MRP vs. ERP Software: Which is Right for You?

    Email | Print

    According to this article on Tech News, MRP or Material Software Planning software is not always the right solution for businesses. For custom products or low-volume production companies, MRP is not a wise investment.

    ERP software, however, is designed to streamline processes and help with accounting, sales, production, logistics, and much more. ERP software is sometimes available as a suite of integrated modules that work together to share information among decision makers so that informed decisions are made.

    1. Existen soluciones de software que complementan a los MRP para resolver sus carencias. Estas soluciones denominadas APS (Advanced Planning & Scheduling) planifican la producción a capacidad finita, aportando beneficios como:
      – Conocimiento de fechas de entrega fiables
      – Menores retrasos
      – Reducción de tiempos de cambio
      – Reducción de inversión en stock en curso
      – Maximización de la facturación en un periodo

    2. A very informative and professional read 🙂

      Personally the way in which ERP allows for integrated modules that work together to share information wins for me.
