Following several introductory chapters that explain some basic MAPICS concepts and data, this book goes through Material Requirements Planning, Master Scheduling with and without the MPSP module, Forecasting, and Capacity Requirements Planning in full detail, explaining every function and how to use it. MAPICS Planning is written as a guidebook with hints and tips, practical advice, and "how-to" information not found in the reference manuals. Excerpt: Planning systems have been around for a number of years and are installed in literally thousands of companies, but they seem to have a kind mystery about them. There is a perception in the market place that computerized planning systems are essential to the operation of an efficient manufacturing business. Yet only about 11% of manufacturing companies have such systems installed.
