Abstract [en]

Production planning is probably the least understood aspect of manufacturing planning and control. However, payoffs from a well-designed production planning system are large. The aim of production planning process is to produce only as much as required, but at the same time maintain the productivity levels of resources. The ability to account for variabilities in the production process plays a key role in effective production planning. Most companies use software packages to simplify the production planning process. These systems are called manufacturing planning and control systems (MPC systems). Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a strategic tool, which equips the enterprise with necessary capabilities to integrate and synchronise isolated functions into streamlined business progresses. The purpose of this research is to compare SAP R/3 with MPC systems and then identify possible advantages. The identified advantages are the level of integration, real time processing and a very high number of functionalities.
