Many ERP / MRP system struggle to handle the complexities of the aerospace supply chain, such as: part aliases & alternatives, kitting, import and analysis of MRP data and you end up using spreadsheets and / or Access databases to work around these, and other shortcomings. Also, it can often be difficult to get the data out of the system to get the reports you need and when you want them.
If you're experiencing any of these issues, then I can help you!
I am a specialist in the development of modern ERP and reporting software for aerospace MRO's and parts suppliers. I help my clients improve their operational efficiency, often by as much as 60%, with bespoke software that addresses their specific business needs.
The purchasing and planning software Chris developed for us has replaced the need for 8 people and has prevented numerous stock outs.
Some of the solutions I have delivered to previous clients include:
Import customer MRP forecasts and project a rolling stock position over the next 12, 24 or 36 months, taking into account current stock positions, supplier lead times, sales and purchase orders. Parts that have insufficient stock to meet demand are highlighted so that they can be actioned and prevent a stock out.
Development of reports such as sales history by customer / supplier, aged sales analysis, open sales / purchase orders, last buy price, part usages. All reports are available in your web browser and can be scheduled to run on demand or at regular intervals.
Replace parts of the legacy system with a modern web based interface allowing quick, easy and accurate quote and order entry. Data can be exported to the legacy system, keeping it up to date and ensuring that processes further down the line are not affected.
Import and export of data from/to realtional databases (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server, Postgres), MS Access, Excel spreadsheets, CSV files, and DBF files. In particular, I have many years experience importing and exporting data to & from CAFAM. Read more.
