Introduction to Manufacturing Inventory Requirements Planning Overview

Posted by Gerry Poe


INTRODUCTION:

Manufacturing Material (Inventory) Requirements Planning (MRP) - an APICS Review; is a discussion of a major functional system, MRP, within most ERP software products. MRP operates as if it is your onboard Materials and Resource Management Ph.D. MRP is a system that knows all and tells all. That is, of course, what it can only know are data within your database included for calculations determining your gross and net requirements for materials and resources. If data are external to the system, they are excluded. You are encouraged to use your ERP system fully to gain the most value.

MRP Benefits:

  • Reduced Inventory with fewer (to no) shortages
  • Improved Customer Service
  • Improved Direct Labor Productivity
  • Reduced Purchasing Cost
  • Reduced Traffic Cost
  • Reduced Obsolescence
  • Reduced Overtime
  • Correct numbers to run the business
  • Accountability throughout the organization
  • Improved Quality of Life
