Abstract

In the small business industry, effective cost control is of paramount importance. A well-functioning Material Requirements Planning (MRP) process plays a vital role in enabling businesses to manage their costs efficiently. This research paper explores the improvement of MRP in the context of small businesses in Thailand through the implementation of a web-based application. The objective was to enhance the MRP process by developing an MRP system using ReactJS, NodeJS, and PostgreSQL. The system was evaluated using heuristic evaluation techniques and the results indicated a positive outcome, the mean value is 0.83. The developed web based MRP system proved beneficial for small businesses, as it effectively reduced stocking costs and facilitated efficient raw material procurement. This research provides valuable insights into the implementation of web based MRP systems, enabling small businesses to optimize inventory management and enhance operational efficiency.
