Manufacturing resources planning can be said to be one of the most significant development to have taken places in the area of manufacturing software in recent years. It is also termed as MRP- II, to distinguish it form materials requirement planning (MRP) from which it solved. In effect, MRP- II provides a comprehensive framework for integrative planning and control of manufacturing resources, within the context of a specific type of industry and for a given firm. Typically it adopts a modular approach and generally includes the following main planning and control modules: 1. Resources Requirement planning (RRP) 2. Production Planning (PP) 3. Master Production Sxhedule (MPS) 4. Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) 5. Capacity Requirement Planning 6. Shop Loading and Shop Floor Control (SFC) 7. Inventory Control (IC). MRP- II framework attempts to integrate the above planning and control modules into a single whole. Like every good system for manufacturing planning and control, MRP- II too focusses on the key manufacturing tasks of dependability, flexibility and cost. The central concern of MRP- II could be summed up as one ensuring manufacture in the right quantity, of the right product, at the right time with right quality.
