13-3 MRP and ERP


 Material requirements planning (MRP):

Computer-based information system that
translates master schedule requirements for
end items into time-phased requirements for
subassemblies, components, and raw

Independent and Dependent Demand

B(4) C(2)

D(2) E(1) D(3) F(2)

Independent demand is uncertain.

Dependent demand is certain.
13-5 MRP and ERP

Dependant Demand

 Dependent demand: Demand for items that

are subassemblies or component parts to be
used in production of finished goods.
 Once the independent demand is known,
the dependent demand can be determined.

MPR Inputs

 Master Production Schedule

 Time-phased plan specifying timing and
quantity of production for each end item.
 Material Requirement Planning Process
13-9 MRP and ERP

Master Schedule

Master schedule: One of three primary

inputs in MRP; states which end items are
to be produced, when these are needed,
and in what quantities.
Cumulative lead time: The sum of the lead
times that sequential phases of a process
require, from ordering of parts or raw
materials to completion of final assembly.

Bill of materials (BOM): One of the three primary

inputs of MRP; a listing of all of the raw materials,
parts, subassemblies, and assemblies needed to produce
one unit of a product.

Product structure tree: Visual depiction of the

requirements in a bill of materials, where all
components are listed by levels.

Inventory Records

 One of the three primary inputs in MRP

 Includes information on the status of each
item by time period
 Gross requirements
 Scheduled receipts
 Amount on hand
 Lead times
 Lot sizes
 And more …
13-14 MRP and ERP

MPR Processing

 Gross requirements
 Total expected demand
 Scheduled receipts
 Open orders scheduled to arrive
 Planned on hand
 Expected inventory on hand at the
beginning of each time period
13-15 MRP and ERP

MPR Processing

 Net requirements
 Actual amount needed in each time period
 Planned-order receipts
 Quantity expected to received at the
beginning of the period
 Offset by lead time
 Planned-order releases
 Planned amount to order in each time period
13-16 MRP and ERP

MRP Outputs

 Planned orders - schedule indicating the

amount and timing of future orders.
 Order releases - Authorization for the
execution of planned orders.
 Changes - revisions of due dates or order
quantities, or cancellations of orders.
13-17 MRP and ERP

MRP Secondary Reports

 Performance-control reports
 Planning reports
 Exception reports
13-18 MRP and ERP

Other Considerations

 Safety Stock
 Lot sizing
 Lot-for-lot ordering
 Economic order quantity
 Fixed-period ordering
13-19 MRP and ERP

MRP in Services

 Food catering service

 End item => catered food
 Dependent demand => ingredients for each
recipe, i.e. bill of materials
 Hotel renovation
 Activities and materials “exploded” into
component parts for cost estimation and
13-20 MRP and ERP

Benefits of MRP

 Low levels of in-process inventories

 Ability to track material requirements
 Ability to evaluate capacity requirements
 Means of allocating production time
13-21 MRP and ERP

Requirements of MRP

 Computer and necessary software

 Accurate and up-to-date

 Master schedules
 Bills of materials
 Inventory records

 Integrity of data
13-22 MRP and ERP


 Expanded MRP with emphasis placed

on integration
 Financial planning
 Marketing
 Engineering
 Purchasing
 Manufacturing

 Enterprise resource planning (ERP):

 Next step in an evolution that began with
MPR and evolved into MRPII
 Integration of financial, manufacturing, and
human resources on a single computer
13-25 MRP and ERP

ERP Strategy Considerations

 High initial cost

 High cost to maintain

 Future upgrades

 Training
