Questions in the manufacturing processes such as "What, How much, When, For when, Why was it ordered, Has it been ordered, Was it confirmed or Was it received?" must find the answer in an optimal time and cost, regardless the manufacturing area. Any non-compliance with the quantities or delivery time can deeply affect the company, both financially and as image or position on the market.

Charisma MRP (Material Requirement Planning) turns the impossible to possible, with a financial management solution responsible for the entire manufacturing process. The product is absolutely necessary for the processes specific to the manufacturing companies, by automating and optimizing the purchase planning and inventory management.  Based on the history of the purchasing process, the inventory is permanently replenished through recommendations, schedules and customer orders, through reservations or reassignment of goods from headquarters to the subsidiaries, all in a simple and quick manner, without useless manual efforts.

Natively integrated with Charisma ERP suite, the module covers and optimizes the connection between the company's sales target and the product stock.
