Manufacturing resource planning systems manage materials and inventory, plus other dynamic variables that impact production. The original MRP provided relatively static metrics, but MRP II systems go far beyond this. MRP II integrates more complex and dynamic data, such as staffing levels, machine capacity and financial data to help managers more accurately plan inventory and production scheduling.
