Material requirement planning will allow you to fulfil orders as part of SAP Business One.
In SAP Business One there is an MRP wizard. This SAP MRP tool will look at stock levels and requirements. It helps replenish production and can help with purchasing requirements.
It also has other factors such as sales documents, so the system can see what is already planned to go out etc. The system shows stock that needs to be purchased and the amount purchased.
Within the MRP module you can see the order recommendations. It recommends how much of a particular material etc needs to be ordered, how they are to be produced and when the order needs to be fulfilled by. Purchase Orders can be put into a single order to help the buying process thus avoiding confusing and over detailed paperwork.
So, in SAP Business One what are the MRP features? You can have 4 key areas. These are: – the MRP wizard, recommendations, MRP results and modelling.
