The webinar will cover how the Forecast Gross Requirements can be published in Ultriva so the suppliers can view their information in the Ultriva portal – eliminating the need to send spreadsheets on a regular basis. Attendees will learn how Ultriva can be utilized for the MRP firm orders generated by the ERP system, allowing for the consolidation of supplier demand and fulfillment activities into one common system.
In the supply chain, forecasts represent components and purchased parts. For those parts which are dual or multi-sourced Ultriva automatically distributes the gross requirements based on the defined percent split for that particular part or component.
MRP planned orders are replenishment orders suggested during the MRP run. Normally these planned orders need an approval from the buyers prior to becoming purchasing order (PO) that can be sent to suppliers. Ultriva allows these plans to be loaded whenever the MRP is run. Buyers can use the interactive tools to process approval and release of PO’s to suppliers.
MRP orders are firm orders generated by MRP, shared in real-time with suppliers. Ultriva provides an electronic way to share MRP firm orders with suppliers via the Collaborative Supply Portal.
