Using Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option as an MRP

Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option is a powerful inventory software solution for manufacturers. In fact, it performs nearly all of the functions of a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system:

  • Monitoring quantities of raw materials and end products in stock
  • Optimizing inventory levels and keeping them balanced
  • Speeding up the processes of producing and delivering products

The only part of an MRP that Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option doesn’t do is actually schedule production activity. Fishbowl does have a calendar function, so you can schedule many things – just not one dedicated to manufacturing jobs.

The Manufacturing Option allows you to do many other things, including:

  • Manage vendors
  • Track parts and materials in multiple warehouses
  • Set up automatic work orders, bills of materials, manufacture orders, etc.
  • And more
