The nucleus of ERP

The nucleus or core of any ERP system is the Planning function, which is usually split into 2 parts: planning of factory orders and workstations on the one hand, and planning the availability, supply and removal of products, materials, components and raw materials required for sale and the manufacturing process on the other.  And it is not without reason that this forms the core of the ERP system because the planning function directly supports the value adding (core) processes of the manufacturing enterprise, and the production processes, on which their value and existence in the market is based.
