Adaptive Production Planning and Control – Elements and Enablers of Changeability

  • H.-H. Wiendahl
Part of the Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing book series (SSAM)


Rapid changes are characterizing the market and supply situation of manufacturing companies. Changeability ensures their ability to act successfully in this environment. Logistics is one topic of changeability and in particular Production Planning and Control (PPC). This chapter presents a framework to design a changeable PPC system and discusses the relevant enablers for changeability as well as required change processes. Examples illustrate how to achieve PPC changeability.
