APICS, in partnership with the APICS Chicago chapter, is pleased to offer the Principles and Practices of MRP Seminar. This seminar is designed to assist beginning as well as experienced planners using a materials requirements planning (MRP) system to acquire a firm understanding of the principles and functions of MRP. The seminar begins with a definition of planning in the manufacturing environment and then proceeds to a full discussion of MRP basics, MRP logic, detail capacity requirements planning (CRP), and daily management with MRP. The seminar includes an in-depth review of the role and activities performed by the MRP planner. Performance measurements used to determine the effectiveness of the MRP in priority management are also discussed. The seminar concludes with the finalization of the MRP plan that supports the inventory objectives of the tactical and strategic plans of the business.
