24
Material Requirements Planningand Purchasing
  • Material requirements planning (MRP) inventory
    control
  • Determines when inventory needs to be restocked
  • Can predict future need based on demand forecasts
  • Takes customer demand as input, then works back
    to calculate resources needed to produce goods

25
Material Requirements Planningand Purchasing
(continued)
  • Bill of materials (BOM) list of all raw
    materials and subcomponent demands to produce a
    product
  • Economic order quantity (EOQ) optimal quantity
    of a raw material that minimizes overstocking and
    saves cost, without missing production deadlines
  • Considers cost, discounts for large quantities,
    cost of warehousing material, cost of alternative
    uses of money, etc.

26
Manufacturing Resource Planning
  • Manufacturing resource planning (MRP II)
    combines MRP with other related activities to
    plan the entire manufacturing process
  • Uses master production schedule

    Internet

51
Supply Chain Management Systems
  • Overall inventory in the U.S. is decreasing while
    U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) is increasing
  • Money saved from reduced inventory can be spent
    elsewhere
  • Reduction in inventory attributed to the use of
    ISs, especially supply chain management systems
  • Streamline operations throughout chain
  • ERP systems can also serve as SCM systems,
    connecting multiple organizations

52
Supply Chain Management Systems (continued)
53
The Importance of Trust
  • Supply chain systems work best when all
    businesses in the chain are sharing information
  • Trust between allied companies facilitates
    collaboration
  • Risk of disclosing important information to
    competitors is present
  • Risk of taking advantage of demand figures by
    charging higher prices is present

54
The Musical Chairs of Inventory
  • Small enterprises do not use SCM systems
  • Affect more powerful organization to which small
    enterprise is linked
  • Inventory turns the number of times the business
    sells its inventory per year
  • When SCMs of companies are not linked, demand
    requirements are unknown, so supply companies
    must overstock inventory
  • One company sits with lean inventory while
    other stands with overstock, hence musical
    chairs

55
Collaborative Logistics
  • Web allows organizations from different
    industries to collaborate
  • Businesses combine freight and share trucks
  • Can optimize logistics by connecting SCM systems
  • SCM systems can allow collaborative warehousing
    to share warehouse space

56
Enterprise Resource Planning
  • Many companies replace old, disparate information
    systems with enterprise applications
  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP) system
    manages daily operations and facilitates planning
  • Current ERP market includes four vendors
  • SAP
  • Oracle
  • Microsoft
  • Sage Software

57
Challenges and Disadvantages of ERP Systems
  • ERP systems pose many challenges
  • They are complex
  • They often require special tailoring for specific
    organizations
  • They may not support a companys unique sets of
    business processes
  • They are expensive
  • A process that becomes a weak link in one area
    may negatively affect other integrated processes

58
Providing the Missing Reengineering
  • Although most reengineering projects of the 1990s
    failed, ERP systems helped realize many of those
    ideas
  • ERP systems forced changes in processes
  • ERP systems allow better planning and managing of
    processes at the organizational level instead of
    at the organizational unit level

59
Summary
  • Effectiveness is the degree to which a task is
    accomplished
  • Efficiency is the ratio of output to input
  • Productivity is the measure of peoples
    efficiency
  • Information systems have been integrated into
    accounting services
  • Financial information systems help managers track
    cash

Summary (continued)
  • Computer-aided design (CAD) systems help
    engineers design new projects
  • Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems direct
    machines that assemble parts
  • Supply chain management (SCM) systems optimize
    workload, speed, and cost in supply chains
  • Customer relationship management (CRM) includes
    the entire cycle of relationships with customers

61
Summary (continued)
  • Human resource management systems facilitate
    staff selection and record keeping
  • Multiple companies SCM systems can be linked,
    facilitating cooperation, which requires trust
  • An enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can
    encompass all business processes, but is
    expensive and challenging
