From the Paper:

"Doing business is mathematics by other means all a question of keeping equations in balance on both sides. Labor must be balanced with capital. Resources with allocation. Customers with services or goods. Workers with rewards. At the heart of an ideal operation " by which is usually meant a business, but a number of other multi-person organizations also qualify " is a sound theory of operations strategy. Part of that strategy must be a well-designed program of material requirements planning or MRP. After looking generally at the field of operations strategy or operations management, this paper looks at different perspectives on operations strategy and the ways in which MRP implementation plans shift according to which operational strategy is adopted.

Operations Strategy and MRP: A Brief History
Industrial management in business is a term used to describe the techniques and expertise of efficient organization, planning, direction, and control of the operations of a business. In the theory of industrial management, organization has two principal aspects. One relates to the establishment of lines of responsibility, drawn usually in the form of an organization chart that designates the executives of the business, from the president to the foreperson or department head, and specifies the functions for which they are responsible. The other principal aspect relates to the development of a staff of qualified executives (Johnson, Newell & Vergin 19)."
