The Master Production Scheduling (MPS) functionality of BatchMaster ERP software’s MPS/MRP module assists manufacturers to compute and sustain an optimum manufacturing plan for what they need to produce, how much they need to produce, and when to produce, based upon sales forecast, planned purchase and production orders, inventory statuses, and work orders incorporating bill of materials to the lowest level. It provides the manufacturers with a detailed view of planned orders with drill down, analysis, grouping, and rescheduling capabilities, and allows them to create a relation between demand and supply and determine why and when batch jobs are required, through scheduling dashboards.
The Material Requirement Planning (MRP) functionality, on the other hand, assists production managers in scheduling and placing orders for dependent demand items, and to maintain a flow of materials required for production by determining what to order, when to order, how much to order, and when to schedule the delivery of an order. The functions satisfy both demand-driven and batch scheduling methods.
MPS precedes the MRP function, focusing on planning on parts or the complete product of the whole production process, and subsequently creating the production orders. Whereas, MRP uses and processes data from BOM, Inventory and MPS to calculate the future requirements for materials. It pulls the data on demand from MPS, and accordingly performs material planning and creates purchase orders.
