The past few years have seen the utilization of integrated software packages (ERP type) in numerous enterprises. We can thus speak of a large-scale diffusion of the integrated enterprise resource management approach, which induces a growing interest in mastering techniques and approaches put in place in the production planning field, notably collaborative sales and operations planning, master production scheduling, material requirements planning, and implementation control of the plans established.
This book adopts this perspective, focusing on the techniques and approaches that contend with decision-making for short- and medium-term planning, and short-term production and inventory control. The application examples that accompany the presentation of each technique would allow students to acquire a good understanding of the links between the concepts, techniques, and their use in practice.
For the practice exercises and problems at the end of each chapter, students can deepen their grasp of the role played by production and inventory planning and control in a manufacturing company’s supply chain management, sharpening their skills in applying :
- The decision support tools and techniques that are implemented in the production planning domain; and
- The relevant information in decision-making situations.
In other words, this book would allow students to obtain the knowledge and know-how that are essential in the competitiveness of a manufacturing firm.
