MRP Concept in SAP

MRP is the planning tool in SAP which will look at all aspects of a material and is highly based upon the master data of the material.
MRP looks at current inventory, current requirements, and open purchase requisition/orders and so on. So if a material is required to satisfy a sales order and there is no inventory, MRP will create a planned order if the item is to be produced in house. This planned order can then be converted to a production order by the master scheduler.

If the item is to be procured, then MRP will create a purchase requisition which the Buyer will convert to a purchase order. This is just one scenario, the system is highly configurable and will do pretty much whatever you tell based on config and master data. Read more
