S4 HANA MRP LIVE vs Classic MRP
In today’s economy, customer satisfaction is very important. Every supplier wants to deliver his customer at the agreed time. You need a reliable, fast and efficient system to accomplish this, as demand and supplies can change rapidly in between. How nice would it be that an MRP Controller would receive a message on his smartphone if the demand or supply changes. With MRP LIVE this has become reality!

- Match demand and supply more efficiently than was previously possible.
