ABEJA PLUS MRP Material Requirements Planning. Supply Chain Planning users can employ additional functionality to generate and manage their material and distribution requirements across multiple, interdependent organizations. See: The Multiple Organization Model and Material and Distribution Requirements Planning.
Material requirements planning (MRP) calculates net requirements from gross requirements by evaluating:
The master schedule
Bills of material
On-hand inventory balances
It then plans replenishments by creating a set of recommendations to release or reschedule orders for material based on net material requirements. These planned recommendations are stated in:
discrete quantities, with due dates
repetitive build rates, with first and last unit start dates
ABEJA PLUS MRP assumes infinite capacity is available to meet the material requirements plan. However, you can use capacity planning to verify that sufficient capacity exists to support your material plan.
Supply Chain Planning users can also generate distribution requirements plans (DRP) and manage their material requirements across multiple, interdependent organizations.
