We have been using DRP to replenish our Distribution Centers for over 8
years.  There had been an issue with a record lock and an occasional
dating issue.  Both have been fixed.  
It has worked as designed over the years. 

As with all applications in S/21, setup is critical.  
It is not a one step process.

We just setup a new DRP Network to supply our Cranston facility with
products manufactured at our remote Mexicali stockroom.   The 2
stockrooms are "SF" in Cranston to be supplied by "SQ" in Mexicali.
The basic steps are:
 1. Create SF as a Depot (3/OEM)
 2. Create periods for SF using the 02 Calendar (2/DRM)
        Note: Calendars should already be set up from 1/DRM. 
 3. Create Stockroom SF as a Center/DC (3/DRM)
 4. Create a new Customer for the receiving location with sequences of
"000' an "001" (1/ARM-2/OEM)  We called ours "CRANRECV".
 5. Update the SF Stockroom to have "CRANRECV" as a Customer link
(4/DRM)
 6. Created a Planner code 7005 for Mexicali Planner (7/DRM)
 7. Create a the Network "S1" for Mexicali (SQ) to Cranston Receiving
(SF) (5/DRM)
 8. Set up Item Profiles (6/DRM) 
        On this one, be sure to press "F1" for HELP, and read and
understand all of the possible "Order Policy Codes.  This will affect
the quantity to be requested from your supply source on a replenishment
order based on Safety Stock, Minimum and fixed order quantities.

After your setups, you can process your DRP run using the following
options:
 1/DRP  to Evaluate the demand. (Again read the HELP to understand the
options)
 3/RQP  Create Requisitions from DRP
 32/RQP  Create Distribution Orders

Be aware that DRP will also request Requisitions for Purchase Orders,
but it will only evaluate Items that you set up with DRP Item Profiles

When a DRP order is created it will show as "On-Order"(3.INE) in the
Receiving Depot Location.

DRP Orders created are treated similar to Customer Orders for
allocations (8/OEP, 9/OEP, and 10/OER), Pick Notes (2/OER) and
dispatching (10/OEP). 

After a DRP Order Item is dispatched, the quantity will show as
"In-Transit" (3/INE) and a Plus transaction to "Intransit Adj." will be
logged to inventory 4/INE, for the Receiving Depot Location

Receipt of DRP Orders is done with 7/DRP.  This will reduce "In-Transit"
Quantity (3/INE) and create a Negative transaction to "Intransit Adj.",
and a Positive transaction to "Transfer-In" to Stock, for the Receiving
Depot Location.

You will find that it works very well with lots of visibility throughout
S/21. 

Please feel free to email me if you have any other questions.

Charlie,
I have seen it work fine in a number of environments.  Those who have
slammed it, I felt, had too high expectations of what an DRP package
could
do.

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

Thanks.
