April 13, 2017 @ 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM EDT$499
MRP is often referred to as “The Great Enabler” because it allows for large lot sizes, poor yields, and long lead times by planning for those allowances. While it is true that an MRP software system does not encourage LEAN concepts, the reality is that we can effectively implement LEAN initiatives in such a way as to create a successful marriage of the two techniques. In this fashion, MRP retains its role as a planning tool while LEAN provides for the execution on the shop floor.
