The Complete Story

Many people have asked if they need IQR when they have an MRP or ERP system. “Won’t MRP give our material planners all the information they need to plan the right amount of inventory?”

The answer is yes, MRP does that. MRP sends a message to the planners for every item where supply and demand are not properly time phased and balanced. BUT, with changing demand every day planners get more action messages than they can work. How to they decide which ones to work? Do they work by date, by part number, by quantity?


IQR helps MRP planners know which are the most important parts to work.


IQR inventory management system provides the dollar focus that is lacking in MRP systems. IQR will show the planners and buyers which parts to work to have the biggest impact on working capital and cash flow. The planner can be much more efficient, having a bigger impact on the business with less effort by focusing on inventory dollars instead of part quantities.


IQR works with, and compliments your ERP or MRP system.
