Concepts and Logic of MRP
Material Requirements Planning (MRP) is a set of planning tools that lets you both estimate potential demand and propose the supply that will answer this demand. It does this by generating job, purchase, and transfer order suggestions.
MRP is designed primarily for companies that manufacture make to stock quantities or mixed-mode manufacturers that run both custom and stock products. Regular use of MRP lets you anticipate the future demand for your company’s products, ensuring that materials are in the right place at the right time.
This functionality gives you the ability to forecast production and material demand. It also gives you a fast way to create suggestions that can be turned into job, transfer order, or purchase order records.
Before you use this functionality, you must have accurate methods of manufacturing designed for your part records, solid Engineering Change Order (ECO) control, accurate inventory records, thorough Lead Time values for purchased and transferred materials, and proven capacity estimates for resources and resource groups.
The MRP engine places demand against the above information to calculate the job, transfer order, and purchase suggestions. The source of the demand determines the part quantities needed to be either produced or purchased.
