◦Resource requirements planning (RRP)◦Rough-cut capacity plan (RCCP)◦Capacity requirements planning (CRP)◦Aggregate production plan (APP)◦Master production schedule (MPS)◦Materials requirements plan (MRP)As production operations become more and more complex - receiving inputs from a widervariety of suppliers, producing goods in smaller batches, and delivering a larger range of outputs - technology is needed to keep the facility running at peak performace. (Coyle, Langley, Novack, & Gibson, 2017).Manufacturers across all industries understand the importance of sharing real-time information across their extended manufacturing and supply chain network. Enhanced manufacturing visibility helps an organizatin improve its operations, synchronize processes with suppliers, and provide better customer service. These organizations are using manufacturing execution systems (MES) to link ERP systems and supply chain applications to ensure that operations are being managed in real time. (Coyle, Langley, Novack, & Gibson, 2017).The MES functions as follows: the system receives an order from the ERP system and then makes an intelligent decision on where to produce the orders. This decision is baed on facility capabilities, capacity, and price. Next, the MES publishes the intructions for thebest way to manufacture the product for the parties involved in the manufacturing process. Finally, the details of production performance are tracked via KPIs and dashboards in real time, allowing managers or the system to react to changes and problems in a timely fashion. (Coyle, Langley, Novack, & Gibson, 2017).
