Dynamic MRP™ creates a flexible and responsive planning environment. By incorporating architectural advances, Dynamic MRP enables planners and schedulers to generate and modify material plans on demand rather than overnight. In fact, Dynamic MRP takes only minutes to run planning cycles that used to take hours, frequently exhibiting an increase of 30 to 80 times faster than traditional planning engines.
The ability to rapidly plan and re-plan addresses the reality of changing priorities and new customer demand. With this increased efficiency, Dynamic MRP gives users the power to decide when and how often to update the material plan. The increased speed also means that a total regeneration can be completed instead of a net change process. This leads to a much cleaner, more accurate, comprehensive plan.
Dynamic MRP creates a smarter and safer plan: smarter because features like the “look-ahead” capability creatively address the issue of past due requirements and safer because the system uses a single rollback transaction to preserve the existing plan in the unusual case of a processing failure. Dynamic MRP planning works together with CTP so that you can use one or the other or mixed mode, depending on your planning requirements.
A state-of-the-art Planner's Workbench provides you with instant graphical representation of your plan and the problems on your floor that need to be addressed.
Dynamic MRP also introduces an unusually high level of auditability. Users can consult an extensive history of MRP logic and planning events to determine why certain activities took place and to optimize the system for future planning cycles.
