Course Overview

Material requirements planning (MRP) is a system used to avoid situations where parts are missing. It establishes a schedule (priority plan) showing the components required at each level of the assembly and, based on lead times, calculates the time when these components will be needed.

This course will address the principles of production planning and inventory control using the best practices in modern manufacturing theories and practices. Participants will gain greater appreciation to the benefits of positioning their operations and optimise the value from the supply chain. Participants will gain appreciation and develop their own creative solutions in areas such as implementation of company-wide measurement and control systems, addressing inventory reduction challenge without compromising customer satisfaction.

Objective:

This course is designed to teach skills in the planning & control of production for improved sectional & organizational effectiveness. Experiential learning cycles will be used to ensure maximum benefit to participants.

     On completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Improve production planning techniques
  • Improve process schedule
  • Improve job planning & control
  • Improve productivity & problem solving techniques
