Time to Shipment MRP is a demand-driven planning system that only responds to actual demand originating from current sales orders. Demand-driven MRP is distinctly different than job or forecast driven planning and enables faster time to shipment with lean inventory.

To help you get the most out of Time to Shipment MRP, Build 396 includes a new set of educational materials. On the MRP - Education menu, the MRP Guidelines wizard includes new videos that cover every aspect of demand-driven planning.  The MRP workflow guide has been completely revised and is your ultimate print resource for demand-driven planning.
