A graphic saying What is MRP

What is MRP?

Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) is a system for tracking and controlling manufacturing operations, such as inventory management, purchasing, financial resources, and every step of the manufacturing process.

Material Requirements Planning (MRP or MRP I) is software that tracks customer orders, defines needed materials, schedules purchasing, plans production, and manages inventory.

MRP manages the inventory needed for production scheduling to have the necessary materials on hand for on-time fulfillment.

MRP II is a broad-based system that plans all aspects of production, including forecasting, costing and integration with an accounting software system.

MRP software and MRP II systems are often used by the small or medium-sized manufacturer.
