Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP)


A logistics strategy designed to manage a distribution network and link it with manufacturing. DRP involves planning for future stock requirements at various distribution points and determining the process by which these requirements will be met. DRP systems are based on manufacturing resources planning (MRP) technology and can span a whole logistics chain from remote warehouses to the factory floor.

See MRP (manufacturing resources planning).
