System Dynamics
System DynamicsMurphy's law states that if anything can go wrong, it will. Things are constantly going wrong, so it's essential that the MRP system mirror actual shop conditions; that is, both the physical system and the information system have to cope with scrap, incorrect counts, changes in customer needs, incorrect bills of material, engineering design changes, poor vendor performance, and a myriad of other mishaps.In this section, we look at the need for quick and accurate transaction processing and review the MRP planner's replanning activities in coping with change. We discuss sources of problems occurring as a result of database changes plus actions to ensure the system is telling the truth, even if the truth hurts.
