The Benefits of using Acumatica Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

Increased Profitability

Time-phased material planning ensures materials are purchased just in time for manufacturing. Critical material reports and exception messages help planners to respond to real-world changes impacting demand and production schedules.

Maximize Utilization

Accurate material plans ensure that material is available for production. This improves resource scheduling to maximize machine, work center, and labor resources.

Exception Reporting

Monitor material plans, material shortage reports, and production from a real-time dashboard. Drill-down to manage material plans using exception messaging to keep production running at peak performance.

What is MRP?

Material requirements planning (MRP) is a computer-based inventory management system designed to improve productivity for businesses. Companies use material requirements-planning systems to estimate quantities of raw materials and schedule their deliveries.

How does MRP work?

Unlike using a pull system where a customer places an order first before you initiate production, an MRP system converts the master schedule of production into a detailed schedule, so that you can purchase raw materials and components.

The basic MRP inputs are your Master Production Schedule (MPS), Bill of Materials (BOM), and Inventory Status (IS).

What is the importance of an MRP?

It is a framework to help businesses plan operations, control their inventory, and organize their logistics. Done properly, MRP tools ensure that manufacturers have the right quantity of materials at the right time for production to take place
