Is MRP Working For You?

Develop an SAP® MRP/APO planning parameter maintenance strategy to realize an optimized level of inventories…Today!

So…You expect a better supply plan from your planning systems.

We, at Lean Axis, have implemented SAP® in a traditional MRP environment for over two decades. Planning runs on SAP®/R3/ECC, and now SAP®/SCM (APO) are all, in principle, push based. Making such systems more responsive using in-memory technologies such as SAP® HANA, or integrating them with collaborative environments such as SAP® ARIBA and SAP® SCN does not eliminate the need to maintain correct planning parameters, which are often, too many.

Your product may contain a portfolio of long-lead items, high-volume items, made-to-order items, made-to-stock items, assemble-to-order items and so on. Your planning systems must support these strategies. Your procurement team must not spend the same amount of time procuring a high-dollar low-value item and a low dollar high volume item.

You must develop a comprehensive planning parameter maintenance strategy that supports your supply chain planning. Otherwise, your planning systems will resemble a black box spitting plans that no one would own.
