- Material requirements can be issued automatically from MRP (Material Requirement Planning): This function will automatically calculates amount and day that needs to place an order for production depending on minimum in stock and ensures the material is available for production on time. This function helps in cost reduction for the Corporation in terms of reduction in carrying cost of inventory and also ensures that the material availability does not hinder the production process. This is a high-powered function of SAP in comparison with other ERP systems because the performance is very fast and improved for textile and garment industry (calculated by size and colour of every sales order).
- Manually create purchase requisition by departments.
