This paper deals with the sensitivity analysis of MRP under probablistic lead times and demands. A simulation model incorporating a MRP module is described and results obtained from multi-level product structures explored. A total of eight lot sizing rules are considered. The results produced by the simulation model deal with period by period and overall simulation run statistics. These statistics cover service level, average backorder and inventory levels, maximum and minimum backorder and inventory levels, and the number of periods backorders were experienced during the simulation run. Several studies conducted using this simulation model are described.
