Manufacturing Requirements Demand and Supply Pegging

Posted by Gerry Poe

Manufacturing Demand and Supply Pegging Using Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

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).

Introduction to Manufacturing Inventory Requirements Planning Overview

Posted by Gerry Poe


Manufacturing Material (Inventory) Requirements Planning (MRP) - an APICS Review; is a discussion of a major functional system, MRP, within most ERP software products. MRP operates as if it is your onboard Materials and Resource Management Ph.D. MRP is a system that knows all and tells all. That is, of course, what it can only know are data within your database included for calculations determining your gross and net requirements for materials and resources. If data are external to the system, they are excluded. You are encouraged to use your ERP system fully to gain the most value.

ERP Phantom Assemblies or Ghost Parts

Posted by Gerry Poe

Phantom Assemblies or Ghost Parts

Do you make multi-level products to order? If so, with SYSPRO you can simplify job scheduling and planning by using "phantom assemblies" to consolidate and reduce the number of jobs required.

In SYSPRO, "phantom assemblies" can be useful for multi-level products that are made to order. Instead of making all the various subassemblies each on its own job, you can use phantom assemblies to make them all within a single job.

Phantom assemblies are also useful for making items with customized options. Product options can be represented by phantom assemblies, which can be copied into jobs as needed to suit different product configurations.
