Dear Alejandro,

We are using the Unbeaten Path product PaperSaver and it is wonderful. We
had the exact problem that Milt spoke of in his response. The MRP "DUMP"
was so large, our planners, and purchasers, were having a very difficult
time monitoring the MRP exceptions. Our MRP exceptions report is over
1,200 pages. The PaperSaver report with all of the MRP exceptions is only
44 pages and is a lot easier to read.

Good luck and Merry Christmas.

[BPCS-L] Action messages MRP

Dear Alejandro,

A problem with the report that Klara refers to is that the information is
not delivered in user friendly way. The messages appear one per page. All
that paper delivers limited ROI because a few very important messages end
up co-mingled with hundreds of pages of messages that do not require

The net result at companies with large item master files is that planners
don't have time to go through the report; that means the crucial messages
are not seen and acted on and a vital part of the intended MRP II process
is broken.

Our product PaperSaver(TM) restores exception reporting as a vital part of
the planning process. For more details, see:

Warm regards and Merry Christmas,

MRP action messages are not stored, but calculated and displayed with
inquiry or report, when you run them.
