Resource Requirements Planning

Resource requirements planning (RRP) converts an organization's production plan or master production schedule into the impact of key resources such as labor, storage, shipping dollars and inventory levels. It allows companies to optimize the resources they need to execute day-to-day tasks based on their existing plans and schedules. RRP calculates the requirements for each resource based on planned production so managers can improve planning, capacity and financials.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Resource Requirements Planning

Small companies with production facilities can use RRP to optimize resources and scale resources up and down if required. As a result, these organizations can improve labor efficiency, shipping capacity and storage processes, as well as save money on production processes.
