An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System takes a manufacturer’s existing operational data systems and integrates them into an automated platform that allows the optimization of operations and provides decision-makers with important financial and production data.
Predating ERP solutions, Material Resource Planning (MRP) software originated in the 1970s and allowed manufacturers to more precisely calculate which materials are required, when and in what categories. An MRP ERP system links MRP software within a centralized ERP solution to integrate databases and information from multiple other potential systems, including, for instance, production (PLM), procurement (SRM) and distribution (SCM) modules.

ERP manages a manufacturer’s supply chain and operational processes from a single, integrated solution, supporting the company’s MRP and related software systems. MRP/ERP helps a company track its supply chain operations and link that data into a central platform to produce financial data about the processes.
However, an ERP MRP system is limited in that it can only provide the functionality to manufacturing supervisors that are within the scope of its individual applications.
Linked MRP and ERP systems afford your company the ability to centrally monitor core business functions as well as provide you with real-time data about your materials and supply chain processes. However, the 21st century manufacturing market demands greater system efficiencies and more comprehensive quality and compliance functionality for companies to stay competitive.
