Web-Integrated manages production schedules with parameters and netting inventory against what is going to be used. These are not easy calculations and cannot be done on a spreadsheet.
The main goal is to give organizations a view into how much inventory is needed to support current demand/forecast. The schedules can display in weekly totals or monthly to yearly aggregates. Long term or short it does not matter.
As demand changes, so does the production schedule. This allows suppliers and procurement tasks to gain confidence and act quickly to changes. It also allows a view into inventory shortfalls. If item is going to go into the negative you’ll see it weeks before it actually happens and the system calculated suggestion will be constantly looking for inventory.
Never create too much. Once netted demand is set the system will never ask for more inventory than what is already set for safety Stock.
