Government purchasing, Public contracts
The government often imposes requirements on their contractors for the purpose of monitoring and control. Many government contractors utilize a matrix organization structure to help cope with the government's ever changing and challenging requirements. It is both the government requirements and this matrix organization which lead to the need for special information and features in a government contractor's manufacturing/material control system. This report specifically addresses those features which would be desirable in a government contractor's MRP system. These features involve the operation of the master schedule, the bill of material, the MRP software, the inventory files, purchasing, and shop floor control. No single government requirement is in direct conflict with the intent of an MRP system. However, the interpretation of these requirements vary within the government agencies and between government contractors. The contractor, the appropriate government agency, and the software vendor, if applicable, need to work together to implement a system which satisfies both internal management needs and government requirements. This report contains features and considerations which should be evaluated when a government contractor is implementing an MRP system.
