In a major global company, products are typically produced in a few countries, but sold and stocked in a large number of countries.
Customer inquiries for possible delivery dates often involves multiple companies and it is therefore critical that intercompany planning can run directly across companies.
The New MRP module runs CTP calculations directly across companies upon order reception, making it possible to provide ‘capable to promise’ dates when the order has been given.
Further – the New MRP CTP runs extremely fast even when products needs to be produced over many BOM levels and companies, as the New MRP uses the real-time-updated net requirements as foundation for the calculation.
Sales orders are CTP calculated across companies during order reception. Possible delivery dates can hereby be calculated from sales companies no matter the complexity of the supply chain. In this example, a sales order is received in the German company. The CTP calculation has immediately moved the demand to the US company where a planned production order have been created. The possible production date is hereby send back to the order recipient in the German company as a capable to promise date
