Enterprise 21’s DRP process uses customer demand in the form of sales orders and forecasts, inventory levels and associated replenishment methodologies, and supplier information including lead times and purchase order requirements. Through the DRP process, Enterprise 21 calculates expected inventory levels over time and generates purchase requisitions with appropriate time offsets to meet future projected inventory shortfalls. Buyers and material planners can review the purchase requisitions and automatically generate the necessary purchase orders and intercompany transfers to support the organization’s inventory plan.

For multi-facility organizations, Enterprise 21’s DRP process can be used for centralized purchasing, facility-based purchasing, or as a combination of these methodologies. Enterprise 21’s distribution software functionality allows distributors to meet their inventory planning requirements while effectively managing inventory carrying costs.
