Production planning & Control

Production planning & Control Date 24 – 25 February 2020, Location – Antwerp, Belgium


An effective production planning & control system helps to maintain inventory at proper level, hence minimizes wastage. It helps to have better control over raw material inventory, which contributes to effective purchasing. Having in place a sound system of production planning & control, everything in relate to production is planned well in advance of operation. Therefore, it helps in minimizing capital investment in equipment and inventories.To get the most value out of our resources we must design production processes that make products most efficiently. Managing the operation means planning for and controlling the resources used in the process.

For efficient, effective and economical operation in a manufacturing unit of an organization, it is essential to integrate the production planning and control system. Production planning and subsequent production control follow adaption of product design and finalization of a production process.Production planning is required for scheduling, dispatch, inspection, quality management, inventory management, supply management and equipment management. Production control ensures that production team can achieve required production target, optimum utilization of resources, quality management and cost savings.
