Predictive Material and Resource Planning (pMRP)

Hello Friends,

In this Blog will discuss What’s New about Predictive Material and Resource Planning (pMRP)

With SAP latest release on 1909 HANA On-Premises Version, new functionality has been introduced to improve Capacity Issues, the new functionality is pMRPPredictive Material and Resource Planning

The same is available in 1905 Cloud version as well

Before we go in detail it’s not Existing MRP (Material Requirement Planning) it’s a brand new functionality.

PMRP helps us to identify capacity load issues and solve them early in the planning stage itself.

The main motto of pMRP is to identify capacity issues and to evaluate possible cases at early based on the requirements plan it uses a simplified material requirements algorithm.

Based on the results of the simulation, production planners or Shopfloof incharges will take decisions on changed conditions, for example, whether to make the product or buy the product.

pMRP Process

pMRP Process will as per below flow, will discuss in detail one by one. before that Master Data is Important

Basic Data for pMRP

Before working on pMRP simulations, we need to make sure that we have basic MRP data active versions.

Make sure that we have the following basic data available:

  1. Material
  2. Bill of Material
  3. Work center
  4. Routing
  5. Production version
  6. Planned Independent Requirements (PIRs)
  • Define Simulation
  • Copy and Simplify Master Data = Reference Plan
  • Create pMRP Simulations

By using New Fiori Apps Schedule pMRP Simulation Creation

With this App, we can schedule pMRP simulations. In order to process simulations, the system creates data based on our operative data for material resource planning. This data is used as reference data in pMRP

  • Process pMRP Simulations

With this App, we can create multiple simulations, check the impact of simulated changes to capacity or demands, and make decisions for our production planning team.

with this app we can also perform Demand Plan Simulation  & Capacity Plan Simulation in each simulation we will have different parameters that can be simulated or adjust accordingly

 

This is a high-level overview of pMRP, and my understanding of the functionality very soon the same will be processed in the HANA 1909 system and will share in detailed knowledge with step by step process

 

Please like and share with others as well.

Thanks & Regards

      Hi Ruthvik Chowdary

       

      Really it's very Interesting innovation in 1909,

      Looking Forward to seeing in System with steps 🙂

      two questions:

      1. are the 1st 2 steps in the pMRP process  ( Define Simulation and Copy and Simplify Master Data = Reference Plan) executed using fiori apps or are they just planning steps before executing the Schedule pMRP Simulation app?
      2. when I execute the Schedule pMRP Simulation app, I get an error message 'not authorized' even though the role SAP_BR_PRODN_PLNR is assigned to my user. Any thoughts on how to resolve?

      Hi Doug

      1 They are Planning Steps before we start Simulation .

       

      2. Check if App OData is activated along with CIF Path with the help of Security & Basis Team

      Hi Doug Gibson , Ruthvik Chowdary ,

       

      I’m having the same issue with #2. Everything specified on the fiori apps library page is activated.

      User has sap-all and the role SAP_BR_PRODN_PLNR. Other scheduling apps such as "Schedule mRP run " , for example, do not show this behavior.

      Did any of you find a solution to this problem?

       

      Thanks in advance!
