The system was developed and implemented by specialists of ADP department. The main purpose of planning is to provide material availability, that is, timely stocking up or production of required quantity to cover internal needs. This process includes checkup of warehouse stock with automatic purchase order issuing. The system checks up:
- if material needs can be covered for definite period of time;
- if full coverage of needs is not possible in time, and at what time it becomes possible.
Thus, the system is aimed at providing the optimal balance between supply, minimized costs and investments into long-term assets. Planning need for materials allows to purchase material volume required at definite moment of utilization.
