Production Planning and Control (PP)

SAP Production Planning and Control Module offers the information for the decision makers of replenishing materials required in a production process and captures the efficiency of materials consumption and machine usage in that process.
SAP Production Planning and Control consists of two basic areas:
Production Planning: Production planning is a tool for medium to long term planning. The basic objective of the production planning is to ensure the availability of raw, packing and auxiliary materials (production supplies) against the sales forecast for a given period. Production planning tool also checks the availability of capacity to meet the sales targets in a given period. Production plans could differ from the sales plans in case of capacity constraints.
Production Control: It is a tool for short term planning or more precisely daily planning. In Production Control detailed production schedules for the manufacturing of semi-finished and finished materials are created highlighting the precise start and finish dates of a production run using the machine capacities. Each production run is assigned a batch number and raw or packing materials required are issued for one particular batch.  Once a production run is completed, it completion is also recorded in the production control module.
As an integrated tool, the process in Production Planning and Control requires data from various sources, i.e. Financial Accounting (FI), Controlling (CO), Materials Management (MM), Quality Management (QM), Plant Maintenance (PM) and Sales and Distribution (SD). The production processes include stock movement and simultaneously provide data for product costing.
