Narrative (see also Graphic):

Step Description
1. The buyer run Material Requirements Planning (MRP) process. Buyer nets MRP data to generate a replenishment plan and determine whether replenishment is required during the current planning cycle.
2. If replenishment is required, buyer first has to determine if the blanket order can cover the requirements. If the blanket order is for a fixed quantity or dollars, the quantity-left-to-receive or dollars-left-to-receive must exceed the quantity or dollar value of the replenishment quantity. If the blanket order is for a fixed date range, the buyer must ensure that the blanket order is not about to expire. If the blanket order will not cover the replenishment, buyer must invoke Order Model 3 - Blanket Order, Forecast-based, to either change the existing Blanket Order, or generate a new Blanket Order.
3. If the blanket order will not cover the replenishment, buyer must invoke Order Model 2 - Blanket Order, to either change the existing Blanket Order, or generate a new Blanket Order.
4. If the current blanket order covers the replenishment, the buyer can "release" the requirement systematically. A discrete release will not be generated; instead, the requirement will be marked as "released" in the Material Release Schedule.
5. Buyer generates Material Release Schedule to sends to supplier. Material Release Schedule is typically regenerated weekly. Any changes/exceptions from a previous run are factored into the new generation of the Material Release Schedule.  The seller responds to the Material Release Schedule if needed.
6. Prepare for the next MRP run. If there are changes arising out of a supplier's response to a forecast, they are dealt with during this activity, then the next generation of the forecast starts again with 'Process MRP.'
