Material Requirement Planning (MRP) in ERP Software
MRP SYSTEM MEETS YOUR CUSTOMER COMMITMENTS WITH IMPROVED PLANNING
Production planning software, commonly known as Material Requirements Planning (MRP) in ERP 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.

MASTER PRODUCTION SCHEDULING
Master Production Scheduling (MPS) provides a master plan for what you need to produce, how much and when to produce it. Your open production orders, sales orders and forecast entries are used as finished goods demand, and your inventory levels, batch production jobs, and receipts are considered as supply.
