pMRP (predictive MRP)
S4200 Unit 4 Lesson 4
Successor of classic ERP “Long-term planning”, but not with identical functionality

Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling
S4200 Unit 5 Lesson 3
PP/DS is used for short-term planning with exact times in the production plant for both in-house production and external procurement

Process Order
Operations describe the different steps required during the production process. For a more detailed description of these steps, operations are assigned phases.
Exactly one resource is assigned to an operation. At the same time, the resource assignment applies for all phases assigned to the operation.

Phases are used for scheduling, determining capacity requirements, and costing. The dates and capacity requirements for operations are derived from the corresponding phases.
Operations and phases can be assigned secondary resources, if required. The same business transactions can be executed for secondary resources as for phases. Secondary resources can, for example, be included in scheduling, capacity requirements planning, and costing.
Confirmations are entered for phases and secondary resources (however, not for operations)

You can release an individual phase, operation, a whole order, or several orders together.

Repetitive Manufacturing
S4200 Unit 9 Lesson 1

You can use different options to plan line loading (dispatching planned orders to production lines = production versions) including the following:
Automatic selection of the production line in the Material Requirements Planning (MRP) run:
If several lines are available, the system assigns the first line it finds.
MRP run with quota arrangement:
If several production lines are available, you can use quota arrangements to distribute the quantity among the alternative lines. You could carry out postprocessing with a planning table.
Repetitive Manufacturing (REM) planning table or Production Planning/ Detailed Scheduling PP/DS product planning table:
In contrast to the aforementioned methods, quantities are manually scheduled on the available lines.
