Plan is part of  MASTER-DESIGN® software's family, created for use in the firm

Plan solves in an innovative and comprehensive way the problems of orders acquisition and the consequent production management. It allows the users to work more efficiently trough its graphic and intuitive interface. In fact they can prepare the material for the successive steps in an automatical way.

Plan gives you suggestions about what can be produced,how it should be produced, what must be produced for third parties, what unstorable material can be ordered  .... what is necessary to finish the production. Only PLAN offers this wide range of personalizations: each functionality can fit every production need and method of your firm.

Plan fits every managerial system. The activities such as picking / preparing / manufacturing the materials are simplified by optimizing them on the basis of the manufacturing tipology, of the location in the store and/or of other kinds of reclassifications.The packing and picking can be managed with an automatic barcode control..

The starting-point is the customer order , which can reach the firm in the following ways

  • directly through ART by e-mail.
  • through INFO-CLI by data transmission  
  • automatically through Web-ART
  • from ART via Fax/;
  • by fax or telephone.

The manual insertion of an order by our operators can be made graphically and/or in the classic way by indicating the code and quantity of each item. The following steps are:

  • picking: creation of picking cards, technical cards for production, labels. With a possible automatic control trought TIME CHECK;
