PRT

Trying to set up PRT to keep track of utilization (ie. how much capacity it has over life, utilization rate "or strokes", and then have it create a purchase requisition when it is due to be replaced/retooled.

Everything else is pretty much set up, except for the functionality above. It is currently created, attached to routing, source list, etc.) I understand that PM may need to be used for this to work?

If there is any documentation for PRT's in general, please let me know.

    The PRT's will be tools/dies that are used to punch/or cut raw materails (often paper like). They are small boards with razor-like cutting edges that have to be resharpened. I am wondering if these should be material or equipment PRT?

      The PRT solution should create a Purchase Req/Order when the tool needs to be sent to the vendor to be sharpened. From what I understand, there are 2 options.

      1. Create a Material Master PRT - use MRP Manual Reorder Point planning for ordering when the Qty gets below X. When a tool is recieved in, it will represent X total qty for the total life. Each time an order is produced, it will deduct X from the life of the order.

      2. Create an Equipment Master PRT - I am still learning about the functionality of this but not sure, how, this creates a Purchase Requistion when a tool is needed.
