Production planning helps companies achieve their goals, ensure everything is running smoothly, and adjust operations immediately when errors occur.

The production planning process involves the development of a strategy for the realization of the products, which includes all the stages, resources and procedures involved in the production phase, from the assessment of demand to the purchase of raw materials, the establishment of the workforce and all necessary machinery and equipment. And the main objective is to ensure the delivery of products to customers in a prompt and efficient way, optimizing the consumption of resources at the same time.

Production planning helps to optimize the use of resources (labor and equipment) and reduce production costs. In addition, it provides a clear picture of what needs to be produced and when. Through effective planning, manufacturing companies can maintain a balance between supply and demand, avoiding overstock or stock shortage situations, and a well-designed production plan contributes to improving product quality by ensuring rigorous control of production processes.
