ERP versus MRP

MRP (Manufacturing Resource Planning) tracks the manufacturing and material requirements for manufacturers. It allows you to manage inventory, monitors production capacity, and tracks production cycle via the use of work orders. Work orders include bill of materials that specify the amount of material and parts needed, the steps and operations needed in production, and tracks the work item through its lifecycle.

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), takes the approach of MRP, and improves upon it for the entire enterprise. While MRP systems concentrate on manufacturing, ERP bridges organizational design & engineering, manufacturing, sales & customer service, accounting & finance, and shipping, into one database.
