Families and Groupings is essential to an organization in a demand-driven environment and serves as input to Material Requirements Planning (MRP). SYSPRO Inventory Families and Groupings provides the tools to arrange 'collections' of stock keeping units (SKUs) into families and groupings of similar items. These collections provide a high-level view of items at which sales forecasts can be produced and the quality of the forecast measured. A significant feature is the ability to group warehouses for purposes of forecasting at a regional or territory level for logistical or supply chain purposes. There is also the feature for forecasts to be generated at a brand level to facilitate a clearer marketing picture.
