However, they can sometimes do more harm than good by providing inaccurate plans and schedules. As a result, the wrong actions can be set into motion, demand can go unfulfilled, and money can be lost.

One, manufacturers need to take care to select the right MRP system-one that will fully meet all of their requirements. Two, manufacturers need to implement the right business processes in order to optimize the effectiveness of their new MRP solution.
