  • Capacity requirements planning
  • Fixed order quantity models
  • Lead time, safety stocks, and order points
  • Fixed order period models
  • Scheduling and control
  • Assembly line balancing

Learning Outcomes

The student, upon completion of this course, will be able to:

  1. Describe (identify/write) the need to learn about the various functions in production planning and control to better manage manufacturing and/or service systems.
  2. Show (write) how qualitative and quantitative forecasting techniques can be used in short, medium, and long range forecasting.
  3. Develop (write) master production schedules (MPSs) and perform rough-cut capacity planning to determine if the MPSs are realizable.
  4. Develop (write) material requirements plans (MRP-I) and manufacturing resource plans (MRP-II) and capacity requirements plans (CRP) as part of resource requirements planning systems.
  5. Show (write) how various heuristic decision rules can be used to make lot-sizing decisions.
  6. Develop (write) quantitative models to manage independent demand in inventory systems.
  7. Show (write) how various order sequencing rules can be used to improve the performance on the shop floor.
  8. Show (write) how various heuristics can be used to solve industry-size line balancing problems.
  9. Using the concepts of Course Leaning Outcome 2, work as a team of 4-5 students on an open-ended (computer project) problem on financial planning to produce a team-written report to effectively communicate the responses to a series of four questions.
  10. Using the concepts of Course Leaning Outcomes 3-7, work as a team of 4-5 students on an open-ended (term project) problem on the production of three primary products, both with and without machine capacity constraints, to produce a team-written report to effectively communicate the responses to a series of four questions.
