Schedule MRP Runs (f11339)

Key Features

  • During the MRP run, the system checks whether current material demand can be covered by current inventory and expected material receipts. In a regenerative MRP run, the system plans all materials irrespective of whether they have been changed since the last MRP run. In a net change MRP run, the system only includes materials that have been changed since the last planning run in the new planning run. If current demand is not covered, the system creates planned orders in the case of in-house production and either purchase requisitions or schedule lines for external procurement.
  • You can use this app to create and schedule a job for executing your MRP runs. To automate the planning process, the MRP run has to be carried out on a regular basis so you can use this app to create a job that performs this task for you; reducing your workload by running this task smoothly in the background.

You can perform the following tasks if the role Production Planning - MRP Runs is assigned to your user:

  • Create and schedule jobs for your MRP runs. You can define
  • The description, start date, start time and recurrence of the MRP run
  • Specific control parameters for the MRP run
  • The planning scope of the MRP run.
  • Monitor the jobs and display information on the status, planned start, end, and duration, for example. In the Job Details screen you can display a log with information on the planning run
  • Cancel the job.

Monitor Material Coverage - Net and Individual Segments(F2101A)

With this app, you can monitor all the materials in a selected area of responsibility. This includes collective requirements materials, make-to-stock and make-to-order materials, and materials for direct procurement. You are provided with a list of all materials with a net requirement segment or individual planning segments, which considers the following planning segments:

  • Net segment – planning for the whole MRP area •Individual customer segment – using sales order stock
  • Individual project segment – using project stock
  • Segment for direct production planning – with direct creation of planned order
  • Segment for direct procurement planning – with direct creation of purchase requisitions

The system calculates the requirements for each segment separately. The materials of these planning segments might have coverage issues according to a specified shortage definition. The shortage definition you choose contains a set of rules that the system uses for calculating the material shortages. These rules define the scope of the shortage calculation, meaning the supply and demand elements to be considered and the conditions that have to be met to be a relevant shortage. You can use the default filters Time till Shortage, Material, and Individual Segment to narrow down the scope of your list.

This app provides you with the information that you need to be able to react to the shortage situation on time, meaning that you can avoid disruptions to production or to the fulfillment of customer demands. From this app, you can directly navigate to the Manage Material Coverage app to view details of the selected materials and check different solutions.

Key Features

  • Select an area of responsibility •
  • Select a shortage definition depending on how you want the system to calculate the material shortage
  • Narrow down the scope of the material list by using the Time till Shortage filter as well as other filters
  • View a material list according to the selected shortage definition as well as other selection criteria

  • Display and configure a chart that shows the stock availability of a selected material within the horizon you select
  • Navigate from the projected stock quickview to the Manage Material Coverage app by choosing Check Material Coverage & Open a quickview for the material
  • Open a quickview with a list of suppliers for a material if there is more than one
  • Tailor the app to your needs and save the combination of shortage definition and filters as a variant
  • Save your personalized variants as tiles on your home page from which you can access this Monitor app or directly navigate to the respective Manage app
  • View details of selected materials and check different solutions in the Manage Material Coverage app
  • Find which shortages you accepted in the Manage Material Coverage app

Manage Purchase Requisitions (F1048)

With this app, you can view and process purchase requisitions. You can only access purchase requisitions if you have an authorization for the respective purchasing group.

Key Features

  • View or edit purchase requisition items.

  • View the processing status of purchase requisition items.

  • Depending on the status of a purchase requisition item, you can create follow-on documents, such as contracts, RFQs, or purchase orders.

  • Preview and edit the follow-on documents that you have created. RFQs created from one or more purchase requisition items can now be previewed and edited directly in the Manage RFQs app.

  • Assign sources of supply, such as info records, contracts, scheduling agreements, or suppliers, to the purchase requisition items. Additionally, based on the suppliers operational scores and the price per item offered by the suppliers, you can compare the available sources of supply and assign them to purchase requisition items.

  • View the total purchasing spend of various sources of supply.

  • View the business card of the supplier.

App Extensibility

You can extend the Manage Purchase Requisitions app according to your business needs.

Key users can extend the app in the Manage Purchase Requisitions app using the business context SSP Purchase Requisition Item. You have the following options:

To extend the follow-on documents, key users can use the Custom Fields and Logic app to extend the following business context:

  • SSP Purchase Requisition Item

  • Purchasing Document

  • Purchasing Document Item

You can make custom fields available in several apps, and a handover of data is also possible by using business scenarios. After enabling the extension field for a business scenario, the value of this field is copied between the corresponding purchasing documents such as purchase contracts, purchase orders, and RFQs.

Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A)

With this app, you can create, manage, and search purchase orders to ensure that you get the ordered items on time, at the correct location, and in the required quantity.

As a purchaser, you can manually order materials as well as services.

The list of purchase orders that is displayed is based on the header level of the Purchase Order (PO), so the information shown relates to the entire PO.

On the overview, you can immediately see the number of overdue items for each PO.

The item categories Standard, Consignment, Subcontracting, Third-party, and Limit (both for unplanned materials and for unplanned services) are supported.

Key Features

To help you solve your material shortages, the system proposes different solutions. You can simulate the solution to preview its effects and you can apply the solution that best solves your issue.

Since this Manage app provides detailed information and proposed solutions for specific materials or items, you first have to select which materials or items you want to manage. Therefore, no separate tile is delivered for this Manage app. To access the Manage Material Coverage app, you first have to start the Monitor Material Coverage app and make various settings to display only those items you want to monitor. After selecting one or more items in the list, you can navigate to the Manage app where you can solve your issues. If you save your personalized settings as a variant tile, you can access this Manage app directly from your home page.
