Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

MRP 4FACTORY: Effective planning of material needs

Material Requirements Planning (MRP) makes it possible to rationalise material supply planning in order to meet demand for specific material indices on the one hand, and to reduce the value of working capital (working capital) to the necessary minimum by reducing inventories on the other. Adequate planning makes it possible to optimise the company’s procurement process and reduce inventory costs.

MRP 4FACTORY makes it possible to control the types, quantities and timing of production, as well as inventory control and replenishment.

Key benefits of implementing MRP 4FACTORY

  • possibility of automatic generation of a production plan
  • generation of production orders not only for finished products but also for components at all levels of the product structure
  • possibility of automatic creation of material requirements
  • balancing material supply with production plans

Planning parameters considered by the MRP calculator:

  • planning policies for the indices (POQ, FOQ, LFL, OTO),
  • MRP horizon,
  • aggregation period for planned orders,
  • order size,
  • safety stock,
  • minimum/maximum order,
  • rounding up of quantities,
  • index times (lead times): purchasing, quality control, production (in days or unit times), safety times
  • technology route code,
  • material structure code,
  • completion dates:
    • open orders placed with suppliers,
    • open purchase requests,
    • open orders from customers,
    • scheduled production orders,
  • periods of defined forecasts.

Motor and output data:

  • The MRP engine works with the accuracy of the plant over the selected time horizon,
  • generation of planned production and purchase orders,
  • generation of MRP action messages;

Data exchange:

  • Application data supply/export:
    • entering directly in the application in individual files,
    • automatic import via PIST interface from external systems (any IT system)
  • Method of exporting data from the application to external systems:
    • automatically via the PIST interface (any IT system).
