    Hi Syed,

    I am sure there is a lot of material out there to read on this topic, but to keep it simple n basic. I can equate it to the focus which you would accord to certain materials. Just imagine if there are thousands of materials & when MRP runs, each child demand is driven by the top parent demand. When such is the case, it would be preferable to first have an MRP run only for the top parents to see if the planning scenario meets actual business scenario.

    So if the planning is limited in scope to only the top level, it becomes easier to trace any excess stock being planned or any under planning as well, once this is traced & fixed, we can then proceed with mass planning across all levels.

    In industry terminology think of MPS as a prototype & MRP as the regular production. So i am sure you can now make a clear distinction of the same.

    Hope i was able to provide you with some clarity.

    Regards,

    Vivek

    Dear Syed,

    MPS is used only for those materials which greatly influence the company's profits and so proper

    planning is required for those materials.So for such materials MRP type will be assigned relevant to

    MPS.

    MPS will be carried out using MD41 and MD42.

    Also refer my reply from this thread,
