Processes in Production Planning and Control

ImageProcesses in production planning and production control comprise the following main areas:

  • Sales and operations planning for determining the quantities to be produced.
  • Material requirements planning   to calculate net requirements and component
    requirements, taking into account scrap and lot sizes.
  • Capacity requirements planning for detailed production planning, taking
    into account available capacities.
  • Production control to control and record the production process (create
    production documents, record confirmations)
