Home > Manufacturing Terms & Definitions > Material Replenishment System (MRS)


Techniques for using cards, lights, heights, grids, squares, flags or other visual means of signaling the need to replenish materials, parts, or supplies located at re-supply points. Helps facilitate pull, not push. MRS highlights waste and the inability to master one-piece flow. Unlike MRP, it does not hide waste.
