To MRP, or not MRP, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of forced forecasts
Or to take arms against them, to see demand as it is
And by opposing end the madness. To guess – to forecast,
No more; and by planning to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand inventory shocks
That this era is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d.
