    Hi,

    MRP controllers : It is like a production controller in an industry. He will plan all the required material for the daily plan.

    MRP controller doen not transfer as Production palnner

    In APO you have to create your own planners.

      Hi

      MRP controller is a responsible to plan production for the product in a plant

      and yes by default MRP controller comes as to be Production Planner into APO.

      and it true that you can also create your own production planner in APO.

      the main use of this field is to plan selected material in a planning run

      you can fetch different product in diffrent planning run.

    Hi Prasad,

    MRP Controllers are created in R/3 typically to assign the tasks for system planning. For example, in a typical chemical industry wherein you are mapping many products like solvents, powders, chemicals etc., if you want to carry out material requirement planning for different products individually, you can make use of these MRP controllers. Each MRP controller will be functionally controlled via system.

    In APO, the various controllers that are typically used are Demand Planner, Supply Planner, Production Planner, Transportation planner, etc., etc., This denotes the responsible person for that planning activity. You can assign planning priveleges to planners. You must select each application for which each planner is responsible.
