Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

Satisfy customer requirements while maintaining optimal inventory levels using the powerful MRP planning tool.

Synchronize Material Requirements with Production Schedules

Generate time-phased manufacturing and purchasing plans for optimal inventory availability tied to forecasts and actual customer demands. Reduce inventory, improve customer service, and avoid shortages and stock-out scenarios that result in costly rush orders. Use exception reporting to understand which orders to move-in or move-out, which orders to cancel, and which vendors you need to contact to expedite shipments.

Key Benefits of MRP ERP for Your Company

  • Improved Profits

    Time-phased material planning ensures materials are purchased just in time for manufacturing. Critical material reports and exception messages help planners to respond to real-world changes impacting demand and production schedules.

  • Maximize Utilization

    Accurate material plans ensure that material is available for production. This improves resource scheduling to maximize machine, work center, and labor resources.

  • Manage by Exception

    Monitor material plans, material shortage reports, and production from a real-time dashboard. Drill-down to manage material plans using exception messaging to keep production running at peak performance.

MRP Exception Messages

Work through the list of recommended actions – expedite, defer, or cancel supply orders – to keep your plant running smoothly and ship customer orders on time. Identify late orders and display any transfers available from another warehouse or site.
