance, top 50/bottom 50 in sales)
  2. Product Characteristic Reports (e.g., all items in a certain fabric across departments)
  3. POs needed based on stock-out calculations, on hand and on order, and projected demand with item/vendor lead time
  4. Ranking reports for returns, cancellations, gross margin, and liquidation
  5. Forecast variance plan to actual
  6. Slow sellers and candidates for liquidation
  7. New vs. Repeat performance
  8. Imported vs. Domestic Product

Tracking Depreciation with SIMMS

simms_depreciation

Information available through the SIMMS Depreciation module gives you the power to forecast next year’s depreciation expenses through the use of SIMMS Accounting modules, which allow you to control the allocation of the depreciation for groups of assets – or individual assets – to more than one source of funding.

The tracking of depreciation makes it easier for you to rotate your stock to take full advantage of your turnover rates and to know which items bring the greatest returns. This aspect of asset management is fully integrated into SIMMS to suit your needs while simultaneously eliminating redundant data entry.

With the Depreciation Module you can:

• Allow assignment of depreciation-related fields either individually or globally within the system.

• Calculate depreciation monthly, quarterly or annually.

• Comply with both GASB (Governmental Accounting Standards Board) 34 and 35 requirements.

• Control access to depreciation data through SIMMS’ built-in User Rights Protection.

• Develop custom reports or use built-in reports to acquire the data you require.

• Employ both standard and customized depreciation methods.

• Manage FIFO By Location warehouse data is automatically updated with each adjustment.

Production Systems and SIMMS 2013

simms_manufacturing

Automation serves you best if you can be receiving, sub-building and master building at varying stages all at the same time. If one sector is ahead of another, re-commit some workers to the sector that lags the most. Versatility within the workforce as well as a comprehensive overall view of all processes by administration can help you operate at full effectiveness.

In manufacturing, the amount of time you can reduce in producing items you subsequently sell leads to peak efficiency and customer satisfaction. SIMMS Inventory Management software streamlines the assembly process in all quarters, from cutting lead time for receiving components, saving labor on sub-assemblies and ultimately trimming your in-house production’s bottom line.

The principles for all manufacturing systems are as follows:

  1. Ability to reproduce constant quality during mass productions
  2. Large manufactured components should have uniform material properties throughout all components
  3. Meeting the cost of your production requirements
  4. Meeting performance requirements (such as tolerances, strength, weight, and so forth).
