Planning and Control Technique for More Effective Production Operations

The costs of neglecting up-to-date production operations are enormous - miserable productivity, wasted man-hours, lost productions, machine downtime and strained relations with your customers. Shutdowns are costly. More frustrating are unexpected shutdowns caused by planning mistakes. Planning is the heart of manufacturing. It determines your success in satisfying your customers, which in turns determines your company performance.

Successful manufacturing planning and control is the vital link to your plant’s continued efficiency and productivity. The amount of money invested is also substantial and this investment will directly affect the profitability of your operations. Therefore it is fundamental to update and improve your production system to ensure you derive maximum benefits, your plant is well geared up and in excellent operating condition as well as your employees are working at top effectiveness.

This practical and intensive course offers a realistic discussion of increasing efficiency and productivity of production operations by using reliable advanced systems.

Inventory management plays a big role today in most manufacturing organizations. You have to constantly educate your planning and inventory control personnel to make them an expert in optimizing your inventory level to suit your schedules and capacity for the profits of your organization.
