The MRP module is miraculous. It uses inventory balance and ordering information along with your input on how things should be managed, to provide the company with a logically correct materials and production plan. The system balances your objectives with reality to map out a strategy that satisfies the needs of the management and your customers.
The process is driven by customers orders, sales forecasts, and production plans. And checked for sanity by rough-cut and actual capacity plans in MPS and later MRP.
New purchase and manufacturing orders are planned to meet demand. Individual planners and buyers are notified through the IMP module when orders need to be reviewed for approval and release.
