Multi-Division/Multi-Company

INFIMACS II provides extensive interplant capabilities throughout all applications. Multiple divisions can exist in a single company, and multiple companies can exist in a single business entity. Each division contains its own inventory, cost, supply, and demand records. Engineering, sales, and purchasing can be centralized and decentralized concurrently. Forecasting, master scheduling, and MRP function separately for each division (or across divisions) for Interplant Requirements. Financial statements show the financial condition of each company, as well as any combination of companies, within the business entity.

Interplant Requirements Planning allows a “supply” division to plan, acquire and transfer material to meet the requirements of a “requiring” division. The material is procured at the supply division as a manufactured, purchased or subcontracted item, then automatically transferred to the requiring division, where it is stored and issued to meet requirements.

With the Centralized Sales feature, a central sales division enters orders for products which are supplied by other divisions, such as warehouse units and manufacturing plants. The central division serves as the clearing house for the incoming sales requests, while the supplying divisions perform the actual forecasting, planning, procurement, shipping and invoicing functions. The sales order and history records are maintained at the central division.

Centralized Purchasing supports a combination of centralized and de-centralized purchasing among divisions in a business entity. Purchased material required at “inventory” divisions is procured by one or more other “buying” divisions. For the purpose of planning, MRP recognizes which divisions are buying the material, and which are receiving it.

With Centralized Engineering active, a central engineering division establishes and maintains certain item master and bill of material records that are common to other divisions within the business entity. This allows the other divisions to use these items and bills, without the need to duplicate and maintain the records at each division. Work orders and other inventory functions validate items against the centralized division records, based on a pointer within the inventory item master records at the inventory divisions.

INFIMACS II security provides the capability to restrict the availability of one division’s data from users at other divisions. Restricted users will be unaware that other divisions exist in the INFIMACS II database. However, “Super Users” may be established. These users will be permitted access to data from multiple divisions.

INFIMACS II Multi-division Processing provides for multiple company management of the corporation’s financial records. Each company will process its own general ledger, accounts receivable and accounts payable. However, the user may choose to consolidate all divisions into a single company. The division/ company relationship may be one-to-one or many-to-one.

INFIMACS II Multi-division Processing provides for the centralized processing of cash receipts. Cash may be received at the corporate division and distributed to receivables at subsidiary divisions. INFIMACS II Multi-division Processing provides for the consolidation of certain information at the corporate division.

Consolidated Material Requirements, Cash Receipts, Gross Margin, and Accounts Receivable Aging information are all available to the corporate division.

In addition to Inter-division buying, described above, Multi-division Processing provides Inter-division Material Transfer and Inter-company Journal Entry.
