    Hello Baxter

    I would like to continue from where manipal had left

    CBP is based on past consumption values and uses the forecast or other stastical procedures to determine future requirements. The procedure in consumption based planning do not refer to the MPS. i.e the net requirements calculation is not triggered by planned independent requirements or dependent requirements. Insted it is triggered when stock level fall below a predefined reorder point or by forecast requirements calculated using past consumption values

    Regards

    Consumption based planning is typically used for MRO (Maintenance Repair and Operations) items.

    For raw materials and semi-finished goods, the planning is driven primarily by the sales forecast.

    The lot size usually depends on the material characteristics.

    For e.g. if material is relatively inexpensive and small, then usually a fixed lot size (equal to few months supply) is used. If it is expensive or bulky, exact lot size is usually used.

    Hope this helps,
