This comprehensive and up-to-date text, now in its Third Edition, describes how the latest techniques in production planning and control are applied to contemporary industrial setups so as to meet the ever-increasing demands in industrial organizations for better quality of services, for faster delivery of products and for adapting to the rapid changes taking place in the industrial scenario. With the demands in the industrial arena increasingly tending to be lumpy, the most effective strategy for planning and controlling production processes cannot be a static, preconceived one. Instead, it is one that is flexible and is capable of adapting to the erratic changes in demand patterns. Evolving such a strategy requires more of practical skill than mere theoretical knowledge of the subject. This book explores the demands of the present-day industrial environment and the techniques for addressing these demands through a number of case studies drawn from Indian industries. The efficacy of various planning strategies, the methods for implementing them, and their suitability for different industries have been clearly explained in relation to these cases. While the essentials of theory have been covered in a simple and straightforward style, the stress is on developing the practical skills required to tackle the unpredictable problems and the unforeseen demands that pose a formidable challenge to modern industries. The book places emphasis as much on the principles of heuristic techniques as on the systematic approach to production planning. This book would serve as a useful textbook to postgraduate students of management as well as undergraduate students of industrial engineering. It will be equally useful to the teaching community and the practicing professionals. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION • Includes a new chapter on ‘Leagile Manufacturing: A Contemporary Manufacturing Syndrome’ (Chapter 11) • Provides several references to explore more in the field KEY FEATURES • Gives solved problems that serve as numerical illustrations of the theoretical concepts. • The Case Studies given focus on the Indian scenario; these will be of great practical value to students and professionals alike. • Offers substantial coverage of the modern heuristic methods, the Kanban system and the ERP techniques.

Production organisations are now manufacturing a wide variety of products with increasingly shorter life cycles. Managing such organisations is a complicated task. A primary reason for the complexity is the lack of clarity as to how modifications of the components of the production organization affect the performance of the organisation as a whole. What ultimately matters is the bottom line' efficiency and flexibility of the overall production organisation. This book focuses on how changes to the production components affect the organisation as a whole. Solutions are outlined based on concepts from Information Science and Systems Theory; knowledge of manufacturing as an application domain; and experience with the design of computerised factory control systems. More specifically, it describes the development of a reference model, which represents an idealised production organisation, defining the global tasks of its components as well as the relations between the components and the whole. A systems view of a production organisation is given, encompassing all aspects of production and management.
This new, extended edition provides readers with a detailed introduction to the tasks associated with industrial operations and detailed descriptions of the core processes of Production Planning in SAP ERP. You will learn about the different processes for discrete manufacturing in the following contexts: What are the business requirements? How can they be implemented using SAP? Which configuration steps are necessary and what are their effects? With step-by-step instruction and detailed, expert guidance, this book enables you to successfully implement and apply Production Planning in SAP ERP in your own company. This book also includes valuable information on exploring the potential of SAP SCM integration, and includes a new chapter on special forms of procurement.
