  • Master Planning - The Master plan calculates net requirements. It's based on actual current orders and enables companies to control inventory replenishment on a short-term, day-to-day basis. Another term often used is the Net requirements plan.
  • Forecast Planning - The Forecast schedule calculates gross requirements. It's based on future projections (or forecasts) and enables companies to conduct long-term planning of materials and capacity.
  • Intercompany master planning - The Intercompany master plan calculates net requirements across legal entities. It connects demand and supply between companies not only for short-term, firm demand and supply, but also for long-term, planned but not yet firmed demand and supply.
