The System 21 DRP software can be made to be very useful. The biggest gripe 
that I have is that it does not have tools to help minimize system-wide finish 
goods inventory. When a business has multiple DRP warehouse locations (Centers 
and DCs), the target inventories are all independent of each other, so if 
Warehouse A has an excess while Warehouse B is in need of more stock, no 
suggestions are produced by the software to move inventory from A to B. We had 
to write an add-on at one of my clients to optimize system-wide inventories.

Is anyone using JBA's DRP solution?  What about non-JBA solutions like
Demand Solutions?

Thanks.
