    MRP Profile -All the MRP 1,2,3,4 views in the material master data are entered in this profile and create MRP profile.

    When you are creating Material Master in MM01 while entering the plant and storage location enter your MRP profile so that you do not need to enter the MRP data again

    MRP Group: You can create the MRP Group so that material can be tracked.

    Setting --> SPRO-MM-Consumption based planning -MRP Group

    MRP controllers : Setting --> SPRO-MM-Consumption based planning -Master data -Define MRP group.

    MRP types : Setting --> SPRO-MM-Consumption based planning -Master data -Define MRP types

    • HI

      MRP groups are used when the plant division for planning is not enough for the division of the different materials MRP requirements. You assign different groups according to the requirements to run MRP (different Settings). These settings will be taken in account when you run MRP for single item or total planning.

      MRP controller is the person in charge of the MRP run for the materials. It is still a further division on your MRP. This is work load related. You can have one MRP controller for materials with different MRP groups.

      On your MRP group, you will define the parameters for the MRP run. These parameters are calculated in accordance with the settings on your material master MRP views.

      Available stock =

      Plant stock - safety stock +

      receipts of (purchasing orders + purchasing

      agreements + production orders) - required quantity.

      This means that all the requirements are calculated in the bases of your material master settings and your MRP group settings.

      MRP TYPE

      It is procedure that you set in the system on how the

      Material is planned

      Reorder Point

      Seasonal requirement


      Vendor Managed

      Forecast Based

      Master production Scheduling
