Production Planning

Production planning ensures efficient execution, coordination and standardization of production processes.

What is Production Planning?

Production planning and control ensures that production processes run smoothly in the area of operational production management. This includes the comprehensive planning, control, monitoring and management of all processes in the production of goods and commodities. This makes it an important component of supply chain management. 

Tasks of production planning

The tasks of production planning include, among others, the planning of primary requirements (goods in demand), the planning of secondary requirements (material requirements planning) as well as the entire production process planning. Production control follows the planning, it releases and controls the orders.

In this way, the potential of the entire production chain can be exploited.
