pc/MRP Is Easy to Implement
How to import your data into pc/MRP
When switching to pc/MRP, users can easily import their existing data from another system. pc/MRP is able to import addresses, parts, BOMs, vendor price qty breaks, sales orders, etc. from ASCII, CSV, dBASEIII, XML or XLS files.
View the video for an example of importing Bill of Materials data. For detailed information on importing into other database tables, see our tutorials in MRP101.
pc/MRP's Inspection Module allows quality control inspectors to record and save their inspection records for parts and assemblies that require an inspection.
Users can specify the events when an inspection must be performed (part received, manufactured, invoiced and/or shipped) and specify what criteria will be used to inspect it. Link the certificate of compliance (.PDF) to the record.
25 user definable work areas
Track the location of sales/work orders on the manufacturing floor.
Enter WS Value Percentages. Print reports.
Issuing parts to manufacturing for a sales/work order automatically creates a routing record. Users can designate a work area as "finished goods". Moving products into this area can be used instead of a stockroom transaction receiving back from the manufacturing floor.
