Implementation of MRP Mission The Problems Production Purchasing Purpose SWOT Analysis Order Winners and Order Qualifiers Analysis MPS schedules Recommendations Conclusion

Class Question 1 What does MRP stand for and what is the purpose of it? Company Background Produces a line of automotive electrical components Serves about 75 auto parts suppliers and car dealers Recently installed an MRP system Should help company secure a competitive edge Companys 2 most profitable products: 1. Automotive front sidelamp 2. Automotive front headlamp

MRP system: Material Requirement Planning Method for the effective planning of all resources of a manufacturing company Implementation of MRP System As soon as MRP system was implemented: Hopeful it would give them a competitive edge over their competition 1 year later: Inventory levels had not dropped as expected Overtime levels had not dropped as expected Customer service was getting worse Too many complains about late shipments

Goal: Find out what is going wrong with the MRP system Our Mission write a manual MRP explosion for the sideand headlamps for the next six weeks identify the good and bad points of MRP implementation Flashy Flashers types of action notices that should be made for order releases and adjusting priorities making suggestions for change Company Problems Complaints about late shipments No formal system of priority planning which is creating scheduling problems on the shop floor Experiencing too many stock-outs of

purchased parts Marketing is taking last minute orders for favorite customers Production Problems Production varies from week to week Inventory records are often incorrect Capacity plans are effected by often having to produce more than planned Purchasing Problems Buyers are frustrated with the new system because there is no time for creative buying Almost all time is spent trying to follow up on late orders Problems with unreliable vendor lead

times which is the cause for carrying more safety stock than necessary for Purpose Provide data to develop the MRP records for the two products of Flashy Flashers, Inc Find the causes of the implementation problems experienced by the company Realize the value of action noticed in the operation of an MRP system SWOT Analysis of MRP Strengths Increases visibility for future facility

expansions Determines the exact amount of inventory necessary to meet production demand Provides managers with control over execution system Provides customers with accurate order delivery dates

Can identify shortages within inventory levels Helps managers schedule work crews to meet the needs of the manufacturing process without overstaffing Determines the ideal lot sizes that should be purchased of each component item or raw material

Weaknesses Does not lend to optimize materials acquisition costs Inventory levels are kept to a minimum which means materials must be purchased more frequently and in smaller quantities which increases order costs Firm is less likely to qualify for large volume discounts Because information needs to be accurate, inaccurate information can result in misplanning, overstock, understock, or lack of appropriate resources Can be costly and time consuming to set up

SWOT Analysis of MRP Opportunities Threats More streamline buying patterns Employees unfamiliar with new system, which could cause human error Inventory levels can drop to meet accurate production needs without overstocking Unreliable lead times can occur which

would cause inaccurate delivery dates and unsatisfied customers Scheduling workers accurately in order to not over staff Last minute orders can cause difficulties when meeting production requirements Increase customer satisfaction Decrease complaints about late shipments The data must be accurate for orders to be placed in sync with production scheduling of products or this can

cause shortages or surpluses of products in inventory Competitive Advantage and Priorities Order-Qualifiers Order-Winners Help? Help? Class Question 2 What does MPS stand for and what is its purpose? MPS

MPS: Master Production Schedule A time-phased plan specifying how many and when the firm plans to build each end item TABLE C12.2 Master Production Schedule The following data show the MPS start dates ITEM DESCRIPTION AND MPS PART NUMBER QUANTITY START DATE Sidelamp (SL100E) 100 Week 13 80 Week 15 110 Week 16 Headlamp (HL200E) 120 Week 14

SL123A (1) SL132P (1) SL133F (1) SL134P (1) Recommendations 1. Stabilize the master production schedule so that new orders are not inserted into the schedule with less than normal lead times 2. Synchronize the operations in the shop with the

material planners so that priorities are valid Will require updating priorities as they change such as schedule dates of components needed 3. Train all employees who provide information to the MRP system and employees who are the primary users of the MRP information in addition to those who must update the system Everybody should be aware of the need for accurate and timely date
