SYSPRO’s Requirements Planning solution enables you to streamline production by providing you with the information you need to balance supply and demand, streamlining production and procurement. In this hands-on, detailed training session, we’ll cover all aspects of the Requirements Planning Solution, starting with a conceptual overview of how SYSPRO can be configured to recognize supply and demand, the MRP Forecast and Master Production Schedule. We’ll start by reviewing the ‘company-level’ setup options. The stock code and warehouse setup options that affect MRP are discussed in detail, including: part categories, the primary supplier, buyers and planners, lead times, batching rules and associated fields, MPS, gross requirements rules, order policies, transfer-supplied details, bought-out details, safety stock and min/max rules, and reorder quantities. As part of the hands-on exercise, we’ll configure stock codes and run the Requirement Calculation, reviewing discrepancies and how to correct them. We also discuss the Requirement Planning Query and Pegging, and lastly consider the methods of reviewing MRP actions.
