Continuous manufacturing

We manufacture runs back to back in many cases. Lots average between 50,000
and 250,000 with total yearly volume on a single part in the millions. We
don't use MRP but we do use scheduling. What's on your mind?

I previously asked this question and only received one response.
Does this mean there are no other continuous manufacturers on Vantage
or that there are no continuous manufacturers on vantage using MRP
and/or scheduling?

Are any of you working in a continuous manufacturing environment
as opposed to a job shop that is currently working with both MRP and
scheduling and effectively using those modules in their environment?

MRP does not appear to be widely used. We do use it, but we are not into
continuous manufacturing.
