SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte  --  Production planning and control address fundamental problems on low productivity, inventory management, and resource utilization.

A manufacturing enterprise’s operations can be called profitable when there are no losses in the production expenses, the inventory is well-managed, and the capacities of the production equipment are fully utilized.

The Provincial Science and Technology Office - Surigao del Norte of DOST-Caraga successfully trained a batch of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the province on production planning and control via Zoom. 

The technology training aims to educate the MSMEs in Surigao del Norte on how to plan production releases, implement the production plan, control the workflow, measure the production data, and determine how to prepare for changes.

The resource person, Engr. Andre Paolo B. Lim, a senior executive consultant of Summit Consultancy and Research Services, discussed the different levels of planning and control which include (1) business planning, (2) production planning, (3) master production scheduling, (4) material/capacity requirements planning, and (5) production activity control. 

Types of production flow which are continuous and intermittent flows were also highlighted. A continuous production flow is a product-oriented type of workflow which follows a fixed sequence of steps, for example, rice milling. 

An intermittent type is a functionally oriented workflow wherein products move in batches through specific departments for a particular operation, one example is metal fabrication. The combination of continuous and intermittent workflows is known to be the most common type of workflow used in manufacturing.

DOST continues to work as one in making science and technology available and accessible for the people. Be first to be updated of our significant events and S&T opportunities to bank knowledge and gain professional growth.
