Abstract

It will be of great benefit to American manufacturing firms to study both of these systems [Materials Requirement Planning and Just-In-Time] to determine which of the two would better suit the needs of the firm. A comparison and contrast of MRP and JIT, and also of the American and Japanese manufacturing systems shall be addressed to help the readers to assess the proper method of materials management for a firm.
