Item description for Practical Production Control: A Survival Guide for Planners and Schedulers by Kenneth N. McKay & Vincent C. S. Wiers...
Clearly defining the challenges of daily production control, Practical Production Control: A Survival Guide for Planners and Schedulers is a soup-to-nuts, practical guide and desk reference that gives you the skill set required to meet today's real-world challenges. It explains how the scheduling task can be decomposed and organized; how the production control department can be structured; how to hire, train, and evaluate schedulers; how scheduling changes with the life cycle of the product and processes within the plant; and how software tools can be used to augment the scheduler's skill.
Most books on this subject describe production control from an idealistic perspective. This book describes real planning and scheduling --- what a scheduler needs to think about when he or she gets into the office, when the boss asks for something impossible, and when the information received is not correct. Taking you behind closed doors, into the factory at 6:00 am, behind the scheduler's desk, and into the planning meetings, this book explores how to identify limiting factors for improved production control and provides a number of techniques for taking production control to the next level. While developed primarily for planners and schedulers, most any manufacturing or supply chain professional will gain value from this book.
