The paper discusses the re-design process for the Coca Cola Company, one of the more complex design projects using MRP II ever accomplished. The paper illustrates the key advantage in the design of the MRP II system for Coca Cola, MRP II's capability to integrate and interface with a variety of existing systems. The author believes that the key to success was the planning, the ability to break down the process into small bits and the ability to keep focused on the main goals of the re-design.

From the Paper:

"MRP II has hundreds of capabilities including creation of manufacturing orders, master production schedules, a system manager including tax and bank services, a general ledger, accounts receivable, purchase orders, inventory control, order entry, job costing, multi-currency support, time, attendance, forecasting and this is only a small portion of its capabilities. Prior to the invention of MRP II all of these processes were handled by separate software packages, such as Peachtree for accounting, Peoplesoft for human resources, and Microsoft Access for other functions. None of these programs could communicate with one another. MRP II gave companies the ability to combine all of these into one system and allow communication between these functions."
