Once work has been assigned to the Production department, it is important to know if the work is being done in a timely manner and according to schedule. This is accomplished by comparing the work completed to the work was planned.
If the work completed does not match what was planned, then it may be necessary to either make new plans or take corrective action on those orders that are not meeting the planned schedule.
It is Production Control’s job to ensure that work orders are meeting customer delivery requirements while simultaneously using the company’s resources as economically as possible.
Below is a snapshot of a common Production Control Work Order algorithm.
