Once the production plan is created by MPS, the Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module assists you in managing the balance between supply and demand. The MRP module provides a comprehensive analysis of your material situation, including the suggested action to restore balance. It suggests when to release supply orders (for either purchased or fabricated parts) based on the most up-to-date production and demand information available. MRP helps reduce inventory, increase manufacturing productivity, and ultimately facilitates cash flow.

Using the Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module, you can:

  • Integrate forecasts, master schedule items, sales orders, and firm-planned orders for MRP processing
  • Choose between various planning policy options including discrete, minimum/maximum order quantity, fixed period, period supply, etc
  • Explode all assembly schedules into component requirements and choose between including or excluding firmed, released, unreleased, closed, or canceled requirements
  • Review and implement rescheduling recommendations for work orders and purchase orders based on actual production and demand schedules by severity exceptions
  • Choose regenerative processing or net change for level-by-level processing
  • Peg MRP planned orders to the next and top-level assemblies
  • Generate material reports for net by MRP rules or date required, with options for net by availability or after deduction for safety stock requirements
