Material Requirements Planning

Material Requirements Planning

Better planning ensures you can meet your customer commitments

Material Requirements Planning (MRP) optimizes your procurement of raw materials, allowing you to maintain optimum inventory levels while minimizing carrying costs. MRP gives planners a detailed, consolidated view of supply and demand. Once a production plan is firmed up, MRP can be used to create purchase orders based upon demand from firm planned MPS orders, open production batches, sales orders and forecasts.

Planners have a calendar view of planned orders with drill down, analysis, grouping and rescheduling capabilities. Through planning dashboards, planners can create a relation between demand and supply and determine why and when an item is required.
