MRP TYPES (how materials should be planned) MRP NO PLANING CONSUMPTION BASED: _Based on historical rates of consumption (past cons) _Appropriate for low value mat (b,c parts) _No ref. to master plan (not triggered by ind. req) _Net req. cons. is triggered when: *stock levels fall below a reorder point (safety stock) or *by forecast req. (from past cons. data). _Appropriate for mat. with demand consistent _Ind-Dep. Req and sales order don’t affect them.

Stock + fixed receipts that exists (PR, PO,Pln.O, PrO) VS Safety Stock + Requirements (Pln Ind. Req, Sales O) = quantity available for planning.

Production plan (based on sales plan) can be created several ways: = to sales plan, target stock level, days supply, inventory to zero, manually) Feasibility estimates

Multilevel Backward Scheduling The system calculates the start dates based on a end date. MRP RUN Planning run can be done in 2 levels: 1. Total planning (planning of all materials of one or several plants.(online or in the background). 2. Single-item planning: 2.1. Multilevel. Planning of all BOM’s materials 2.2 Single-level. Planning of a specific material 2.2 Interactive. Interactive single-level planning

Is a Product family. It groups together products with similar plann. charact.

Forcasting = Warehouse Req. = Planned Ind. Req.
Disaggregation To create a Sales or Prod. Plan at one level we must disaggregate. For ex. disaggregate the sales plans of all the product groups down to the materials, and develop production plans at that level. The plan that is sent to demand manag. is used to manage the Ind. Req.

P.Groups require a proportion factor. A higher level is disaggregated to a lower level

MAKE TO STOCK PROD: Plan consump. are forecast, then procur. and prod. takes place without Sales Orders. Requirements covered by warehouse stock (=>shorter delivery time). SUBASSEMBLY PLANNING: Prod for assemblies. The finished products are not produced to stock, rather the necessary assemblies are procured. MAKE TO ORDER PROD: products are procured and produce once a Sales Order arrives.
STRATEGY 40 – Planning with Final Asembly =>fast reaction to customer demand

MRP is set of techniques that uses BOM data, inventory data, and the MPS to calculate requir. for materials. Time-phased MRP begins with the items listed on the MPS and determines 1. The quantity of all components and mat. required to fabricate those items and 2. the date that the components and material are required. Time-phased MRP is accomplished by exploding the BOM, adjusting for inventory quant, and offsetting the net requirements

Proc. and Prod. of all comp. and assemblies is triggered by Plnnd. Ind. Req. in Demand Mgt before a Sales Order arrives. Incoming Sales Orders consume these Plnnd. Ind. Req. If Sales Ord. exceed Pl. Ind. Req, a new Plnnd Order for the unplanned quantity is trigger for the next MRP run (thus Sales Ord. affect requirements).
Determines the direction on the time axis in which the arriving sales orders are to consume the Plnnd. Ind. Req.

(MPS) - Master production scheduling is a form of MRP that concentrates planning on the parts or products that have the great influence on company profits or which dominate the entire production process by taking critical resources. These items are marked as ‘A’ parts (MPS items) and are planned with extra attention. These items are selected for a separate MPS run that takes place before the MRP run. The MPS run is conducted without a BOM explosion so that the MRP controller can ensure that the Master schedule items (MSI) are correctly planned before the detailed MRP run takes place. MPS operates within only one level of the BOM, While MRP can be utilized throughout all levels of a material’s BOM.

Only in the opening period

M1. BACKWARD CONS: the Sales Ord. consumes Pln. Ind. Req. that lie before this sale. M3. FORWARD CONS: the Sales Ord. consumes Pln. Ind. Req. that lie after this sale. M2. BACK/FORW CONS: uses both. By default Backwards consumption. The mode and the periods can be defined in the Material master or in each MRP group.
