Sales and Operations Planning Part One: Identifying and Forecasting Demand
An effective sales and operations planning game plan results in fewer stock-outs, shorter delivery lead-times, higher on-time shipping percentages, a manageable

mrp forecasting techniques  replenishment method based on MRP logic. Other Sources of Demand Visibility of all demands is critical to formulating an effective S&OP game plan. Surprise demands can cause shortages that impact customer service or production and result in expediting. Some sources of demand may need interpretation or alternative ways to express the demand, as illustrated in the following examples. Customer Schedules . Customer schedules represent a combination of sales orders (in the near-term) and forecast (in the Read More...
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

mrp forecasting techniques  companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that certain. Thus, many ERP systems are employing heuristics, algorithms, and even simulations to estimate the uncertainty in demand and effects of constraints on the shop floor. Understanding these variations then Read More...
The Essential Supply Chain
Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise

mrp forecasting techniques  employ some flavor of MRP (Material Requirements Planning) or MRP-II (Manufacturing Resources Planning) for internal supply chain planning. The problem with these traditional planning methodologies is their sequential nature, which makes them unable to consider multiple constraints simultaneously. For example, a plan that begins with a demand forecast can be used to generate product requirements for the manufacturing facilities, which can then be checked against available material and capacity. However, Read More...
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial
Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the

mrp forecasting techniques  (master production schedule) and MRP planned orders are pushed out to the factory floor and in stock. External suppliers also work to support planned production, while materials management often relies on maintaining sufficient inventory, using a make-to-stock (MTS) rather than make-to-order (MTO) or assemble-to-order (ATO) approach. In traditional manufacturing, the time and cost of changeover to produce different products is high, as are the costs of inventory, planning, and expediting. To recap, in Read More...
Using Visibility to Manage Supply Chain Uncertainty
Technology has advanced supply chain visibility beyond mere track and trace functions. Visibility can be used to manage supply chain uncertainty, thereby

mrp forecasting techniques  when manufacturing resource planning (MRP) forecast modeling was first introduced to identify constraints. The eighties brought constraint based planning, manufacturing requirements planning (MRP-II), distribution requirements planning (DRP), electronic data interchange (EDI), and track and trace. Enter the nineties with enterprise resource planning (ERP), advanced planning and scheduling (APS), and the Internet. Today, we delve into continuous loop manufacturing, peer-to-peer computing, service oriented Read More...
