When renewing an ERP system, is it better to implement Asprova before or after the renewal?
A benefit of renewing the ERP/production management system first is that you can avoid developing interfaces between Asprova and the ERP/production management system twice. A benefit of implementing Asprova first is that you don’t have to implement the ERP/production management system that may not be needed when Asprova is implemented. Generally, implementing a system and changing ways of operating the system require a lot more work than developing interfaces. Therefore, in many cases, it will be more efficient to implement Asprova first and then consider rational renewal of the ERP/production management system having Asprova a core system.
As a result of implementing Asprova, you could possibly expect the following functions to be transferred from the ERP/production management system to Asprova:
*Master data (item table, resources) maintenance
*Requirement calculation for raw materials
*Requirement planning for resources
*Staff planning/overtime forecast
*Automatic generation of manufacturing orders
*Automatic generation of purchase orders
*Pegging between inventory and sales/manufacturing orders
*Detailed finite-capacity schedule creation
*Short/long term load calculation
*Work instruction issuing
