Reckoner Planning

               We define your business


Planning has always been the biggest concern in any organization. The better the planning is, the more successful the organization is in reducing the inventories, maximize the throughput, proper utilization of production unit, thereby reducing the manufacturing costs. Any reduction in cost helps in cutting down the price leading to increased competitiveness of the organization.
Planning job is most difficult but an important one in the organization. In this process, the system tries to achieve a balance between optimizing the service level on the one hand, but at the same time, minimizing costs and capital lockup on the other hand.

Reckoner Planning has flexibility to support variety of manufacturing strategies, such as Make to order, Make to Stock and Assemble to order. Manufacturing environment could be process based and discrete for producing finished goods.

In case of Process manufacturing Production Plan is an essential document and BOM and Routing needs to be defined once, as process remains same for all Production plans. But in case of Discrete production entire Planning to execution cycle holds an importance.

Reckoner Planning enables short term forecast and is derived from the long-term forecasts. It enables planning for contingency through tools like "What if analysis?"
  Reckoner planning takes into consideration the entire planning cycle of the organization begins from Sales forecast to Cash flow planning.

In the industries having established production lines, Sales forecast forms the basis for the sales plan for the period. SOP provides a time -phased commitment of resources and form the basis for master production scheduling which creates a schedule for a production of an item. Capacity leveling balances the master schedule according to plant capacity and periodically production activities are planned. Then material Requirement planning forms the basis for purchase of materials.

Cash flow planning takes into account Planned production Order, Planned Purchase Order and Planned Sales, which forms the basis for planned cash flow.
  Reckoner Planning provides necessary link between company's plan and the operations of each department. It provides a means for orchestrating all departments, as it communicates the plans both horizontally and vertically. It yields a realistic plan.

Reckoner Sales and Operation plan is based on sales Forecasting and sets a target for Reckoner Sales.

Reckoner Planning also communicates with Reckoner manufacturing as, production order is generated based on production planning.

You can create Production Plan for Semi -Finished and finished products.

System automatically calculates requirements for semi-finished products and raw materials based on BOM.
