Introduction:


First let’s have a short introduction and overview of the functionality of the "Material Requirement Planning (MRP)" Process.

Recently there is no blog to MRP related fiori apps let we know the Functions of MRP

MRP is the function or software module that calculates the need for materials and recommends production and purchasing activity (orders) to satisfy those demands.

Some examples for MRP types like PD, P1, P2, P3, P4, etc.
