Is there any way to run MRP without looking at production orders and sales orders?

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of MRP?

    The question was brought up and thought of asking :)
    Our team is wanting MRP to "only" look at forecast vs inventory in order to suggest or create purchase orders. Do you know any other way to do this?
    I'm not too familiar with MRP, we haven't use it since we started with Nav.

    By Default it is not possible. But you can add or change some Code to make it possible. In BC14 the Demand is handled by CU99000854. In this Codeunit is a function called DemandToInvtProfile. You can catch the Event OnBeforeDemandToInvProfile in this codeunit and set the IsHandeled Parameter to true (maybe depend on Item Setting). That would solve your request. Some use this to handle/plan Bulk Goods.

    Sorry, I just saw your request is for GP, my suggestions is for BC.

    I think you shouldn't customise this on any level instead you should train the users how to use it.
