MRP Group

The MRP group contains all the materials from the point of view of MRP for assigning special control parameters for the total planning run. These control parameters include, for example, the strategy group, the consumption mode, and the planning horizon.

MRP Area

MRP Area represents a separate organizational area for which you can carryout MRP Separately.

An MRP area can include one or several storage locations of a plant or a subcontractor. You can define MRP areas within a plant.

By defining MRP areas, you can carry out MRP specifically for each area. This enables the right quantity of materials to be provided on time for each individual area, like, for example, a certain production line, a storage location for spare parts or subcontractor stock.
