About the Course

This online self-study course explores the different types of manufacturing environments in which a production scheduling system must operate with particular emphasis on process production environments.

Course Description

This course reviews manufacturing resource planning (MRP II), in the form of master production scheduling (MPS), in order to provide a rudimentary baseline for how a production schedule is developed. Process flow scheduling (PFS) is described as one alternative to MRP II systems that is particularly suited to process industries. Finally, various forms of scheduling logic, such as just- in-time (JIT), material requirements planning (MRP), theory of constraints (TOC) and process flow scheduling (PFS), are compared.

Topics covered include:

  • Characteristics of manufacturing environments that impact scheduling system design and decisions
  • Specific and unique challenges faced by process and consumer goods manufacturers
  • Master production scheduling methodology and rough-cut capacity planning
  • Process flow scheduling principles and methodology
  • Comparison of the scheduling logic used in JIT, MRP, TOC, and PFS systems
