Why Choose SAP Business One for Production and MRP?

The SAP Business One Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module enables you to plan material requirements for a manufacturing or procurement process based on the evaluation of existing inventory, demand and suppliers on changing planning parameters such as lead time determination, make or buy decisions, and holiday planning.

SAP Business One MRP calculates gross requirements for the highest bill of materials (BoM) level, based on existing inventory, sales orders, purchase orders, production orders, forecasts, and so on. It calculates gross requirements at the lowest BOM levels by carrying down net parent demands through the BOM structure. Dependent levels might have their own requirements, based on sales orders and forecasts.

SAP Business One implements MRP in a way that provides structure, but in a flexible manner, so that the instincts about what orders may or may not arrive can be represented in the models of inventory and demand and can inform the MRP runs. The application does not place orders automatically, but instead suggests them. These orders can then be improved after inspection by purchasing professionals or production managers who may have special knowledge that goes beyond what can be captured in an MRP application. For small and midsize businesses, this architecture provides just the right balance between automation and hands-on control.
