Examples; 10 of the 975 standard requirements:

  1. Does the control plan check list indicate that all dimensional requirements, material, and functional tests that will occur after the prototype, and before full production, are included?

  2. Do you have a system for obtaining your customers review and disposition of all nonconforming materials that cannot be reworked to Customer Requirements or are deemed obvious scrap?

  3. Can sufficient planning, appraisal and information system be developed to make sure a disciplined loan process to meet up genuine production requirement and its supervision?

  4. What key performance measures can you identify as necessary to measure and monitor the performance of a Manufacturing and Resource Planning system in your organization?

  5. What are the room classification requirements for the preparation of containers and other packaging materials to be used in the fabrication of sterile products?

  6. Are there procedures that define acceptable activity (inspections, tests, verifications) and record keeping requirements for incoming product and material?

  7. Development of flexible, reusable, and maintainable control software is important to implement your organizations advanced industrial automated system?

  8. Have all of the relevant background materials been reviewed, such as the contract requirements, application requirements documentation, and procedures?

  9. What does your organization consider to be one logistic unit that will be managed and controlled by Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRPII) concepts?

  10. How are advanced techniques such as Six Sigma, Design Of Experiments, Design to Cost, Design for Manufacturability integrated into your operations?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make MRP investments work better.

This MRP All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
