WMATA Landover
8201 Ardwick-Ardmore Rd.
Landover, MD 20785

While the Principles of Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) courseware contains a number of exercises and worksheets which provide a deep understanding of the logic of MRP, this workshop augments the curriculum with many additional activities to engage adult learners.  These exercises will give attendees the opportunity to "think like an MRP system thinks," thereby retaining concepts well beyond the classroom.  We encourage WMATA to provide samples of items that are currently kitted, to spark discussions on how to use MRP in your environments.

Registration includes tuition plus a customized workbook for each student.  The three modules consist of:

  • Manufacturing Product Structures: definitions, bills of material, BOM uses & formats, accuracy issues, process routings, work centers, utilization & efficiency, processing time elements, cost overview
  • Basics of MRP: planning requirements to pull a kit, two basic replenishment methods, time phasing, MRP flow, its objectives, functions, inputs & outputs; MRP planning grid calculations
  • Managing with MRP: perform MRP explosions, causes of change, proce
  • ss steps, generate an MRP run, work with action messages, identify MRP process problem indicators
