MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS PLANNING
QMUZIK MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS PLANNING (MRP) IS AN
EXTREMELY FEATURE-RICH AND POWERFUL PLANNING TOOL.
MRP DYNAMICALLY PLANS TO BALANCE SUPPLY AND
DEMAND AS PER PREDEFINED LOT SIZING POLICIES, LEADTIMES, CONTRACT REQUIREMENTS, SHELF LIFE EXPIRATION AND
QUALITY REQUIREMENTS.
These abilities escalate the Qmuzik MRP tool to being so
much more than a mere planning tool that balances supply
and demand.
MRP considers demand from the sales forecast, open sales
orders for products, spare parts and customer specials and–
repairs, internal requirements for maintenance and
equipment
refurbishment,
project
requirements,
subcontracted purchase orders, safety stock levels and stock
requisitions.
MRP provides excellent multi-level pegging to the source of
demand and identifies pegs and retains stock allocation and
stock ownership of customers and projects during its
projected-available and balancing process.
It has the ability to perform discrete contract- and project
planning where contracts and projects have specific bills of
material, routings, make/buy decisions, customer furnished
item requirements and sourcing rules. It provides dynamic
workbenches for materials planners, production planners
and buyers to analyse supply and demand, to act on order
release and rescheduling and to meet inventory turnover
goals and minimize excess stock and obsolescence. MRP
provides for multiple what-if simulations and MRP runs can be
executed real-time in normal working hours.
MAIN MRP RUN SELECTION SCREEN

Order splitting and auto-release – Qmuzik MRP makes
extensive provision for Supplier catalogues which also
accommodates pre-negotiated pricing with your
suppliers where the negotiated terms and conditions, lot
sizing rules, lead-time, data-based prices and discount
per item can be specified. Where contracts were
negotiated as such, automatic call-off against the
contract can be made by MRP with recognition of the
predefined preferences and via the auto-releasing of
orders to a supplier. Settings also allow for the autosplitting of planned purchase orders between suppliers as
per user-defined ratios and preferences.

Simulation capability – Qmuzik ERP allows for multiple
simulation scenarios. These may serve the purpose to
assist in quotes and deliver-to-promise analysis, to test
forecast feasibility in terms of material availability and
shop floor capacity, to analyse the impact of contract
cancellations, supply interruptions, major engineering
changes or new product releases.
Some special features of Qmuzik MRP are:


Real-time – Qmuzik supply chain activities constantly
informs planners and buyers of unplanned events via
mail prompts. These events may include stock
adjustments, scrap, quarantine, new sales demand,
engineering changes and others that may drastically
cause an imbalance in supply and demand and
threaten cost- and delivery targets. The MRP tools
provide real-time, online MRP runs (for selective parts or
Global) to be performed to immediately analyse the
impact and the actions to be launched as required.
Discrete project planning– Qmuzik ERP allows for the
specifying of contract- and project specific rules,
priorities and tactics. These may extend to contractspecific bills of material, routings, make-buy decisions,
substitution rules, QA and test piece requirements,
customer furnished items per contract, and sourcing rules
enforcing the use of customer approved suppliers or
OEM suppliers only and many others.
Although these simulations are normally performed on a
separate database, it can also be performed real-time
on the production database, which will then yield special
action messages, which planners and buyers can
recognize as being the result of a simulation and is not to
be acted upon.

Order operations and shop floor load– Qmuzik ERP
provides the option to auto-create order operations for
planned replenishment orders within a specified horizon.
This provides future visibility of shop floor load versus shop
floor capacity and thus allows advance planning to
reschedule, to increase capacity or to time the
downtime
of
machinery
and
equipment
for
maintenance or upgrades.

Work
benches–
Qmuzik
ERP provides multiple
workbenches in all areas of the supply chain
(Procurement,
Production,
Sales,
Maintenance,
Engineering) to analyse inventory, to identify and act on
planned order releases, rescheduling, cancellation of
excess on order, as well as detailed and graphical supply
and demand analysis. This includes shortage checking,
identification of standard items and substitute items that
may be applied, shelf life expiry details and extension
options, quality - and quarantine analysis and many
more.
MRP identifies these contract requirements and engineering
baselines and plans discrete replenishments in order to
adhere to such rules. It also applies the stock-commingling
rules that govern the extent to which stock can be shared
with other contracts and projects.
For projects it can further identify the specific project
element in a project WBS on a replenishment order as a
result of mapping the project WBS into the Bill of material
hardware structure. This ensures that project ownership can
thus be protected once items are received into stock.
This further extends to contract-specific bills of material and
routings with excellent options to base the timing of
engineering changes either on effective dates or on enditem serial numbers. The latter provides the ultimate solution
since it is not influenced by the rescheduling of demand or
supply.
