    Forecasting and Planning forecast2SCP’s Planning module is a time-phased Forecasting, Master Production Scheduling (MPS), Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP), Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Inventory Replenishment tool.
     
    Quite simply, it recommends what to make or buy, how much to make or buy, and when to make or buy it in order to fulfil existing customer orders and maintain, but not exceed, desirable inventory levels.

    SCP Planning includes Material Requirement Planning, with multi-level bill of materials support. It can plan raw material orders directly or explode the raw material demand from the finished goods plan.
     
    It is being used in manufacturing, distribution and retail businesses – small, medium and large.
