Material requirements planning – MRP in Streamline
What is Material requirements planning (MRP)?
In order to calculate what material is required and when an order can go to production an MRP process takes into account information on the Bill of Materials (BOM), production plan and material plan. A material requirements plan is calculated based on the demand forecasts of finished products.
