Demand pegging, exception messages, approved vendors, and new parameters improve Sage MAS 500 MRP

It is very difficult to drill-down to see why MRP suggested order quantities for particular items in a traditional Sage 500 MRP generation. A demand pegging inquiry is now available from the MRP planning screen. The inquiry is displayed in a tree structure showing the demand sources for a selected item in the material plan. Demand can include sales orders as well as transfer orders or work order material issues for required components.

In addition, new MRP exception messages have been added to MRP to alert planners about critical material shortages and other potential issues. Exception messages alert planners to issues regarding the generation of both actual and planned purchase orders and work orders. Planners can double-click on a specific exception message to move directly to the transaction detail for the item where they can drill further into the source of the exception.

Inventory items can be flagged as “make to order” so that MRP generates planned work orders dependent to each sales order line quantity with the sales order line copied to the work order as a reference.

The MRP Scheduled Generation Utility is a huge benefit for companies with thousands of item warehouse combinations and those companies who need to plan in daily or weekly buckets for an extended time frames since MRP can be scheduled to run at night or over the weekend or during other off-peak times to improve processing speed. The scheduling utility can be setup to run different MRP versions and can be scheduled for a one-time generation or as an on-going event. Planners will return in the morning to see a fresh MRP Generation to use for their daily planning activities.

Users may define a minimum or maximum order quantity for purchased items similar to the min/max options for manufactured items in Routing Maintenance. Further, purchase multiples may be defined for case packs, truckload quantities, carton orders, or other mandatory purchase multiples.

Dozens of additional features have been added through the combined efforts of actual users who requested additional functionality to improve the material planning process.
