Production Planning

Production Planning seeks to maintain optimum plans to access and use materials, facilities, and resources to make products to satisfy business objectives. Production planning in the manufacturing environment involves the implementation, integration and monitoring of four major elements: scheduling, labour planning, equipment planning, and cost planning. The usual objective is to set and achieve the right production targets using as little resource consumption as possible.
