Complete the following MRP records for the Vaxidene drug. Note the following:
• Doses have been converted into milligrams to facilitate material planning (4,250 doses = 17,000 milligrams).
• Make sure that you calculate the correct requirements for each compound and drug. For instance, each 4-milligram dose requires 2 milligrams of compound X (2 to 1). Therefore, to start mixing
17,000 milligrams of Vaxidene, Baxter Pharmaceuticals will need 8,500 milligrams of compound X.
