Production management is defined as the planning and control of all activities necessary to produce a set of products. For a typical metalworking job shop type of company, production management thus comprises important functions such as:
Product development and technological planning
Production planning and control
Materials planning and control
- Machine Tool
- Cellular Manufacturing
- User Participation
- Material Planning
- Stock Control
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
