Yonyou strives to provide the best comprehensive solutions and value-added services to small-and-medium to large manufacturers covering different types of manufacturing processes such as process manufacturing, discrete manufacturing and mixed mode manufacturing. We have specific solutions to 19 categories and 100 sub-categories of industries covering over 1000 best practice models for the full process management of manufacturers from financial control, operation management to production management.
Our manufacturing management solution has perfectly solved many problems in the management of multi-plant manufacturing collaboration. It enables the parent plant to play strategic role of planning, control and adjustment, and the subsidiary plants to implement and execute. Multi-plant MRP is processed respectively and implemented together. The logistics and sales DRP and MRP of every plant are considered on the whole., moreover, many other problems have been addressed in terms of the changing production environment caused by planning alteration of production centre, plan adjustment of the production centre caused by individual manufacturing schedule, the procedure collaboration between different plants, the random distribution of manufacturing capacity between multiple plants and the preparation of surplus materials for the procedure collaboration between multiple plants.
In order to effectively take advantage of the resources, multiple plants have to ensure that resources are fully shared between them under the circumstances of manufacturing collaboration, which will lead to the optimization of production.
Multi-plant Planning Collaboration
The parent plant makes the overall manufacturing plan which is automatically divided into plans for subsidiary plants to implement. The alteration of the overall plan will synchronize with the alteration of subsidiary plans in a timely manner.
Multi-plant Material Supply Collaboration
The material supply collaboration in accordance with BOM: it is suitable for each plant to coordinate the production on the basis of the scheduled plans.
The material supply collaboration is decided by the planner: according to the production capacity balance between different enterprises and plants with the same processing capacity, the planner will outsource the whole processing procedure to different plants.
Multi-plant Collaboration of Production Procedures
The production procedure collaboration in accordance with routing enables plants with no processing capacity to finish the special procedure processing. Additionally, the production procedure collaboration decided by planners or workshops enables plants with inadequate production capacity to distribute the production capacity.
The MRP of multi-plant production collaboration enables multiple plants to coordinate production in terms of the number of end products and parts as well as the specific date of starting and ending production.
The MRP of multi-location operation and multi-level material supply enables each plant to independently make plans in order, organize production and ensure supply with the distributed materials.
