What is the difference between ERP and MRP?
In the 2020s, there is virtually no difference between these software/database definitions. However, if a company only advertises as MRP, don’t expect the comprehensive features of an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. According to Google Trends, the term “ERP Software” was about five times more popular than “MRP Software” in 2004, and now MRP has practically disappeared as a search term, with “ERP Software” more than thirty times as popular. If you are a manufacturer looking for better control of your inventory and manufacturing costs, look for an ERP solution. You’ll get everything you may have previously associated with MRP in an ecosystem designed for a comprehensive understanding of your business.
