""The definitive reference for the next generation of
manufacturing practitioners and leaders."" -- From the Foreword by
Dave Turbide, CFPIM, CMfgE, CIRM, CSCP
""Finally, MRP has been brought into our new age where, in order
to fight for increased share and profitability, manufacturers must
not only cope with market volatility and supply chain variability,
they must embrace it as a competitive weapon."" -- Bob Reary,
Fellow-level Certificate, APICS
A fully revised and updated edition of the landmark work on
material requirements planning (MRP), "Orlicky's Material
Requirements Planning," Third Edition focuses on the new rules
required to effectively support a manufacturing operation using MRP
systems in the twenty-first century. This authoritative resource
offers proven solutions that help you gain the competitive edge
through strategic lead time reductions, substantial reductions in
total inventory investment, and significant increases in service
levels. This is an indispensable tool for manufacturing
practitioners and anyone preparing for CPIM certification.

Building on the pioneering work of Joseph Orlicky, this new
edition of the classic text on material requirements planning (MRP)
reveals the next evolutionary step for materials and supply chain
synchronization in the modern manufacturing landscape.
"Orlicky's Material Requirements Planning," Third Edition
reviews the poor business results embedded in many of today's
manufacturing systems, discusses the core problems causing these
results, explains an alternative pull structure for planning and
controlling materials flow, and presents results from actual
This thoroughly updated edition offers comprehensive coverage of
MRP, describes the current state of the MRP application, and
identifies the fundamental changes required to achieve sustainable
success given the current global circumstances and technology
options. This state-of-the art guide articulates the next
generation of MRP logic--demand driven MRP (DDMRP)--and provides a
roadmap for the near and distant future for this critical
manufacturing management tool.
