by Zhixiang Chen, Jennifer S. Shang
International Journal of Manufacturing Technology and Management (IJMTM), Vol. 13, No. 1, 2008

Abstract: Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) and Just-in-Time (JIT) are currently two of the most popular manufacturing technologies. Based on 246 Chinese companies' survey, we found that the degree of the MRP and JIT implementation and integration has a positive relationship with the manufacturer's performance. The hybrid MRP and JIT system, which create synergy and attains better performance, is widely accepted in China.
