Materials Requirement

MRP - Overview
The main function of material requirements planning is to guarantee material

It is used to procure or produce the requirement quantities on time both for internal
purposes and for sales and distribution.

MRP tries to strike the best balance possible between optimizing the service level and
minimizing costs

Integration between master data, demand management, sales and distribution,

inventory management

MRP Overview - MRP at
Plant or MRP Area Level
You can plan material requirements at plant level or for different MRP areas.
System adds together stocks from all of the individual storage locations, with
the exception of individual customer stock, to determine total plant stock.
Individual storage locations can be planned separately or be excluded from
In the case of material requirements planning on an MRP area level, only the
stocks from the storage locations or subcontractor assigned to the respective
MRP area are taken into account. Only the requirements in this MRP area are
combined and procurement elements are created for them. This enables you to
plan material requirements specifically for certain areas.

independent requirement, that is, the requirement for the finished product,
tradable assemblies, trading goods and replacement parts.
In order to cover these requirements, MRP calculates procurement quantities
and dates as well as plans the corresponding procurement elements. The
procurement element in the planning run is the planned order or, for external
procurement, the purchase requisition. Both procurement elements are internal
planning elements that can be changed, rescheduled or deleted at any time.

MRP Overview - Material
Requirements Planning in the
Logistics Chain
The progress of the order for materials produced in-house is controlled by
using the production order. The production order contains its own scheduling
procedures, capacity planning and status management. Cost accounting is also
carried out via the individual production order.
Materials that are procured externally trigger the purchasing procedure. In
this case, you must have chosen suitable vendors or you must have drawn up
outline agreements.
The quantities made available by production or by external procurement are
placed in stock and are managed by Inventory Management

MRP Indicator: determines whether or not requirements, for a specific
storage location, are planned separately from the overall plan

Reorder Level: used for storage location MRP

Replenishment Quantity: used for storage location MRP

MRP Types

ND No Planning


VB Manual Reorder Point Planning:

MRP produces order proposals when stock falls below a reorder point. The reorder point
and safety stock levels are entered manually

VM Automatic Reorder Point Planning:

The reorder point and safety stock level are calculated based on the forecast results

VV Forecast Planning
The latest forecast is copied as requirements which are used to create order proposals
Requirement Types
Independent Requirements
Planned Independent Requirements:
Are used for the anonymous (Non-order-specific) planning of
production or procurement (eg. demand forecast)
Customer Independent Requirements:
Are sales orders on the system. Sales Orders are generally
copied directly into the PP system from the SD system, but they
can also be entered manually


Dependent Requirements
Are directly related to or derived from the BOM structure for
other items or end products. They are automatically generated
during MRP

Consumption Based Planning
Use past consumption data (historical
data) to calculate future requirements
With the help of the material
no reference to the master plan

The material consumption is consistent with

only a few fluctuations.
You have an efficient and current inventory

Reorder Point Planning

Forecast-Based Planning

Time-phased planning
Reorder Point Planning
The reorder point should cover the average
material requirements expected during the
replenishment lead time.
Important for defining the reorder point:
Safety stock, Average consumption,
Replenishment lead time
Reorder Point Planning
important for defining the safety stock:
Past consumption values (historical data) or
future requirements
Vendor/production delivery timelines
Reorder Point Planning
Manual Reorder Point Planning - define
both the reorder level and the safety stock
level manually
Automatic Reorder Point Planning - both
the reorder level and the safety stock level
are determined by the integrated forecasting
Reorder Point Planning
-continuous monitoring of available warehouse stock
within reorder point planning in Inventory
-calculates the net requirements
-calculates the procurement quantity according to the lot-
sizing procedure
-schedules the procurement proposal
Forecast Based Planning
Forecast-based planning is also based on
material consumption
Forecast values and future requirements are
determined via the integrated forecasting

Options are:

Automatically create for the entire planning horizon
Opening Period Parameter: allows the user to take advantage of MRP

Planning Run Types
Regenerative Planning all master schedule items are planned for a
plant. It is generally used during initial start-up to insure all items are
planned or when heavy maintenance causes most items to be re-
Net Change Planning only master schedule items which have
undergone a change to the supply/demand balance, such as warehouse
receipts and issues, are re-planned. It is common to run net change
MRP daily.
Net Change Planning in the Planning Horizon shortens the period
over which MPS plans to the planning horizon, which is set in
Customizing. It is typically set to the length of time of the longest lead
time item. This means that only those master schedule items which
have undergone a relevant change within the planning horizon are
