MRP is a three-letter abbreviation that is always used in conjunction with manufacturing — so what exactly is it?
It also has the added benefit of letting you know when to buy raw materials to meet your manufacturing commitments. Step 1: Understand Your Manufacturing Processes This first step involves taking a look at your business processes and what your manufacturing flows are. You need to be able to answer questions about when you manufacture your product, what triggers the process and how you manufacture.
Step 3: Setup your Product Data Setup the product data you need; This will include your raw materials and your manufactured product.
You need to know what your manufacturing flows are. You should be able to define and describe the type of manufacturing you do.
Make sure to document all your responses and processes. Limiting your scope reduces your risk and makes it simpler to prototype and test. If your initial process implementation is successful, then expand the prototyping to include additional processes. Basic Manufacturing Concepts and Processes There are generally the two main processes that trigger when you manufacture a product. They are as follows: 1.
The product is manufactured specifically for that customer. There is no stock held in a warehouse or shop. Your business may use either one or a combination of these processes. To support the above processes you also need to ensure that you have the right raw materials in stock at the right time to be able to manufacture.
Example Scenario Each manufacturing business will be different, so for demonstration purposes we will use an example scenario. Example Scenario: Manufacturing Tables A carpenter runs a business making tables. To make one table he uses 5 pieces of wood, 20 nails and a bottle of varnish. The completed table is then put in his shop, ready to sell to customers passing by. He likes to keep a minimum of five completed, ready to sell tables in his shop.
The Bill of Materials is the list of raw materials or list of ingredients required to make our manufactured product. In the previous step we created the products, now we need to define the relationship between the table and its raw materials. This is done using the BOM. These are the individual steps that are needed to turn the raw materials into a finished product.
The tasks required to manufacture our table need to be performed in the following sequence: 1. Cut wood 2. Nail wood together 3. Sand table 4. Of the to be ordered, 25 of the pieces will be allocated to the manufacture of our minimum stock of five tables, and would leave us with 75 pieces in stock.
Find the following entry as shown in Figure We have the choice of whether to act on it or not. Each manufacturing job, batch, or run is done based on a production run. By creating a production run for the tables, OFBiz is telling you that more tables need to be made. A screen similar to Figure 27 will be displayed. The Production Run details show the routing tasks, manufacturing steps and also the list of materials to be used.
By default all raw materials are removed from stock in conjunction with starting the the first routing task. So, before we can start this manufacturing production run we need to buy more raw materials. A Purchase Order is a document used to order things from a supplier. This detail will now be used to generate a Purchase Order to that supplier. This is where you enter the number of products that have been manufactured by the production run.
It has successfully provided us with the information that we wanted. MRP recommends when to manufacture products based on low stock levels and also when to order raw materials from suppliers to meet a commitment to manufacture. We: 1. Identified the main processes of a manufacturing business 2. Setup the raw materials and manufactured product 3. Ran the MRP program and reviewed the report 5. Reviewed the requirements proposed by MRP 6.
Approved the manufacturing requirement and automatically created a production run 7. Approved the raw materials requirements and generated a purchase order to the supplier 8. Received the raw materials into the warehouse and made them available to use in our manufacturing process 9. Ran the Production Run and made five tables At the end of the production run, we entered five manufactured tables into stock, ready to sell to customers. We welcome your feedback on this document.

OFBiz can also be configured to support more complex manufacturing and assembling processes.
