SYSPRO Requirements Planning assists you in managing the balance between supply and demand. The Requirements Planning module uses projected and actual demand and supply to assist in planning and creating realistic production, purchasing and supply transfer schedules. It also identifies capacity constraints and maintains optimal stock holdings in a multi-site and multi-warehouse environment.
Material Requirements Planning (MRP) helps reduce inventory, increase manufacturing productivity, and ultimately facilitates cash flow.Customer quotes with a high probability of becoming orders can be easily included in your MRP, giving you a more accurate assessment of your future planning and financial picture.
The Requirements Planning system (with its online Material Planning System and Job, Purchase Order, and Supply Chain Review programs) enables straight- forward conversions of the suggestions from the Requirements Calculation results to live data. It is a bucket-less system which provides the facilities to run 'what-if' scenarios. Variable planning intervals and user-defined planning horizons offer further flexibility. Dynamic capacity profiling, load leveling and single-level forward finite scheduling enable you to assess the impact of suggested jobs on your existing capacity loads.
The benefits of Requirements Planning
- Effective planning of material and production capacity to satisfy demand
- Identification of critical resources with rough-cut capacity planning
- Detailed pegging information available in queries and reports
- Critical resource queries facilitate effective planning
- ‘Bucketless’, date-driven planning environment for greater accuracy
