More Help Thread: Question 14 MRP Internet Search Post: Question 14 MRP Internet Search Author: Posted Date: February 10, 2016 6:53 PM Status: Published Search the Internet for a consulting company offering MRP services or a company that practices it. Provide the Web site address and briefly describe the operations. Website: http :// rockfordconsulting .com/index. htm Brief Description: Rockford Consulting offers a portfolio of inventory consulting services. MRP is one of the options, as this company specializes in manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain management consulting. The goal is for the company to help clients reduce delivery time and costs, as well as to implement processes that streamline the manufacturing. In the MRP process, a schedule is set and forecasts are combined with customer orders. The data process “explodes” the data into bills of material so that the requirements for each component are clearly denoted. The ends up in a feedback loop that will require management to adjust the capacity or the schedule. This consulting company does not recommend MRP in practice, because, according to the website, it has been proven ineffective. The practice of MRP as it was developed in the 1970s tends to assume no constraints and a supremely accurate lead time forecast and database architecture. While the practice can be used for general forecast, Lean processes and Kanban systems were more recommended. Rockford Consulting does offer ERP consulting services, another topic of discussion this week, along with Agile Manufacturing techniques, supply chain management, business process re­engineering, logistics consulting and other Sue Smithee
