This chapter describes the main functions and objectives of the Material Requirements Planning module. Based on information from other planning modules, BAAN IV can determine which assemblies must be produced and which parts must be purchased at a certain point in time.

The MRP module is the tool you use to convert requirements coming from higher level assemblies into planned production orders for lower level assemblies and planned purchase orders for components. The MRP module will generate rescheduling messages for existing orders that do not meet current requirements. It also generates exception messages for existing orders, such as order quantity inconsistencies, cancellation suggestions, and order release messages.

The MRP module is used to generate planned production orders and planned purchase orders based on the balance of supply and demand. It uses the economic stock for each item to determine a projected inventory balance based on future inventory movement. The MRP module receives supply information in the form of purchase orders, production orders, production schedules, and inventory levels.

The planned orders generated from the supply and demand information are subsequently transferred to the Purchase and Production modules. The MRP module uses the data in the Bill of Material BOM module to determine what parts to order and in what quantities, based on the components of the production bill of material, the net quantity required, and the moment in the assembly process in which the part is needed.

The Routing ROU module provides assembly lead time data which is used by the MRP module to determine when lower level assemblies and parts are required. After planned production orders and planned purchase orders have been generated, these orders are approved by the user and transferred to the Purchase Control PUR and Shop Floor Control SFC modules where they will be processed further.

Figure The main flow between the business objects in the MRP module. In addition, you can include sales quotations from the Sales Control SLS module and define forecast requirements for individual MRPcontrolled items in the Sales Forecast business object. In addition to the planned orders, BAAN IV generates rescheduling messages for any open purchase orders and shop floor orders that need to be moved in or out in time, based on changes in the requirements. These messages can be reviewed using the Rescheduling Messages business object.

BAAN IV also provides exception message reporting in the Exception Messages business object which helps you identify, for example, orders that should have been released prior to the last MRP generation. It is not mandatory to take any action based on the rescheduling and exception messages. Before using the MRP module, some master data must be set up.

When warehouses are defined in the Inventory Location module, they must be nettable warehouses if you want to include the on hand quantities when generating planned MRP orders. You are commenting using your WordPress.
