About the book
You might have read articles on production planning and control (PPC) topics in this blog. I have posted many articles on production planning and control based on my work experience and observation. I have work experience in the PPC department but I never thought of writing a book on this subject.
Planning is the key component for the success in business. Especially in the manufacturing sector, production planning and control plays an import role meeting an organization’s goal in delivering goods on time. When it comes to garment manufacturing, as it is mostly an unorganized sector, company management does not care much about production planning part. As a result, PPC department is missing in many of the garment manufacturing companies.
On the other hand, this is also true that like industrial engineering, GMT, and merchandising there are no formal courses in production planning and control. Factories don't have any place to hire a production planning graduate from. So planners learn everything related to PPC from by doing the jobs and grow.
This is a knowledge and resource book in production planning and control areas.
In a nutshell, in this book, I have explained production planning procedures, PPC activities, and PPC tools that I used to use in practice. I will walk you through all relevant knowledge required in planning your production activities and controlling the plan efficiently.
