Material Requirement Planning
Proper management of materials makes manufacturing process efficient as it helps in
stocking the required raw material, achieving the production targets and on-time deliveries
of customer orders. Acceasy's Material Resources Planning (MRP) allows you to achieve all
this on real time basis.
MRP also assists in the overall process of managing materials. MRP ensures proper
management of the materials for any given production job in ways that are essential to keep
the production going as per schedules and without any excessive or diminishing inventories that
are either way harmful to the business. You can check the status of all necessary materials at
any given time, so that you could more accurately plan and execute daily manufacturing
An MRP system is intended to simultaneously meet three objectives:
Key Features :
1) Improved on-time Production
Manufacturing organization using MRP should be able to achieve on-time production because no delays for lack of raw materials. On-time completion helps improve customer service and profitability.
2) Reduced inventories
Inventory falls - typically by 20-35 per cent - because raw materials are not ordered when needed.
3) Capacity requirements planning data
Work center capacity requirements can be planned for many periods into the future.
4) Improved labour productivity
Fewer shortages means significantly less lost time and less disruption to production.
5) Improved productivity of support staff
MRP assists the procurement staff to ensure timely deliveries of raw materials
6) Total business planning
MRP allows you to take total command of planning to production, which means it allows you to effectively plan and deliver when needed that in turn results in increase of staff efficiency and higher profits.
