Material Requirements Planning (MRP) features in SAP Business One 8.82

SAP Business One 8.82 Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

 

The Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module has been enhanced in the following ways:

MRP Wizard:

  • More document data sources for MRP calculation (for example, blanket agreements, recurring transactions, inventory transfer requests, and so on) and provision of flexible document selection
  • Significantly enhanced item and warehouse selection in the MRP run
  • Provision of extended control of item planning data when executing the MRP run
  • Expanded inventory level fulfillment options (maximum and required)
  • Enabled historical planning
  • Enabled automatic lead time calculation
  • Added future data display and calculation
  • Enhanced the wizard result display and recommendation report

 

Order Recommendations Report:

  • Enabled right-click menus for reports, which lets you investigate the item before you issue the recommended document
  • Enabled the option to select purchase quotations to be created instead of the recommended order
  • Enabled alerts for the recommendations

 

Inventory Transfer Request:

Inventory transfer request is a new document introduced into SAP Business One 8.82. You can now define inventory transfer request as an MRP recommendation type. This way, MRP will recommend inventory transfer between warehouses before recommending purchase orders or production orders.

 

Week Numbering:

Three options to calculate week numbering are provided in the Holiday Dates window. Your definition here will impact the presentation of MRP recommendations and forecasts based on weeks.

 

Forecast:

  • Enhanced the item selection methods
  • Enabled forecast generation based on sales history
