Why do you need to buy MRP software? – 21st June 2017

The basic functions of an MRP system include Inventory control, bill of material processing and scheduling.  MRP helps manufacturing businesses to maintain low inventory levels as well as helping to plan manufacturing, purchasing and delivery activities.

Every manufacturing business faces the same daily demands of their customers.  The demand of wanting products to be available in a shorter time than it takes to make them – so some level of planning is required to meet these demands.

It is imperative that companies control the types and quantities of material they purchase, plan which products are to be produced and in what quantities to ensure that they are able to meet current and future customer demand, all at the lowest possible cost for both you and your customer.

Making a bad decision in any of these areas will make your company lose money.

Why MRP Production Control Software? – 14th November 2016

The scope of MRP in manufacturing.

In 1983, Oliver Wight developed MRP into manufacturing resource planning (MRP II). In the 1980s, Joe Orlicky’s MRP evolved into Oliver Wight’s manufacturing resource planning (MRP II) which brings master scheduling, rough-cut capacity planning, capacity requirements planning, SOP in 1983 and other concepts to classical MRP. By 1989, about one third of the software industry was MRP II software sold to American industry ($1.2 billion worth of software).

MRP is not a new concept, what is new is the availability of MRP Production Control Software to all manufacturing businesses. MRP Software no longer is just for the big boys!

Which MRP System should we choose? – 7th November 2016

Material requirements planning (MRP) is a production planning, scheduling, and inventory control system used to manage manufacturing processes.

Prior to MRP, and before computers dominated industry, reorder point (ROP)/reorder-quantity (ROQ) type methods like EOQ (economic order quantity) had been used in manufacturing and inventory management.

In 1964, as a response to the Toyota Manufacturing Program, Joseph Orlicky developed material requirements planning (MRP). The first company to use MRP was Black & Decker in 1964, with Dick Alban as project leader. By 1975, MRP was implemented in 700 companies. This number had grown to about 8,000 by 1981.

Today an MRP System is essential in this every changing, ever demanding manufacturing sector. Without one, you will not remain competitive, efficient, ISO compliant and more importantly profitable!
