Canias-ERP Material Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module makes material-based planning for all needs that will arise based on the request documents opened during the procurement process.

Thus, procurement documents are created at the planning stage, which will ideally meet all needs. These documents can be easily converted into finalized documents thanks to the easy integration provided with the system in general. In addition, tracking of all procurement documents opened for each requested document included in the supply chain is easily provided and reported with the help of this module. Therefore, this module is located at the very center of the logistics chain within an organization.

Each industry has its own variables in supply chain management and these variables can be significant for the planning strategy. Canias-ERP ensures that the optimal planning method is easily identified and implemented with the numerous parameters of the Material Requirements Planning module. Additionally, the flexible structure of the module allows simulations for possible scenarios using multiple planning strategies for a material.



The module provides different planning options for the same materials by using different setting types in order to plan with the conditions closest to reality. It is possible to observe the extent to which each possible scenario will affect the planning through simulation plans that can be carried out in parallel with the actual planning process of a material.



Material Requirements Planning module works fully deterministic. Requirement planning is done with perfect time accuracy so that the most suitable supply chain is created. In addition, the atomic time unit, if desired, can be determined by week, month, or a time period the user defines. This feature allows users to show tolerance and reduce the error rate in plan estimates. In addition, in the scheduling of the created plans, results that are closest to reality are acquired by using critical data such as order delivery time, production preparation/machinery/ labor times, purchase delivery time.

The module works perfectly in amount calculations. Many of the accepted industry standard order size determination methods are available in this module. In addition to linear methods such as Lot-for-lot, Fixed Quantity, Maximum Order Level, advanced methods such as Economic Order Quantity, Minimum Unit Cost, Minimum Total Cost, and Part Period Balancing are used to determine order size. In addition, safety inventory and re-order points can be defined for the appropriate category of materials and minimum inventory management can be provided.



The Material Requirements Planning module allows the use of similar materials interchangeably. Thus, companies can consider a group of materials instead of a single material to meet their needs. This helps to reduce the extra purchase-production activities and promotes savings in enterprises. The choice between the materials defined as one other’s alternatives on the system is made by taking the actual stock levels into account. Companies can manage the choice of the ideal alternative material according to the determined priority levels through the system.



The Material Requirement Planning module works in integration with all modules related to materials, especially Base Data Management, Bill of Materials Management, Route Management, Sales Management, Budget Management, Stock Management, Production Management, Purchase Management and Transfer Management modules.

The modules included in the integration provide instant data for planning, about all expected inputs and outputs. Thus, the system is always up to date. With the Net Change System, if there is a material-related change in any of the integration modules, the module automatically saves the information and makes re-planning for the relevant material. With the help of collective planning transactions, these materials and the related materials are re-planned and the current plan status is reached. In addition, the system allows users to run batch planning applications periodically and automatically.

Purchase requisitions and production plans created by the Material Requirement Planning module are converted into real documents such as purchase orders and production orders through the Production Management, Purchase Management, and Transfer Management modules. Thus, the plans made on the system are activated. In addition, this module monitors the finalized documents and allows users to instantly view the future stock status.
