MRP Fuzzy Pegging Analysis

MRP Fuzzy Pegging Analysis - Planning Values pane

After selecting a part in the MRP Results Listing window, clicking on the Fuzzy Pegging button will open this window.

Fuzzy Pegging is a sort of MRP demand pegging. In conventional pegging the system records the source of all dependant demand for a part through multiple levels. This is an enormously intensive process to add to the MRP processing and would consume considerable database space. As an alternative, Fuzzy Pegging is a presumptive analysis of the demand items that are currently on the system that could be contributing to the demand on the part.

The system carries out a multi-level where used analysis on the selected part and identifies any demand for parent items in the where-used list.

The list interactively operates with the Parts ScratchPad and the Bill of Materials and Where-Used Listings window that can be opened from the Parts ScratchPad Options Menu menu. This window will interactively operate with the Results Listing window. I.E. If you click on a BoM listed part the system will attempt to list the MRP results for that part.
