Production Planning and Control are composed of 3 distinct words,
Production- Produce a final end tangible product from raw materials using any conversion process.
Planning- Preparing the resources, such as finances, machine and manpower for the future events
Control- Controlling if the goods and services are being produced according to the plan.
So combining these individual meanings we can define production planning and control as a process to make optimum utilization of time, resources (plant facilities, manpower, raw materials) in order to get the desired quality and quantity of the product in the desired or competitive price at the right time.
