Material Resource Planning (MRP) is a common production system used by many of today's manufacturing facilities. When interactions between a manufacturer and supplier become complex, MRP systems sometimes become chaotic, an event called MRP Nervousness. MRP Nervousness occurs when small scheduling updates lead to very large changes in the finished product schedule. A program was developed to allow a user to create an MRP system and derive outputs given certain known MRP system variables and rules. This program will be used in the study of MRP Nervousness.
Thesis (S.B.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, 2002.Written by two authors. Smith received his degree from the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, June 2002. Shulenburger received an S.B. in Math, June, 2002; and, an S.B. in Physics, June, 2002 with title: Numerical integration of the time dependent Schroedinger equation in the quantum field dynamical formalism (c2002). As of June 2006, Shulenburger did not receive an S.B. in Mechanical Engineering.Includes bibliographical references (leaf 20).
