Can MRP be used with many thousands of items?

MRP is a big time saver and should never be perceived as an upkeep burden. At a minimum, only two settings are needed to drive the system - the item Lead Days and Job Days. Significant efficiency gains can be made by entering a monthly forecast and Supply Days setting against items with predictable demand. That is MRP setup in a nutshell.

Daily MRP generation takes very little time and is largely automatic. Manual planning is vastly more complicated and time consuming and must use similar settings and logic to make any sense. So it is much easier to use the formal settings supplied by MRP and let the software do all the work and provide superior results.

MRP works for any company, no matter the size. In fact, the more items you have, the more you need MRP to automate the process.
