Material Requirements Planning

Flexible Configuration and Individual Planning Parameters

  • The canias4.0 MRP module ensures that individual material requirements planning procedures are configured. Thus, a definite and indefinite setting can be defined for the relevant requirement source and the requirement satisfying element. In the indefinite material requirements planning procedure, orders not yet confirmed can be included in planning. Several order size determination methods recognized in industrial literature are available in canias4.0 MRP. Among order sizing methods, there are linear methods such as Exact Quantity “Lot-for-Lot”, Fixed Quantity and Maximum Stock Level as well as advanced methods such as Economic Order Quantity and Part Period Balancing. In addition, minimum stock management is assured by defining a safety stock and reordering threshold for materials.

Flexible Planning

  • The canias4.0 MRP module allows for replacement of similar or related materials. Therefore, instead of a single material, a group of materials can be considered in meeting requirements and enterprises can achieve savings by reducing purchase/production activity. Selection of materials that are defined as alternatives to each other is carried out taking real stock levels into account and alternatives that represent the highest quantity in the stock are selected so that the stock level is balanced. Orders that cannot be completed due to various reasons can be included in planning as required, within tolerance parameters.

Implementation of Plans

  • Supply plans created by MRP are converted to real documents through the canias4.0 Production Planning and Control, Purchase and Transfer Orders modules and thus plans are implemented. The MRP module continues to consider implemented plans and users can instantly view the future inventory status.

Ease of Use

  • The MRP module works in integration with a large part of the canias4.0 system. All integrated modules feed instant data for material requirements planning and thus help the material requirements planning system to always remain up to date. Due to the net change system, when a transaction affects the planning status of any material in one of the integration modules (e.g. entry of a new order, change of existing orders, change of bill of materials, change of inventory stock) the relevant material is recorded for re-planning in the MRP module infrastructure. With the help of batch planning applications, these materials and their related materials are planned again and an up-to-date plan status is achieved. An additional feature of the canias4.0 system is the automatic batch planning execution on a periodic basis.

Focused on Future

  • The module presents various statistical estimation models to predict requirement changes in the future. For example, a demand estimate can be formed based on sales figures. This estimate enables decision-makers to better foresee future developments and requirements and adjust themselves accordingly. To this end, aside from simple methods such as arithmetical mean, advanced statistical methods like linear regression analysis or seasonal indexing can be used.

Optimal Structure

  • The module offers an absolute and reliable requirement planning that always prioritizes optimization of capital obligation. Data produced can be analyzed through a wide range of evaluation capabilities. This data enables companies to be able to appropriately react to changes.
