Supply Chain Planning Software

DeHart Consulting has developed simple and effective add-on software for common ERP systems that enable the use of demand-pull, just-in-time supply chain logistics policies.  Fundamental to the implementation of efficient materials replenishment systems is the blanket order forecast-release process.  DCI's Supplier Usage / Release Forecast (SURF) reporting software is designed to efficiently communicate materials requirements and the status of parts usage to key suppliers.

Leveraging the client's existing manufacturing execution systems and material management systems, DCI's proprietary reporting processes require little to no re-engineering of the supply chain planning software.  An elegant solution to a complex problem that can be implemented on virtually any existing ERP / MRP system, such as Oracle, SAS, Made2Manage, MAS90 / MAS200, MS Dynamics, ... .

Compare this simple solution, and the dramatic reductions in inventory that are achieved, to the complex and enormously expensive solutions offered by other software providers.  The DCI solution can be implemented by our consultants and the inside IT staff in weeks as opposed to months and years and the resulting reports are as user-friendly as a simple spreadsheet.  Our supply chain planning software can be implemented with database tools as simple as Microsoft Access, or alternatively on SQL, Oracle, DB2, and countless other manufacturing software platforms.

Manufacturing Standard Cost Software

DCI provides a simple-to-use cost estimator based on the Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheet. Using this software, our clients can quickly simulate the cost of producing products based on the labor and overhead rates of various work centers as well as the material cost inputs and process yield losses.
