Part of the Chapman & Hall Materials Management/Logistics Series book series (COMMS)


Production control is a service-oriented activity that balances the needs of manufacturing handling, marketing, finance, engineering, and other departments. Many principles and techniques are used by these departmental managers to control operations, but production control focuses on procedures, inputs for the planning and control of manufacturing resources, including facilities, personnel, and materials.
