Used by customers to manage their manufacturing processes, Deacom's material requirements planning features are designed to ensure materials are available for production and products are available for delivery. Core MRP functions allow for:
Indirect requirements in DEACOM are defined as the quantity of materials required to satisfy suggestions for the displayed item in the Bill of Materials. As an example, a raw material used to make a finished good will have an indirect quantity showing in the MRP system if a sales order for the finished good is entered. Production jobs are not required in order to see the material requirements for a specific raw material because DEACOM takes scheduled sales orders into consideration when calculating MRP.
