Moulders Consulting: Providing Top-Quality MRP Software For Manufacturing

At Moulders Consulting, we have designed a unique MRP/ERP system tailored specifically for the manufacturing and Injection Moulding industries.

Our team comprises industry insiders with over 40 years of collective experience in Plastic Injection Moulding, spanning roles in sales, marketing, operations, and management.

MRP, short for Materials Requirements Planning, plays a pivotal role in orchestrating the management and planning of materials needed for manufacturing.

In the context of injection moulding, MRP is a vital process that ensures the availability of the right materials precisely when they are needed to create superior quality products.

Here’s a breakdown of the key steps involved in MRP for injection moulding:

1. Production Schedule Determination: In this initial phase, the system lays out the production schedule by considering customer demand, existing inventory levels, and other relevant factors. This data forms the basis for creating a production plan, outlining the quantity of products to be manufactured within a specified time frame.

2. Material Requirements Calculation: Following the production schedule, the next step is to calculate the materials required. This involves considering the quantity of products to be produced, the materials needed for each product, and accounting for any potential scrap or waste during production.

3. Inventory Check: After determining material requirements, the system assesses the current inventory levels of the necessary materials. This critical step helps to ascertain whether there’s enough inventory to meet production demands or if additional materials must be ordered.

4. Purchase Order Generation: If inventory falls short, our MRP system takes the initiative to generate purchase orders for the required materials. These orders include details like quantity, delivery dates, and other pertinent information.

5. Progress Tracking: Once the purchase orders are in place, our MRP system diligently monitors their progress. This includes keeping tabs on delivery dates and promptly addressing any delays or issues that may arise during the procurement process.

6. Plan Adjustments: In the event of alterations to the production schedule or any unexpected hiccups with materials, the MRP system flexibly adapts the plan to ensure a smooth and efficient workflow.

To summarise, MRP is a cornerstone process for managing materials in the realm of injection moulding. Its core function is to guarantee that the right materials are always at hand when needed – a necessity for the production of high-quality products.
