Title: Improving production planning through finite-capacity MRP

Abstract: Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) technique is widely employed by most manufacturing companies, even though field applications point out some weaknesses, including ignored production capacity constraints and fixed lead-times. These weaknesses often lead to infeasible production schedules, which trigger fluctuating workloads over time, significant adjustment effort and eventually unpredictably long lead times. This paper introduces a capacity-oriented MRP procedure that combines the traditional MRP procedure with an approach based on linear programming: in this way, requirement of lead times pre-determined a priori outside the MRP procedure is overcome. The new procedure is then applied to a real-life company and results highlight that feasible plans of orders are generated without requiring lead-times as input and without relevant computational burden.
