DTR Software International introduced Version 9 of The Manufacturing Manager, an enterprise resource planning system that ties together plastics manufacturing, distribution and financial management.
TMM v.9 allows processors to incorporate a hand-held personal digital assistant for warehouse management. Processors also gain full control over inventory by tying multiple units of measure to each item. It automatically calculates conversion quantities and relieves inventory in the base unit of measure.
A new feature is Insight, which allows managers to identify supply-chain bottlenecks quickly.
Production scheduling allows processors to access information on jobs at all levels on a single screen.
A customer relationship management function provides processors with seamless sharing of data throughout the organization, from the shop floor to customer service.
DTR, of Jacksonville, Fla., also introduced the Bag and Film Quoter, which analyzes processing costs of blown film extrusion, slitting, printing and other operations with ratios of raw material blends and bag dimensions, to come up with a quote.
