Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

and software  with many production planning and scheduling software vendors is that their software is unable to identify the bottlenecks in the process. Because of this, work centers downstream from a work center that is a bottleneck may be idle for want of work, and those work centers that are upstream may be clogged with inventory. So in terms of MRP and MPS, the MRP should be run first to determine exact quantities of required WIP materials against the quantities of required finished products. From the capacities Read More
