What are SAP Business One MRP Salient features?

  • Accurately predict demand based on forecasts, allowing you to adjust material planning accordingly
  • The planning wizard guides you through the process of creating planning scenarios in five simple steps. Scenarios can be run for a range of items or item groups, and once executed, the solution produces a detailed recommendation report
