Production Planning and Control in Industrial Engineering is a free online course that introduces you to the fundamental theories and applications of Production Planning and Control in industrial engineering. This course will introduce you to the functions, tools, techniques, and applications of capacity planning and scheduling used in industrial engineering. You will also learn about the scope that production planning and control generally covers, as well as the limitations to its applications and the effects of those limitations. You will learn about the different stages of production planning and control and the different activities done under the different stages, as well as aggregate plans and material master production schedules relevant to efficient and effective production of goods and services.
The course describes the organization of production plant facilities to suit the handling of production material while maintaining good cost-effectiveness in production activities for industrial engineers. The course also analyzes Production Planning and Control tools used in ensuring plans are well scheduled and executed in time, along with the important aspects of scheduling in production planning and control which are used in material requirement planning, priority sequencing, loading, and production modeling. You will also be introduced to Network modeling techniques, their associated technologies, along with the calculation of various times, identifying critical paths, and the total project duration using various technologies.
This course will also outline the importance of scheduling and the tools used for scheduling production activities, material requirement planning, priority sequencing and loading, and sequencing jobs to the fundamental principles of industrial engineering. This free online course will be of significant interest to students, researchers, manufacturers, and anyone with an interest in the production of goods and services, and especially industrial engineers working in production plants.
