    As far as i'm concerned, i hope u mean to say "Master Plan Report" as "Master Production Scheduling - MPS ".

    Here is some points:

    The aim of MPS is to reduce storage costs and to increase planning stability. This is useful in the following cases:

    - To ensure that there is good material availability, various floats and a safety stock are entered, which inevitably lead to high stock levels. Thus, high storage costs are incurred, especially for valuable materials.

    - The master plan of these materials greatly influences the entire production process: The planning of the dependent parts depends on the planning result of the finished products and main assemblies, even if the finished products represent a small share of all the materials to be planned. Frequent changes at finished product level can render the complete MRP run unstable.
