3rd Shift Operations - Nightly Updates - General Feedback Needed

Looking for some general feedback from those who operate with (3) shifts with little to no disruption to nightly MRP processes - pre-COVID we were a one shift operation, currently we are working with two shifts with potential for a 3rd. We’re unclear what best practice should be for continuing our nightly process updates while accomodating operation processes / transactions.

Could anyone offer some feedback for your practices to make this work successfully with no disruption to both transactions and updates?

Thank you!

Hi Maggie,

We are a 3-shift operation on the shop floor 5 days a week and some Saturdays. Our office staff are on days (including scheduling). We run MRP at 3:00 a.m. daily with no issues while manufacturing is Labor Entry screen and shop floor is recording production.
