Requirements Planning and Inventory Management Seminars
Free to members
March 25th
PSS World Medical
Material Requirements Planning (8:00am - 12:00pm)
To effectively use a material requirements planning (MRP) system, it is
essential to understand how bills of material (BOMs) are structured and how
MRP calculates requirements. This course includes instruction and exercises
so students can practice these important concepts. From structuring simple
BOMs to creating phantom bills, modular bills, and super bills, the
participant will learn many ways to use BOMs, how to calculate material
requirements, and some common action/exception messages that MRP
systems frequently include.

Basics of Inventory Management (1:00pm - 5:00pm)
For most organizations, inventory is one of the more visible and tangible
aspects of doing business. Beginning with the management of suppliers
delivering raw materials to goods in various levels of completion in the
production process and management and delivery of finished goods in the
distributions channel, each type represents money tied up until the inventory
becomes purchased products. The workshop provides a broad overview of
basic concepts and good inventory management strategies.
