PropulsionMRP is a mobile manufacturing resource planning and execution system. The solution provides users visibility into their manufacturing processes and offers tracking and reporting functionality.
PropulsionMRP covers multiple stages of the product lifecycle. It provides a modular design and offers 31 different applications which can be scaled to adapt to manufacturing business model. Users can also implement a paperless system for manufacturing resource planning. The solution allows manufacturing managers to connect multiple facilities in the same system.
Propulsion Software licenses PropulsionMRP on either a perpetual or monthly basis. The system is priced according to the total number of users licensed, and is either available as an on-premise or cloud-based solution.

The system is modular and scalable. It allowed our management team to grow and manage the business without encumbering what we were trying to accomplish. The tools in Propulsion are entirely mobile as well. This mobility allowed us to use tablets on the manufacture floor to assist with tracking product. We implemented the core modules first. This allowed us to quote, set-up jobs, plan jobs, and ship product in the system while we transitioned from a paper system. As our understanding of the system grew, we implemented the quality modules, vendor management, purchasing, and maintenance modules. Once the system had been in use for several months, we then networked our machines. This gave us the visibility to manage our 2nd shift from remote locations. This software also allowed us to connect to our accounting software instead of implementing an entire new accounting system.
The software offers a chat room collaborative tool that needs to be more robust. Our company implemented Skype as an alternate solution.
If you need more advanced functionality, pursue Propulsion's custom solutions and machine integration. It is well worth the money.
