Bottom Up Replanning (BURP)

In MRP, the process of using pegging data to solve material availability and/or problems. This process is accomplished by the planner (not the computer system), who evaluates the effects of possible solutions. Potential solutions would include compressing lead times, cutting order quantity, substituting material, and changing the master schedule. It is a manual intervention that seeks a solution at the lowest possible level in the MRP to protect stability of the schedule.
