'[OT]: MRP system'

Can anyone recommend an "entry-level" MRP software package. I am looking for
something  that will provide dbase for customers as well as inventory and
project costing. (Not too concerned with Accounting side as we already have
suitable package for this).

Thanks in advance

Regards

David Huisman

I use Parts & Vendors which isn't MRP but will do inventory
management & costings. They make the statement that it is
intended for use during the development phase rather than a
production tool. It is quite good for contract development work as
you can give each client their own database. Another advantage is
that it is an Access database so you can get at the data and
extract whatever you want.

A product that IMHO is better in the production management is
Trakit at http://www.kronix.com
You can schedule and forecast a bit better than P&V. However, it
does require a bit more work in getting the data in, in the first place.

There's a product called iTrex (http://www.xelosproducts.com) that
has been advertised in CCI recently. I have no experience with it
though.

All of these products are aimed at the electronics industry. It
seems that our requirements are a bit unique. Most of the other
things that I have looked at as MRP or manufacturing systems
have been a waste of time. To get something useful with
accounting functions requires both $$$ and someone dedicated to
using it.

At the moment I'm using Quickbooks for accounting and P&V for
stock management and I'm outgrowing it (mostly the Quickbooks
side) so if anyone has suggestions, I'm interested too.

Steve.

I know that your not too concerned with the Accounting side of things but
there is an accounting package that includes most (if not all) what you
are asking for.  Look at something called Peachtree.
