Starting from the orders, a bill of material breakdown is created from which the required component quantities can be derived.
The supplier risk management tool adds a useful transparency feature to our advanced planning software (APS) ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench, enabling an overall improved planning reliability for customers. Thus, planning and countermeasures can be initiated immediately based on the information provided by the software.
