Create a comprehensive work requirement in order to request materials over a specified time period.

The Manufacturing Plan suggests work requirements and requisitions that need to be created and by clicking a button these docoments are created automatically.
In the main section of the document the information of what needs to be planned and for which time period is entered. By clicking the process button the MRP process creates the lines in the plan with information of supply and demand:

The information that is listed depends on the planning method used for the product.
The MRP process balances the demand with the supply, taking into account the dates of both and based on this information suggests work requirements and requisitions to be created. The generated lines can be updated manually. Also, changes to demand and supply can be made and the plan recalculated to see a new plan.
The Manufacturing Plan shows the demand for raw material that is required for the suggested work requirements and suggests requisitions without reviewing the supply and demand for the raw material. Once the requisitions are completed by the planner, they are input to the Purchasing Plan to calculate if any purchase orders need to be placed.
Once the plan is as desired, by clicking different buttons the work requirements and requisitons are created automatically.


Create and edit a manufacturing plan.



Add products to be included in your plan. Each product is shown on its own line.

Only products that are set up with the Production checkbox and Process Plan selected in the product are executed by the MRP process.
Depending on the product, different transaction types may appear in the lines. All supply transactions have a positive quantity, all demand transactions have a negative quantity.


By clicking the Generate Work Requirements button, the work requirements are created automatically. The documents need to be processed, please see the [[Work_Requirement|Work Requirement] section for details.
By clicking the Generate Material Requisitions button, the requisitions are created in draft automatically. The documents need to be completed, please see the Requisition section for details.
The requisitions can be selected as input in the planning method of the Purchasing Plan to be included in the calculations of that plan, in order to calculate if Purchase Orders need to be created.
Once the documents are created automatically, the numbers of the documents appears in the Work Requirement and the Requisition Line columns of the lines. The created purchase order is in draft status and needs to be booked. For more information please check the Purchase Order section.
