      Production management is a process
of managing people and resources in order to produce products and provide services.

There are in general two components regarding production management – planning and execution.
Planning is a cross-functional process of making long-range, medium-range, and short-range decisions based on management targets for production, sales and inventory levels subject to operational constraints. The goal is to match supply with demand.

Execution is how products are made. The key concern is to utilize resources based on production plans. This subject is important to managers since it is one of the major supply-chain risks identified by organizations.

The inventory status data were structured to provide a common data format for both current status and forecasting. This fully operational system was developed to satisfy specific solid-state management requirements. This system was organized in a general manner for flexibility and change and could be modified to be used as a management information system for other types of operations.
