Lesson 18 – Materials Requirements PlanningCopyright – Harland E. Hodges, Ph.D 18-118 - 1MRP is a computer based information system for ordering, scheduling, and managing dependent demand inventory requirementsLesson 18Material Requirements Planning (MRP)End ProductE(1)18 - 2End ProductIndependent Versus Dependent DemandIndependent Demand - demand at the customer end product level Dependent Demand -demand for items that are subassemblies, component parts or raw materials to be used in the production of end productsE(1)18 - 3Independent DemandAB(4)C(2)D(2) E(1)D(3)F(2)Dependent DemandIndependent demand is uncertainDependent demand is certainIndependent Versus Dependent DemandLesson 18 – Materials Requirements PlanningCopyright – Harland E. Hodges, Ph.D 18-218 - 4“ I don’t know how we managed to get along without MRP for as long as wedid. Our scheduling has gone from a state of turmoil to relative calm. We have achieved a substantial reduction in inventory size and cost while increasing our customer service. We are more than satisfied with MRP; it allows to plan rather than spend all our time trying to meet one crisis after another. I would strongly recommend that all manufacturing firms adopt MRP or some similar approach”.Positive View Of MRP18 - 5“We had heard so many good things about MRP that we couldn’t wait to get started, but so far, it seems like we’ve just been spinning our wheels. We’re not even close to going online with it, and yet we’ve already exceeded our original time estimates and costs are out of sight. Everyone is discouraged, especially the brass. There is even some talk of just scrapping the whole idea”Negative View Of MRP18 - 6Materials Requirements Planning is a a computer based information system designed to handle ordering and scheduling of dependent demand inventory requirements . It . Takes into account lead times, and. Develops a production plan showing quantity and timing for materials, component parts and subassemblies from the first component to the lastMaterials Requirement Planning - MRPAs you have learned or will learn in your information systems class, information systems are only as good as the input data. Two of the most prevalent reasons for MRP failure are . Lack of planning for implementation. GIGOLesson 18 – Materials Requirements PlanningCopyright – Harland E.

It shows when the end product is needed but does not show when raw materials, components, subassemblies or parts are needed.Master Production SchedulePlanning Period 12345678Forecast 30 30 30 30 40 40 40 40Customer Orders 33 20 10 4 2Projected Demand 33 30 30 30 40 40 40 40Projected On Hand Inventory 64 31 1 41 11 41 1 31 61Master Production Schedule (MPS) 70 70 70 70Lesson 18 – Materials Requirements PlanningCopyright – Harland E.
