Next, the firm should maintain the lowest cost possible level for product and materials, and finally planning of the manufacturing activities, delivering the schedules and the procurement of the activities. Material requirement planning (MRP) is the most vital part of the supply chain. For such achievement, Mr. Ahmad had operational setbacks and challenges to about the material requirement planning (Baker, 2018). The biggest questions that disturb the vice president was the technique through which the company could remain as the sustainable leader of the aluminum market and be able to expand in the long run across the geographical market (Jacobs, Chase, and Lummus, 2014).

  The Dubai Aluminum (DUBAL), and the Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) were both initial manufacturers of the aluminum of very high quality. After the two companies merged in 2013, they became known as the Emirate Global Aluminium. The EGA has a successful supply chain that their products goes through to increase their success in the industry. The material requirement and planning principle demands that EGA should have strong supply base. EGA has been using unique strategy for their material requirement, that is through gathering supplies and selection of the suppliers by the supplier material quality, the supplier quality is determined through their product and the efficiency of delivery, which is within the stipulated period. The history of the suppliers, and the attempt of the suppliers to improve their activities in the future (Jacobs, Chase, and Lummus, 2014).

  EGA has been working to ensure that it improves and develops its supply chain for the maintenance of efficient operations at an affordable cost. Every year Emirate Global Aluminium is aiming at being the leading supplier of aluminum across the globe through the use of advanced technologies and innovations. For instance, the EGA has been able to develop the DX technology which has transformed their activities effectively. Since the technology has enabled the firm to minimize their reduction cells which results in the potential productivity increase and reduction in emission that are caused by the operation of the smelter. The technology has enabled the EGA to customize and meeting the need of their customers through forecasting.
