Reference work entry

Periodically on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, a statement of output of a factory is produced and distributed to decision makers. Such a production report includes type and quantity of products provided, efficiency by work center or department, labor hours, overtime used, and so on. The report serves as a feedback and permits corrective action and maintenance.

See  MRP;  Order release;  Production planning and control;  Schedule stability.
