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 ERP, is your on-board Material 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 Pegging:

  • Supports varying manufacturing production models; Engineer to Order, Make to Order, Make to Stock, Configure to Order, etc.
  • 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
