Order-based production planning

ERP solutions from ORDAT support you in secure order processing – from precise bid preparation to management for orders, projects, machines, or replacement parts, and planning assembly or maintenance. Production planning and controlling takes place on an order-by-order basis, using bills of materials and work schedules – which can be multi-level or adjusted for different variants – which you can create and administer easily. You can also handle procurement and administration for the materials and purchased parts you need through your ERP solution.

Efficiently manage and monitor resources and capacities

Powerful scheduling functions for orders, deadlines, capacities, and resources give you full control over your processes. Interactive tools for detailed scheduling prepare the results of your requirements planning and current production data in a clear manner and in real time, taking into account flexible machines, work stations, materials situations, and even planned maintenance orders. This allows you to permanently monitor your production processes and react immediately to bottlenecks.

Transparency for budgets, costs, and company figures

Thanks to the precise calculating capabilities of your ORDAT solution, including advance, simultaneous, and post-costing analyses, you can always maintain an overview of expected and actual costs while managing your orders and projects.
In addition, the solution provides you with flexible, convenient, and configurable reporting and analysis functions (business intelligence), with which you can quickly and clearly map and evaluate data relevant to decision-making processes within your company or area.

The flexible configuration editor allows your company to quickly, conveniently adjust to individual production processes.

  • Graphic visualization of production and maintenance orders, operating materials, and facilities
  • Presentation in Gantt charts and capacity bar charts
  • Schedule work processes manually or automatically
  • Bottleneck monitoring
  • Select from a display of individual resource, capacity group, cost center, or factory
  • Drill down function on bill of materials, work schedule, materials handling, order, simultaneous calculation
  • Online monitoring of production order status and progress
  • Reschedule orders via drag & drop
  • Various feedback methods for production orders


Consistent series and batch-based inventory management allows you to efficiently manage your deliveries to manufacturers and system suppliers – and thanks to seamless tracing for series and batches, you can successfully defend against unwarranted liability claims.
