Production Planning and Control Systems-State of the Art and New DirectionsLecture Notes in Computer Science
Document TypeBook Chapter
AbstractThis chapter begins with a description of the role of production planning and control (PPC) within the manufacturing function. After discussing the impact of the operating environment on the choice a system for PPC, we describe some recent empirical evidence regarding the use and performance results of various PPC systems. This is followed by a brief overview of the two most widely used systems for production planning and control. We then describe a recent development in the area of short-term detailed scheduling exploiting the latest developments in computing technology. The chapter concludes with a discussion of an emerging paradigm for exploiting the advancements in computing technology for developing sophisticated state-of-the- art PPC systems capable of satisfying the needs of tomorrow's market place.
