The Genzlinger Supply Chain Management (SCM) system is a comprehensive, easy-to-use series of applications that provide an extremely fast distribution of data from the customer’s EDI release, through master scheduling, through material and capacity planning, through purchasing, to the supplier’s EDI release.

It is this rapid SCM planning cycle that allows the small to medium sized repetitive manufacturer with continuous or lot sized manufacturing and purchasing requirements to compete successfully in a just-in-time world.

Provides production schedules, fine-cut capacity plans, daily work orders and pegging reports which are updated by current inventory transaction each time they are generated.

Allows separate shop calendars for each work center.

Purchasing (POP):

Generates supplier releases directly from the MRP schedule.

Provides a unique planning screen that compares last weeks release to the new MRP recommendation and allows for easy adjustment on an exception basis.

Inputs receivers, from bar code scanning, that update inventory and accrue costs.

Includes a complete inspection and reject disposition system.

Includes a complete supplier performance system.

Supplier EDI:

Sends supplier releases in several formats, using EDI or auto-faxing for just-in-time processing.

Receives advanced shipment notices for updating in-transit inventory and creating preliminary receiving documents.
