Environments surrounding production sites have changed greatly in recent years. Accommodating environmental changes calls for the design and development of information systems that center on production lines. There is a need for a training program that teaches learners to understand the particulars of an operation and apply that knowledge to an information system. In this research, we used material requirements planning (MRP) as the subject for which basic skills are to be taught and developed an MRP exercise-based training program. The program is designed for 13 lectures of 90 minutes each, and it consists of MRP exercises, modeling methods to represent them, the use of a programming language for system development, and finally, evaluation of the exercises. Lecture materials are described in 505 lecture slides using Microsoft PowerPoint to allow visualization of topics through graphs and models. The developed training program was then delivered to 86 college students, and its results were measured through quizzes to verify educational effectiveness.
