In traditional manufacturing, Inventory based manufacturing did not work out, a next step was ''Material Requirements Planning'' or MRP. The idea is simply to predict your part production based on:

* Your sales forecast
* Your bill of materials

As an example. a bike has two wheels, a wheel has 48 spokes. If you know how much bikes you are going to sell, you know how how much wheels and how many spokes you need to create.
