Hello,
DRP also requires the MPS flag to be on. Sounds like you have no frozen time 
fence for planning. MRP will let you take todays rush order for an item with 10 
day lead time and dump it onto the shop floor with tomorrow as the due date. 
Some folks dont like that but it is music to the ears of any old underemployeed 
expediter. The benefit of the MRP 'only' setup is that any change to supply or 
demand at the top will pass thru the structure in one run of MRP.
Regards,
Larry

Hi

I dont think you will loose anything, other than ATP and Rough Cut Capacity
Planning, if you use it. RCCP uses MPS items only.

version 6.1

my question is whether i need MPS. we have a few items coded as MPS
controlled items, but i'm thinking i should change these to just MRP
controlled. we do run MPS every evening before running MRP. 

we are almost exclusively a make to order business. our forecasting
practice is to download sales to excel, run excel's forecasting
function, and then upload the new forecasts into the MRP forecast file.
i'm not aware on anybody that used ATP, or even looks at any MPS
reports. 

so if i just changed the MPS controlled items to MRP controlled and
stopped running MPS, would i lose anything?
