MRP, which stands for Materials Requirements Planning, plays a pivotal role in ensuring the seamless production of high-quality products in the injection moulding sector. Here’s a breakdown of the key steps involved in MRP for Plastic Injection Moulding:

1. Determine The Production Schedule: First, the production schedule is formulated by considering factors such as customer demand, current inventory levels, and other relevant variables.

This information forms the basis for a comprehensive production plan, specifying the quantity of products to be manufactured within a defined timeframe.

2. Calculate Material Requirements: With the production schedule in place, the precise material requirements are then calculated.

This involves identifying the quantity of products required for manufacture, determining the specific materials needed for each product, and accounting for any potential scrap or waste generated during the manufacturing process.

3. Inventory Level Assessment: Following the material requirements calculation, the system conducts a thorough assessment of inventory levels to determine whether the current supply meets the material requirements. This step is crucial to identify whether our existing inventory can meet the production demands, or if additional materials need to be ordered.

4. Generate Purchase Orders: In instances where our current inventory falls short, our MRP system automatically generates purchase orders for the required materials. These purchase orders contain essential details such as quantity, delivery dates, and other relevant information.

5. Progress Tracking: Our MRP system actively monitors the progress of these orders, tracking delivery dates and promptly identifying any potential delays or issues that might arise during the procurement process.

6. Plan Adjustment: If there are any changes in the production schedule – or should delays to sourcing materials arise – our MRP system adjusts the plan to accommodate alterations, thereby ensuring the production process remains on track.

In essence, MRP is an indispensable process for managing the materials essential for injection moulding. At MCL Software, we understand the intricacies of this process, and we’re here to empower your business with our expertise and tailored solutions!
