The usage of the external interface is not relevant for the implementation of the Enterprise Resource Planning system, which has provided improved characteristics based upon standardization and lower maintenance (Thomas, 2002).
The disadvantages of the Material Requirements Planning system has been its coherency with the data, therefore the flaws present in the inventory data, the bill of material, or master production schedule will be transparent in the output, to avoid such failure and malpractice the vendors adapted to Material Requirements Planning demand minimum ninety six percent data integrity. The Material Requirements Planning system requires the user to identify the period it will take for the establishment of the factory, from the ordered component parts. The Material Requirements Planning system further assume the period of establishment as lead time, which will share similar quantitative significance for every item, irrespective of the quantity produced, and other simultaneous operations conducted within the factory (Thomas, 2002).
In comparison, the Enterprise Resource Planning syste...
The Material Requirements Planning system require that the corresponding system are intact, effective and efficient, the system is expected to result in failure if it handles the variety reduction and engineering in a manner through which the availability of the product can be ensured. The push system is considered to be the system which is based on factors of demands i.e. Customer Orders within the present and future scope. As per the system, the demand factor is taken into account on the basis of which the material and capacity planning is conducted. The Material Requirements Planning is based upon similar methodology, in which parallel systems i.e. JIT, Kanban are exercised. The Pull system is based upon the philosophy of Made to Order situation, where the flow of the material is in reverse direction relative to the flow of the documents and other formalities. The real demand i.e. the received orders are taken into account in this system, whereas the Material Requirements Planning system is based upon the concept of expected orders.
The Material Requirements Planning system continues however the design might get further modifications, whereas in Enterprise Resource Planning system require a system based on coding parts which is expected to determine the tracking and requirement analysis. The products are booked into and out of the yard in a more regular manner, and the Material Requirement Planning system has failed to catch-up with the pace of such modifications.
The implementation of the Enterprise Resource Planning system is expected to result in the best practices, for this purpose the organization has to select between
