Synopses & Reviews
Understanding customer needs and providing a quality product at a profit should be the ultimate goal of any small business, but limited resources can be stifling. Written for small businesses new to the idea of Materials Requirements Planning (MRP), MRP and Beyond shows how implementation of an integrated management system is key to optimizing the use of critical financial resources, which can mean the difference between success and bankruptcy for many small businesses. MRP and Beyond details how the process works using actual case examples and illustrates how this planning tool and other planning tools, including CRP, MRP II, JIT and TQM can fit into the development of a strategic manufacturing excellence plan for a small business. Topics include: Improved customer service; Better on-time delivery; Reduced inventory and higher productivity; Revenue growth and improved profits.
