In the future you might want to explore MRP Simulation Support.

BPCS has a feature where you can copy the MRP details to simulation files, just by taking a menu option. Then you muck with the plans in the simulation area, and run MRP in the simulation area, so you can see the effect of various tweaking. If you like the results, you can copy the conclusions back from simulation area to real area.

I am not experienced in this area. The only times we have ever used it is when a customer sends us a forecast for a whole year

get backup
key in the forecast as if it is real requirements
run MRP, get reference reports
remove the forecast data
replace MRP & continue business as before

I copied all of the live database files to a test library. Then, I cleared out all of the Supply and demand files. I even cleared out all the On Hand fields in the 3 inventory related files.

I wanted to start from a scratch system to observe transactions.

When I run the MPS, nothing is generated, BUT, when I run the MRP generation, I am getting a few records in the KMR file, and a few more in the KFP file. Right now I am stymied as to where it is getting the demand to generate these database records?? The MPB file is empty too.

Any clues?
