Master Production Scheduling (MPS)
Master Production Scheduling (MPS) provides a master plan for what you need to produce, how much and when to produce it. Your open production orders, sales orders and forecast entries are used as finished goods demand, and your inventory levels, batch production jobs, and receipts are considered as supply. MPS generates an accurate, detailed schedule of orders across one or more plants, based upon this granular view of supply and demand.
Planners have a calendar view of planned orders with drill down, analysis, grouping and rescheduling capabilities. Through planning dashboards, planners can create a relation between demand and supply and determine why and when an item is required.
