Many companies use DRP and MRP systems simply to generate a list of orders they need to make (or change, or cancel) in their backoffice accounting or ERP business system. Anytime Supply Chain software for Sage 500 ERP (and others) is a great tool for this manual order creation process as the planner or buyer can simply review the list of orders the system has suggested and they can create the orders manually.
The buyer or planner may also export the suggested orders to a Microsoft Excel file which can then be imported into their ERP system.
Another option available for many companies is to automate order creation from Anytime Supply Chain software for Sage 500 ERP. In this scenario, the planner or buyer will generate the order which will create an Excel file stored in a location that an automated data import tool can pick-up on a pre-defined basis to generate the orders in the backoffice system. Most ERP and accounting systems have these types of tools and those that don’t have other options available using ODBC and native Microsoft Windows and database tools. For example, companies running Sage 100 ERP can use Visual Integrator to schedule a data import from a file location.
