Course Overview

What is production management? Production management encompasses all functions or processes that surround planning, organisation, direction, and control of production activities. Simply put, it deals with all activities and processes involved in converting raw material into finished products. Production management brings together employees, money, machines, material, methods, and markets to meet customer requirements. What does material requirements planning include? Broadly, material requirements planning is a system for planning, scheduling and controlling inventory, which is used to manage manufacturing or production processes to meet customer demand. It mainly ensures ready availability of raw material of the correct quality and quantity at the correct time to be manufactured into finished products to meet customer demand. These days, organisations are using advanced forecasting techniques to anticipate customer demand and plan for raw material and manufacturing of finished products in advance.
