Businesses need to know how frequently to procure and produce, when to order, and from whom. MRP, a component of SYSPRO ERP, is your on-board Materials Management Ph.D.

MRP system looks at all included demand criterion, calculates supplies needed by when and from whom. This "psychic ability" comes from the system's connections associated to anything material and outsourced operations (sub-contractors). MRP then, creates "pegging" (lists of required components) to support the supplies and demands sourced from all parts included in bills of materials (BOM).

Highlights of MRP 

  • Supports varying manufacturing production modes;
    • Engineer to Order
    • Make to Order
    • Make to Stock
    • Configure to Order
  • Demand Forecasting: Utilizing MRP simplifies manufacturing planning by aligning specific demands to suppliers for on-time customer delivery.
  • Manages stock outages and over/under supply
  • Master Production Scheduling
  • Stock Codes With Demand
  • Forecast depletion features
  • Suggested Material Purchase Requisitions

 

Example pegging:

Item: B100 - Warehouse: FG 

View shows item forecast, due dates, demand and supply currently scheduled and actioned.

What happens next?

Operator may chose to reschedule purchase orders, jobs, sales orders as necessary to match customer needs and company schedule management. By double-clicking on a line Sales Order, Existing Job, Suggested Job, the operator may update dates, quantities, save those changes and the system will respond accordingly.

These changes are all done from the initial MRP Query and once done take the operator back to the query for other updates and changes as required.

Simply said, MRP tools are powerful, simple and enhance manufacturing capabilities to deal with real-world demand dynamic and ever changing production requirements.
