Are You an IBP Shop or an MRP Shop?

IBP Is Not an All-or-Nothing Solution

Contrary to popular belief, integrated business planning (IBP) versus material requirements planning (MRP) is not an “either-or” choice. It is an “and” choice; both can work seamlessly together. It is entirely possible—even desirable—to be both an IBP and an MRP shop. Put simply, MRP is a process (and SAP functionality) to balance demand and unconstrained supply, to better facilitate procurement and production requirements and execution. IBP is a longterm planning process that incorporates cross functional inputs to develop a consensus forward looking plan. It is also an SAP advanced planning or decision support solution, modularized into activity areas. MRP and IBP can work in synchronicity, providing agility that improves forecast planning and on-time delivery when implemented correctly.
