Abstract

This paper reports results of a sample survey on usage of computerised Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) system in Malaysian manufacturing companies. Although the system has been widely used in more advance countries, the degree of usage among Malaysian manufacturers is minimal. The benefits derived as reported by the users in Malaysia are similar to those indicated by the users in other countries. Among the non-users, it is found that their operating activities are suitable for the implementation of computerised MRP system and significant benefits can be derived from it, provided the financial and know-how limitations can be overcome.
