JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning from Oracle provides a means for you to use resource planning tools in distribution or manufacturing environments. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning enables you to use supply and demand balancing logic to create material schedules and detailed production plans that support single-facility or multifacility planning.
With JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning, you can:
Generate demand projections that you use as input for the planning and scheduling systems.
Use capacity planning to ensure that sufficient capacity is available to accomplish the planned production schedule.
Generate a distribution or production plan for one facility.
Produce a single-facility Material Requirements Planning (MRP) schedule for a single item or all items.
Compare prospective resource requirements to the capacity that is available in critical work centers.
Forecast consumption across multiple time periods.
Set up and generate multilevel master schedules.
Process work orders with a batch quantity that corresponds to a batch bill of material and use these orders for MRP processing.
Set up and use process planning by defining stocking types for the process, defining co-products and by-products, and generate Master Production Scheduling (MPS) for the process.
Use repetitive manufacturing for highly repetitive production that relies on a production rate.
Set up and maintain multifacility plans to define facility relationships at any level of detail for an entire facility, a product group, master planning family, or an individual item number.
Set up information for each of the suppliers and for the items that you are planning to purchase to generate ad hoc schedules interactively or generate them by running the Supplier Schedule Generation program.
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning system integrates with these JD Edwards EnterpriseOne systems from Oracle:
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Inventory Management
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Configurator
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Forecast Management
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Shop Floor Management
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Sales Order Management
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Engineer to Order
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning system works with other JD Edwards EnterpriseOne systems. We discuss integration considerations in the implementation chapters in this implementation guide.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Inventory Management from Oracle supplies the basic information about each item (or ingredient), such as part number, description, unit of measure, stocking type, and location.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Configurator from Oracle supplies information for assemble-to-order and make-to-order items.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Forecast Management from Oracle generates sales projections that are used to create demand and develop the master production schedule.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Shop Floor Management from Oracle uses the output from requirements planning as the basis for work order creation and to schedule work activity within the plant.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Sales Order Management from Oracle provides a source of demand for purchased or manufactured items.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement from Oracle uses expected deliver dates and recommends replenishment actions.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Engineer to Order from Oracle supplies information for engineer-to-order and project specific items.
This section provides an overview of the steps that are required to implement the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning system.
In the planning phase of the implementation, take advantage of all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne sources of information, including the installation guides and troubleshooting information.
When determining which electronic software updates (ESUs) to install for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning, use the EnterpriseOne and World Change Assistant. EnterpriseOne and World Change Assistant, a Java-based tool, reduces the time required to search and download ESUs by 75 percent or more and enables you to install multiple ESUs at one time.
