PRODUCTION PLANNING AND CONTROL

Purchasing and Production Activity Control is the implementation of the Production Plan. It is necessary that the whole Production Planning System is integrated, and changes at any level must affect immediately the other levels.

This comprehensive and up-to-date text, now in its Third Edition, describes how the latest techniques in production planning and control are applied to contemporary industrial setups so as to meet the ever-increasing demands in industrial organizations for better quality of services, for faster delivery of products and for adapting to the rapid changes taking place in the industrial scenario. With the demands in the industrial arena increasingly tending to be lumpy, the most effective strategy for planning and controlling production processes cannot be a static, preconceived one. Instead, it is one that is flexible and is capable of adapting to the erratic changes in demand patterns. Evolving such a strategy requires more of practical skill than mere theoretical knowledge of the subject. This book explores the demands of the present-day industrial environment and the techniques for addressing these demands through a number of case studies drawn from Indian industries. The efficacy of various planning strategies, the methods for implementing them, and their suitability for different industries have been clearly explained in relation to these cases. While the essentials of theory have been covered in a simple and straightforward style, the stress is on developing the practical skills required to tackle the unpredictable problems and the unforeseen demands that pose a formidable challenge to modern industries. The book places emphasis as much on the principles of heuristic techniques as on the systematic approach to production planning. This book would serve as a useful textbook to postgraduate students of management as well as undergraduate students of industrial engineering. It will be equally useful to the teaching community and the practicing professionals. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION • Includes a new chapter on ‘Leagile Manufacturing: A Contemporary Manufacturing Syndrome’ (Chapter 11) • Provides several references to explore more in the field KEY FEATURES • Gives solved problems that serve as numerical illustrations of the theoretical concepts. • The Case Studies given focus on the Indian scenario; these will be of great practical value to students and professionals alike. • Offers substantial coverage of the modern heuristic methods, the Kanban system and the ERP techniques.

This proceedings volume contains selected and refereed contributions that were presented at the conference on "Recent Developments and New Perspectives of Operations Research in the Area of Production Planning and Control" in Hagen/Germany, 25. - 26. June 1992. This conference was organized with the cooperation of the FernuniversiHit Hagen and was jointly hosted by the "Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Operations Research (DGOR)" and the "Manufacturing Special Interest Group of the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA-SIGMA)". For the organization of the conference we received generous financial support from the sponsors listed at the end of this volume. We wish to express our appreciation to all supporters for their contributions. This conference was the successor of the JOInt ORSA/DGOR-conference in Gaithersburg/Maryland, USA, on the 30. and 31. July 1991. Both OR-societies committed themselves in 1989 to host joint conferences on special topics of interest from the field of operations research. This goal has been successfully realized in the area of production management; and it should be an incentive to conduct similar joint conferences on other topics of operations research in the years to come. The 36 contributions in this proceedings volume deal with general and special problems in production planning as well as approaches and algorithms for their solution. They cover a wide range of operations research within product management and will therefore address a wide circle of interested readers among OR-scientists and professionals alike.

Over the last fifty-plus years, the increased complexity and speed of integrated circuits have radically changed our world. Today, semiconductor manufacturing is perhaps the most important segment of the global manufacturing sector. As the semiconductor industry has become more competitive, improving planning and control has become a key factor for business success. This book is devoted to production planning and control problems in semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities. It is the first book that takes a comprehensive look at the role of modeling, analysis, and related information systems for such manufacturing systems. The book provides an operations research- and computer science-based introduction into this important field of semiconductor manufacturing-related research.

Many companies have adopted the approach of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II). Despite the improvements and broadening of the MRP framework, MRP II systems still perform poorly in certain manufacturing environments. Help is at hand. This book proposes new ideas to improve the planning activities at the strategic, tactical and execution layers in manufacturing organisations. It takes into account the diverse nature of manufacturing environments. The book presents an almost unique combination of theory tested in practice, enhancing traditional manufacturing planning approaches. It is essential reading for managers and practitioners in the field, and is also suitable as an advanced text for students in industrial engineering, manufacturing and management.
