Materials Requirements Planning
Microsoft Dynamics GP Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) calculates needed materials by reviewing forecasts, sales orders, manufacturing orders, purchase orders, and inventory levels to identify potential inventory issues. Balance the supply and demand for purchased and manufactured items over a defined time span for more effective resource planning.
Microsoft Dynamics GP MRP provides an extensive view into materials requirements. Drive down inventory costs, reduce stock outages, and streamline the production process. Gain a well-coordinated purchasing and production plan by effectively accessing, tracking, and analyzing critical MRP data. Minimize costs by building according to projected demand.
The following features are included in Microsoft Dynamics GP MRP module:
Flexible Requirements Definition permits a customizable resource planning schedule based on actual or projected sales. Define material requirements, production planning specifications, bucketing options, and run spans.
Advanced Filtering filters data by item, planner code, buyer code, warehouse, or date.
Comprehensive Drilldown Capability quickly drills down on any quantity, via the Pegging tool, to identify the source of demand.
Better Exceptions Management broadens or narrows forecast views and improves response generated by previous MRP runs.
Designated Time Frames enable views of requirements designated by user-defined periods such as days, weeks, months, or in a bucketless format without any regard to time frame.
