Once the production plan is place, it is necessary to provide more granularity for the Production department as to what is to be made, the quantity, and when they are to be produced.
The Master Production Schedule (MPS) not only provides for a higher level of detail, but it is developed by integrating several different pieces of information simultaneously.
This scheduling process supports the company’s mission and objectives by producing products when customers request them and usually does so economically when executed properly.
Below is a snapshot of the Master Production Schedule for a finished good, SBC-0500-4401.
