Production Planning & ControlThe planning software for manufacturing companies

Smooth and transparent production

The efficiency of the Abacus Production Planning and Control System (PPS) is defined by direct access to all necessary information and data.

The demand for flexibility is omnipresent in small and medium-sized enterprises. The rapid adaptation of production processes to changing conditions is becoming a decisive competitive advantage. Orders, for example, must be constantly adapted to changing circumstances, be it through additional parts list items or operations. The Abacus PPS actively supports you by providing you with suitable tools for this purpose.

Cost transparency must be guaranteed at all times and in every phase of a production process. Even during the offer/quote phase, it should be possible to compare multiple variants of the production process with each other. With these calculative evaluations of production orders and projects, Abacus PPS provides you with important data for strategic decisions.

PPS was developed as an integrated module in the Abacus software system especially for manufacturing and industrial companies. Dduplicate article and stock data records, key disposition figures and address information are eliminated.
