Within production planning and control (PPC), orders are usually steered according to the production goal system. The priority rules are derived from production. The efficiency of these rules for goal-oriented control is often questioned. Besides this procedure itself can affect conflicts with the goals of other divisions and can also negatively affect the total result of the company, usually with a time-delay. In this article a concept for a knowledge-based system is to be discussed, which helps in overcoming many problems in order to approach the goal of a holistic planning and controlling process of production more closely.
