Production Planning and Control
Production planning and control refer to two strategies that work cohesively throughout the manufacturing process. Production planning involves what to produce, when to produce it, how much to produce, and more. A long-term view of production planning is necessary to fully optimize the production flow.
Production control uses different control techniques to reach optimum performance from the production system to achieve throughput targets.
In this course you will learn the basic concepts of Production, Manufacturing processes, selection of an apt system for optimizing inventory, Product management to advanced planning and control techniques as such lot sizing, EOQ method, Order size calculation, Break-even analysis, Assembly line balancing, and many more.
Most suitable for students belonging to mechanical engineering, management, Industrial engineering, Production technology, and Manufacturing Science. Furthermore, this course covers all the topics for university students having PPC as one of the subject or a part of Industrial engineering and for ambitious Production managers employed in various industries.
