Advanced inventory and capacity checks
Order enquiries can be satisfied from a combination of inventory and machine capacity. Whether it is a simple production process or there are multi-stage routes, ATP/CTP will try to “squeeze” your new enquiry to deliver it on time. By using dynamic time buckets, it guarantees you are not affecting what you have already promised. Aspects like machine level constraints, transport times, quotas, are all enforced by ATP/CTP, ensuring that the proposed sourcing of the enquiries are really doable.
ATP/CTP understands that the existing stock items might need to go through a conversion process (rewinding, sheeting, lamination, coating, metalisation, etc.) and checks the capacity on the converting machines.
