Why a Systematic Investigation of Production Planning and Control Procedures is Needed for the Target-oriented Configuration of PPC
The target-oriented configuration of production planning and control (PPC) confronts companies with major challenges. While there are already many publications dealing with the effect of specific procedures of PPC tasks on the logistic objectives, there is still a lack of a framework allowing a comprehensive and relatively simple examination of the target conformity of PPC configuration on the level of procedures. Furthermore, such a framework would thereby also enable companies to position
... r PPC among conflicting production and logistic objectives. This contribution presents the current state of knowledge on target-oriented and holistic PPC configuration and points out why a systematic investigation of the generally valid interdependencies of PPC procedures with each other as well as the impact on the most important objectives is necessary. Further, it is outlined which future research activities are planned and with a demonstrative example illustrated how complex cause-effect relationships within PPC on the level of procedures arise. © 2021 IEEE.
