Production and Distribution


Production and distribution are either both performed within an organization, or else one of the functions is outsourced to reduce the overall cost and allow organizations to focus on core competencies. Production is defined as an operation of work performed on goods to make them available for consumption. Distribution encompasses the activities involved in delivering products or services to customers. Every company that handles production or distribution processes faces specific challenges, such as the following:

Sales and Operations Planning Part One: Identifying and Forecasting Demand


An effective sales and operations planning game plan results in fewer stock-outs, shorter delivery lead-times, higher on-time shipping percentages, a manageable amount of expediting, and improved customer service. Several guidelines are suggested to improve a firm's sales and operations planning process and the effectiveness of each product's game plan. This is an excerpt from the book Managing Your Supply Chain Using Microsoft Navision.

production forecasting  set is termed a production forecast. Planning calculations only use the set of forecast data identified on the manufacturing setup screen. Multiple sets of forecast data often reflect various scenarios for simulation purposes, or forecast revisions based on changing market conditions. A set of forecast data can be copied to a new set and subsequently revised. This approach supports comparison of actual demand to a selected set of forecasted demand.

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad. Consequently, local manufacturing companies are facing global competition, forcing them to adopt new concepts with respect to people, process and technologies. This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution. The software solution (Production/3) combines both pull and push techniques and enables small to medium size organizations to fully automate their production system while retaining their investment in their legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.
