SMEs in the manufacturing industry face many hurdles when keeping up with competitors and maintaining their market position. If they can run as efficiently as possible, their success will only grow, but they must find solutions to overcome challenges with their organisational processes. The introduction of MRP systems (Material Requirements Planning) has helped companies to improve their productivity and overall bottom line. The computer-based software gives companies control over the materials used in manufacturing from managing orders to assessing stock correctly.

Evolution of MRP Systems to ERP Software

While the traditional MRP system initiated an industry transformation, it was ERP systems (Enterprise Resource Planning) which introduced more functions to the software.

The system takes functions from traditional MRP software and incorporates them with other requirements of the manufacturing process such as accountancy (e.g. invoicing, quotations) and personnel data (e.g. performance, attendance). From one central database, users can control operations more easily and reduce costly mistakes.
