Frequently asked questions

What is production planning?

Production planning addresses productivity, inventory management and resource utilization, ensuring these are in tune with each other and the bigger picture. On top of this, production planning involves establishing manufacturing goals from with financial, operational, HR KPIs and realities. Production planners are tasked with finding the most effective way to allocate resources, activities, employees, materials and capacity to make production happen. 

To establish a production plan for specific duration of time, planners must determine the product mix, match production to resources, set up time tables and delivering production orders. 

Production planning is an “all hands on deck” operation. Everyone from marketing to sales to HR to customer service to operations has a hand in determining sales forecasts, customer orders, projected demand, capacity and sales. Planners must have access to an array of information including materials, purchasing, engineering, HR, financial, sales, marketing and distribution. They must also be able to reconcile, compare and make sense of this information in order to create a comprehensive plan and determine which demand fluctuation strategy to choose: chase demand, level production, or mixed strategy.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder that successful production planning relies heavily on the integration of processes and systems, especially operations, finance, and the CRM. Not only do these systems allow planners to better gauge past demand and buyer behaviour, current resources and orders, but also project that information into the future. Creating sales forecasts, what-if scenarios, and models that take into account a variety of variables are essential functions, but even more so, is the availability and accuracy of this information to the planner and their ability to look at data from different departments next to one another. 

What is production planning and control?

If production planning is a company’s ability to establish achievable manufacturing goals, while managing inventory, productivity, human resources and resources, then production control is the means a company uses to optimize production in line with finance, operations and overall production targets

When production is controlled, companies are effectively managing inventory, quantities, supply, equipment and staff. Thus, they are allocating resources in a way that saves them money. Essentially, production targets are achieved in the most cost effective, productive and sustainable way. Production control seeks to regulate inventory, optimize production schedules and workflow, allocate resources efficiently, reduce waste and, of course, reduce costs.
