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 supply forecasting  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...
