The Master Production Schedule (MPS) translates your business plan, including forecasted demand, into a production plan using planned orders in a true multi-level optional component scheduling environment. Using MPS helps you avoid shortages, costly expediting, last minute scheduling, and inefficient allocation of resources.
Working with MPS allows you to consolidate planned parts, produce master schedules and forecasts for any level of the Bill of Material (BOM) for any type of part. You can maintain and manipulate the Master Production Schedule forecasts using the Statistical Sales Forecasting module, and you can maintain separate forecasts for each customer.
