Exercise d)
Develop an MRP record, similar to the one in figure 7, for wheat germ for the five weeks of
August. Wheat germ must be ordered in bulk-container quantities, so the planned orders must
be multiples of 2,000 pounds. Use a lead time of one week and an initial on-hand inventory of
3,184 pounds, assume that an order of 8,000 pounds is scheduled for receipt during Week 1.
Are there any weeks when you, as a planner, would consider planning an order above or below
the minimum required? Why? (Assume that there are no problems with storage capacity or
shelf life)
