GPPS- The system for production, planning and control

The GEWATEC PPS system was developed for medium-sized manufacturing companies in the precision parts production, series production and medical technology sectors. In combination with the quotation calculation WIN-KALK, the quality assurance GRIPS and the MDE/BDE solution ProVis, a modern, powerful solution with unique selling points has been created.

GPPS Calculation

Fierce competition and high cost pressure are forcing manufacturing companies to use rational and transparent costing. The overhead calculation is based on a detailed machine hourly rate calculation. Recording costs at the point where they are incurred provides an ideal basis for costing. For example,all machine-dependent costs can be considered separately, since theycan be excluded from the manufacturing overhead costs .

GEWATEC offers you effective tools for the realization of multiple costing models. This puts you a decisive step ahead of the competition. In addition to the modules mentioned above, the software also contains the accompanying calculation, the post-calculation and the parts list calculation.


The ordering module is used for the rational execution of the entire disposition, especially of purchased parts, raw material and tools. Via the master data, suppliers and articles can be accessed to create the ordering process. Furthermore, different order types such as single or call-off orders can be selected. To complete the order process, one of the many delivery conditions can be selected. Via the goods receipt the order is discharged and the supplier evaluation is triggered. By means of the order statistics, open orders can be viewed and monitored.

Order management in GPPS

You create quotations to customers and interested parties in the quotation management. When creating customer orders in order management, a distinction is already made between call orders and individual orders. With the creation of orders, order confirmations can be sent to the customer automatically. The creation of delivery bills relieves the order. These in turn serve as the basis for invoices. The GEWATEC statistics module provides an overview of invoice journals as well as inventory overviews and sales statistics.

Set management for medical technicians

Set management is particularly practical for the retail and medical technology sectors. Orders in these industries must be created and managed quickly, reliably and with any number of positions. In contrast to the order-item logic, the generation of orders takes place in a table. In a simple way, items can be moved by drag-and-drop. Replacement and repair of sets are handled in the "Repair Management" module.

Warehouse management with GPPS

A prerequisite for efficient and meaningful warehouse management is the seamless recording of stock movements. Stock movements are recorded via terminals and smart devices. The software for warehouse management offers the possibility to make additions, deductions and transfers. Any number of storage locations can be created. As a result, stock, inventory and valuation lists can be created. In conjunction with ProVis, a valuation of semi-finished parts can be made.
Further features:

  • Graphical storage location display
  • Assembly postings

GPPS tool management

If storage and retrieval systems have digital interfaces, they can be integrated into GPPS. Tool dispensing systems often have such interfaces. GPPS supports a variety of interfaces to tooling and racking systems. The most important functions include master data as well as inventory reconciliation, inventory management and write-back of automatic stock postings. Withdrawals are carried out according to the specifications of the production order. Order proposals are processed on the basis of the MRP.

All described functions depend on theoutput system.

GPPS Disposition

The task of the disposition is to distribute the orders, material flows and stocks of goods on time. On the basis of the MRP result, required goods are ordered. One differentiates between the need-controlled and the consumption-controlled disposition. The user is presented with order and production proposals. Shortages are displayed in a gross and net requirements calculation.

KapPlan is a comfortable control station system for the scheduling of the production resources machine and personnel. With KapPlan, the occupancy and utilization of all machines, workstations and departments are displayed in a clear form. All operations of the production orders are displayed time-correctly over the time axis, taking into account the calendar. With KapPlan you have your production capacities fully under control. The graphical planning board allows you to effortlessly move operations by "drag & drop". Comparable to an early warning system, capacity bottlenecks are displayed immediately. Free capacities can be optimally utilized. Zoom functions allow the setting of arbitrary time windows. Operations can be moved across different workstations and departments.

GPPS Fibu interfaces

GPPs offers a wide range of interfaces to all major financial accounting systems. Our most important interfaces include Datev, Navision, Addison, eGecko and many more.
With the import of incoming payments from the financial accounting system, a dunning system can be set up as a by-product.


DFÜ /EDI is a standardized procedure for the electronic exchange of business data between customers and suppliers. For example delivery schedules or JIT delivery schedules are sent from your customer to you. In turn, you can send delivery bill and invoice data to your customer.
Support of all relevant VDA standards :

  • Goods tag (VDA4902)
  • Goods receipt/issue slip (VDA4912)
  • RDT delivery bill (VDA4913)
  • RDT Invoice (VDA4906)
  • Delivery schedule (VDA4905)
  • Purchasing (VDA4905)

Document Management System (DMS)

This module is used to manage any documents. In addition to digital documents, scanned documents can also be attached and managed. Documents can be stored for all master data and business processes. Documents can be copied to any module via intelligent distribution strategies.   

GPPS Shipping

The user is guided through the process via various shipping strategies for creating delivery notes. Quantities can be transferred directly to the delivery bill via connected scales. Goods tags and labels are created and printed out at the touch of a button. Each delivery bill created is reconciled with its order delivery schedule. The packaging material management ensures the correct booking of used customer packaging materials.
