Deacom, Inc. has released a new version of its Deacom Integrated Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software system for building-component and process manufacturers. The update includes major enhancements to the system's material requirements planning (MRP) and quality-control capabilities. The software covers all major business processes of a manufacturer, from sales and purchasing to production, reporting and accounting. The new version combines sales and production MRP data in one report. Manufacturers can view current or time-phased material requirements for their entire organizations, including on-hand inventory, issued and reserved inventory, items in quality-control hold, job requirements, sales requirements not yet scheduled as jobs, pending purchase orders, forecasts, and inter-company transfers, all from a single screen. The MRP software functionality lets users satisfy material shortages by creating production jobs, purchase orders and inter-company transfers directly from the MRP report. Users buying several different parts from the same vendor can build a multiple-item purchase order directly from the screen. Built-in drill-down capability allows for the viewing of real-time detail behind any MRP quantity, by double-clicking the number.
