Develop an MRP for Space Age Furniture Company using the
information in the case including the production of sub-assemblies in
lot sizes of 1,000.

demand for part 3079. Suggest ways for improvements over sub-assemblies
in lot sizes of 1,000.

Calculate a new MRP that improves the base MRP.
Compare and contrast the types of production processing—job
shop, batch, repetitive, or continuous—and determine which the primary
mode of operation is and why.
Describe ways that management can keep track of job status and location during production.
Recommend any changes that might be beneficial to the company and/or add value for the customer.
