Juno Raby - Vitality Works, Inc.

Deacom’s MRP system is an integral part of the production and inventory management capabilities of DEACOM ERP.

Core MRP functions allow for:

  • Reduction of waste by maintaining the lowest possible material and product levels
  • Planning of manufacturing activities
  • Managing of delivery schedules

Calculate demand based on scheduled sales orders, scheduled production jobs, and indirect requirements

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.
