PrimaV® Production planning

With optimised planning and structuring of workflow, you can create the ideal conditions for a smooth production run. The production planning module offers the perfect functions for you to check material availability, as well as make material requests for both order-neutral and order-related items.


You can directly make orders or calls for contract quantities, and the material flow is also supported via an extended workbench. You can also create a capacity plan based on cost centres or machines.

    • Existing materials
    • Tools
    • Cliches

      Selection of orders to be produced based on various criteria:

Production / process control centre

Controlled guidance of your production processes

Production control enables detailed control of all your processes, from machine planning to production notification, all the way to product completion. This module offers Gantt charts or a numerical production control station, capacity management, individual process management and alternative resource groups. With the Production Planning module of PrimaV®, you can gain complete transparency and control of your production processes.

The PrimaV® Process control centre has been redesigned and now offers a variety of new options that make production even easier and more transparent.

Deviations are identified and can be taken into account in future pre-calculations. This optimises sustainably controls manufacturing processes and costs.

EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

Fully automated data exchange

PrimaV® EDI makes it possible to convert business data (such as orders, delivery notes, invoices) from your own ERP system into structured and standardized data and send it electronically, in just a few seconds.

This gives you a great potential for rationalization in your business transactions. With EDI, you can significantly reduce the manual effort required, while increasing data quality.

EDI can give you competitive advantages over those not using it. It improves your company’s organisation and simplifies and intensifies business relationships with partner firms (suppliers, customers, freight forwarders, banks, etc.). In this way, you can prove your quality and skills to your partners competence, for example with just-in-time deliveries.

Prerequisites for using EDI are standardised data formats for messages and uniform communication channels for their transmission. To achieve this, both business partners need EDI software. Our partner is Softzoll GmbH & Co. KG in Berlin.

PrimaV® supports the following message types:

Orders (commissioned by customer)

ORDRSP (order confirmation to customer)

Desadv (Delivery Advice Message)
