This document provides an overview of using Planning Bills within the Material Planning System and Distribution Requirements Planning (MPS/DRP) planning system. The purpose for planning bills is to generate forecasts for saleable end items. Planning bills are commonly used in a manufacturing environment where the saleable end items have a large number of features and/or options. The forecasts for these saleable end items are based on percentages of the features and options offered that you expect to sell.

Planning bills consist of groups of pseudo items that reflect how an item is sold. They are entered into the system in a Bill of Material format, and represent the variety of possible options and features that might be included as a saleable end item.


Forecasters and planners can benefit from this information.
