Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that certain. Thus, many ERP systems are employing heuristics, algorithms, Read More...
