|MRP area (PP-MRP)|
An MRP area represents an organizational unit for which you can perform material requirements planning separately.
An MRP area can include one or several storage locations of a plant or a subcontractor. You can define MRP areas in a plant.
By defining MRP areas, you can perform MRP for each area. This means the right quantity of materials can be provided on time for each area, such as a production line, a storage location for spare parts, or subcontractor stock.
MRP areas are transferred to SAP APO as locations.
