About ERP Systems for Make-to-Stock (MTS)
Make-to-Stock production is carried out with reference to a forecast or according to a demand aggregated across a number of discrete MTO orders. MTS parts are always comingled in inventory. The process includes analysis, planning according to MRP logic and evaluation of the planning results. Make-to-stock manufacturing is carried out without direct reference to a sales order.
The advantage of make-to-stock is lead-time - the lead-time is zero when the customer can get the appropriate products from the stock. But if different customers need different products - in other words, in case of mass customization - make-to-stock loses its convenience. In this situation, make-to-order would be more appropriate.
