ERP Software

How is ERP different from MRP?

ERP Software stands for Enterprise Resource Planning and is an information system designed to coordinate the resources, information and processes within an organization. It is comprised of a common database that provides interfaces and information to every department within the business. MRP – Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) or Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) -- is a predecessor to ERP and is a production planning, scheduling, and inventory control system used to manage manufacturing processes.
