Maintaining Valid Priorities
Date: Friday, April 22, 2016
There is an old saying that in manufacturing you can have the best material plan in the world at 7:59 AM on Monday morning, but as soon as production starts at 8:00 AM the plan starts to fall apart. It is true, and the causes are the many items that can affect the validity of the plan.
This webinar explains the factors that can affect the Material Requirements Plan (MRP) plan. Then we look at how MRP responds to these changes. Finally we review the action messages MRP creates suggesting actions the planners need to take to maintain valid priorities.
From this webinar you’ll learn:
- Factors affecting the material plan
- How MRP responds to changes
- MRP action messages and how to use them
