            Material Requiremnts plan and master schedule (MRP) answers two quisitions:

            1. How mauch you need to supply (Make/Buy).

            2. How much resource Hours needed to produce.

            MRP is an unconstrained, and infinite planning engine. this means, if you have a demand (Sales order/Forecast), the planning engine recommend actions to be done based on demand due date only regardless of capacity or material availability, and it gives you exception messages to take action; as a planner; regarding anything that may violate satisfying the demand in that due dates.
