DRP / MRP Module
Logistics Planning Associates, LLC offers a Distribution/Materials Requirements Planning (DRP/MRP) module that is fully integrated into its PSI Planner™ software system.
Our DRP module helps your company transition from a "Push" to a "Demand Pull" process, resulting in an efficient, Lean Supply Chain.
PSI Planner's™ DRP module develops replenishment plans by evaluating information such as order size, desired safety times/service levels, on-hand inventory, scheduled receipts and both forecasted and actual demands. PSI Planner™ compares future demand versus available inventory (plus scheduled receipts) to predict future shortages. It then schedules planned replenishment orders (factoring in lead times) based upon user set criteria.
PSI Planner™ is especially useful in a multi-level network, since it will net requirements "upwards" to each distribution center's source of supply as set by the user. In addition to deployment requirements, a Master Production Schedule (MPS) will be generated at the plant level.
Since PSI Planner™ has Bill of Materials capabilities, it can also function as an MRP system, exploding finished goods requirements from the MPS into raw material and component needs.
The DRP/MRP module is fully integrated with a Forecasting module which will generate item-location statistical forecasts (if the user hasn't imported forecasts generated from another system). It is also fully integrated with an MPS module to create a complete supply chain planning tool!
Our DRP/MRP and MPS modules are now available as a "stand alone" system going by the name of PSI Planner SP™. Please contact us for more information or "click" below to license PSI Planner SP™ now on Amazon at a special promotional price (available for a limited time only):
