About the Course

This two-hour Online Self-Study addresses Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II). Manufacturing Resource Planning is a method for the effective planning and control of all resources in a manufacturing organization. It is an integrated method, which facilitates development of consistent plans at multiple levels of the organization and across the functions of the organization.
