Manage Material Requirements Planning Exception Messages in SAP
How to Categorize and Evaluate Exceptions into Plan, Schedule and Inventory Areas
Exceptions generated via material requirement planning (MRP) on the MRP elements should be evaluated daily or, at a minimum, weekly. Managing MRP exception messages effectively at the operational level is an essential business activity because these messages impact operational key performance indicators (KPI). Depending on the organization size and product volumes there could be hundreds or thousands of MRP exception messages. Managing exception messages can be difficult without the planning department following a structured process. Mismanagement could impact the bottom line, which in turn affects customer satisfaction.
