Material Requirement Calculation

In Asprova, the required quantity of items can be calculated and the input time from the manufacturing time to setup time can be moved. This article will explain how to register the requirement and time settings.

In the Integrated Master Editor, when producing item “AX”, we need 1 item of the Resource/Item “A”.


In the Order Table, order “1” has been set so as to produce 10 items of “AX” by 15:00 on June 5th.


Run the reschedule button to see that the order “1” is assigned at the Resource Gantt chart.


Go to the Inventory Graph by right clicking the table, go to Drilldown, then Inventory Graph.


The initial inventory of “A” is 0 and is reduced to -10 when order “1” starts. This means that 10 items of “A” have been used by the start time of order “1”.


To see the consumption change, go to the Integrated Master Editor and adjust the Production to 1.5 and reschedule it.


In the Resource Gantt chart, the consumption of “A” changes to 15.


Now, set 1.5 as Setup and 0 as Production. Run the reschedule button.


You will see that 15 items of “A” have been used when the setup of order “1” starts instead of start of production.
