Hi I'm currently writing a dissertation and it is to do with ERP/MRP management systems in a SME engineering company, I'm mainly focusing on inventory management.

At the moment I'm at the research stage and trying to write about non ERP/MRP approach within a SME.

Could anyone point me in the write direction on what is used for inventory management outside of MRP systems.

Trying the get a gauge on what is used out there at the moment.

Very hard to get any information for company's.

Any advice would be appreciated
