One of the most critical and time-consuming aspects of inventory management is managing the task of maintaining sufficient amounts of materials on hand at all times. How many times has production or shipping been delayed because a necessary item was not in stock or you could not get it in time? The Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module for Sage 100 ERP (formerly Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200) can help you eliminate purchasing and scheduling problems. It is designed to simplify and speed up the work processes of purchasing, inventory, and production managers, enabling them to plan more effectively. MRP helps you quickly take into account and evaluate your demand, based on your open sales orders and sales projections. As well as supply, based on inventory stock levels and open purchase orders. Your build times, lead times, and supply and demand functions are all combined to estimate the need for each inventory item. With the MRP module, you can produce reports based on action-by date to advise the purchasing manager which orders need to be placed, which need to be revised, and which need to be canceled. The MRP module allows for entry of monthly and weekly sales projections by warehouse for each manufactured item and monthly and weekly sales projections by customer. These estimates, combined with sales order information, can suggest when to purchase raw materials and more. Eliminate costly production delays and simplify your scheduling.
