Save material planners and buyers from routine and manual work

In the ERP system with such a function, it is therefore possible, with that 80-20 rule in mind, to further automate the 80% regular flow of orders.  Instead of just generating Planned orders where coverage is lacking, you can also have Purchase Orders and/or semi-finished product work orders automatically created with a particular administrative status. These would only need to be checked by the material planners and buyers, and then finally approved with a particular status, when pending orders are to be entered and released in the system. All the routine work of manually entering work orders and Purchase Orders is thus taken off their hands.
