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

wip inventories  the required quantities of WIP and finished products, and that no inventories are created unnecessarily. Master Production scheduling (MPS) is important because it calculates the time required to make finished products as per orders from raw, sourced, and WIP materials and so the delivery dates are determined from the lead times in processing materials on different work centers. In today''s manufacturing both accurate delivery dates and optimizing resources are equally important. For this, good software Read More
