Material Requirements Planning (MRP) Guide
This guide helps to determine gross and net requirements of materials considering
- Bill of Materials (BoM)
- Lead time for offsetting
- Netting of available inventory
Bill of Materials (BoM) - Preparation of BoM is the first important step in MRP plan generation. Following is description of BoM
- Material A is a sub-assembly or finished good i.e. end product
- A needs 1 unit of material B and 1 unit of material C
- Material B needs 1 unit of material D and 2 units of material E
- Materials A, C, D & E take 1 week
- Material B needs 2 weeks
The BoM is as shown below
100 and 200 As are required in week 5 and 6, respectively.
Assuming no inventory is available the MRP table and calculations are setup as shows below
Step 1: Generate requirement of material A considering no available ...
