Production planning and control refers to two strategies that work cohesively throughout the manufacturing process. Production planning involves what to produce, when to produce it, how much to produce, and more. A long-term view of production planning is necessary to fully optimize the production flow.
Production control uses different control techniques to reach optimum performance from the production system to achieve throughput targets.
In this course you will learn the basic concepts of Production, Manufacturing processes, selection of apt system for optimizing inventory, Product management to advanced planning and control techniques as such lot sizing, EOQ method, Order size calculation, Break-even analysis, Assembly line balancing and many more.
Most suitable for students belonging to mechanical engineering, management, Industrial engineering, Production technology and Manufacturing science. Furthermore, this course covers all the topics for university students having PPC as one of the subjects or a part of Industrial engineering and for ambitious Production managers employed in various industries.
Why should you take this course
- Many students find it difficult to settle in a industry even if they are academically skilled. This course brings out about everything that is required for a GET (Graduate Engineering Trainee) or DET (Diploma Engineering Trainee) prior to their industrial exposure.
- The course contains explanation of certain industrial management tools as such MRP, Inventory control, Lot sizing etc which becomes very handy for those professionals who wants to show their mettle in the industry. All these tools are very carefully designed and explained in the course.
- Working in an industry is not always field work. You as an engineer is required to show your presentation skills to convey various ideas, issues and solutions. The tools explained in the course would come very handy.
- And last but not the least, you are going to understand the ins and outs of a industry from the viewpoint of a person who joined as a trainee (GET) & made his way up in the ladder to become a production engineer (Me). :)

Who this course is for
- Mechanical engineering students having Industrial engineering as one of their subjects.
- University students having Production planning as one of the subject
- Aspiring Production managers already working in a industry
