MRP Controller Determination

HI All,

Please note that i am having a scenario, weher in a single manufacturing plant 5 different types of product lines exist. I need to know if i can use a single MRP controller for the whole plant or do i have to define different MRP controllers for the individual product lines.

Kindly advice...along with advantages/disadvantages of both the scenarios.

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    As the plant is single with 5 production lines it is better to have a single controller as more or less similar materilas are planned for all the lines , if there are multiple controllers than it will be a mess in planning the requirement quantities for the materials , the only disadvantage with a single MRP controller his , the work load on that pirticular person will be more .

    Thanks and Regards,

    Mallikharjun.

    Hi Nishanth,

    Well you define the controller in the material master anyway, so it's upto you to have multiple OR a single controller. Basically the advantage with a single controller is that the processing during SFC execution can be viewed under a single controller.
