|Material Requirements Planning is the focal
point for optimizing the supply and demand
equation for inventory and production control.
Based on the demand profile including Master
Production Scheduling, Forecasts and actual
Sales Order requirements on line, MRP determines
the optimum buy and build schedule derived
from evaluating Bills of Material and the
associated inventory availability levels.
MRP provides a comprehensive view of your
complete materials status for all purchased
and manufactured items. MRP will aid in
reducing inventory levels simultaneous with
assuring on time availability of those items
required for production or customer delivery.
MRP will also integrate selected planning
parameters for parts including discrete,
minimum / maximum order quantities and
lead-times to assure the accurate planning
and scheduling for each item. Ultimately
MRP reduces inventory investment, improves
manufacturing productivity by assuring
part availability and bolster cash flow
by minimizing expenditures.
MRP is a key planning
and execution environment delivering:
- Fully integrated planning for Forecasted
Sales, open and scheduled sales orders
and Master Production Sheduling, all
designed to meet customer demand and
- Management visibilty to implement
rescheduling recommendations for work
oders and purchase orders based on actual
production changes and demand schedules.
- Pegged recognition of where all material
requirements are coming from based on
the multi-level Bill of Materials and
source of demand.
- Provide detailed material analysis
reports with user defined options for
netting methods, sorting parameters
and other management filters.
