Manufacturing Resource Planning
The M.R.P.II is a method of resource planning used by Silcon Plastic Ltd: it’s based on a management computerized system which provides a feasible and realistic production plan.
The M.R.P. II is the evolution of the old M.R.P., from which we get information regarding the production life cycles, production orders and manufacturing bills of materials (B.O.M.).
The database enables a finite capacity analysis which is necessary for production’s planning and raw materials’ requirement, and it also takes into consideration the workforce and the machinery availability.
