The production plan is: precise process control strings, materials and production are no longer difficult!

At present, many enterprises have set up PMC departments, but what they are used for and how to use this command department are not very clear. First of all, PMC is the abbreviation of Production material control. It refers to the supervision and management of production planning and production progress, as well as the planning, tracking, sending and receiving, storage, and use of materials, as well as the prevention and treatment of sluggish materials. The PMC department mainly has two aspects of work content. That is, PC (management of production planning and production schedule) and MC (supervision and management of material planning, procurement, tracking, sending and receiving, storage, use, etc., as well as the prevention and treatment of waste materials). PMC management, the definition and division of labor in domestic companies have different opinions, some focus on production management, and some focus on material management, all determined by the nature of the company. But no matter where you start, it can be classified into PMC management.

PMC management focuses on communication and coordination. Therefore, from the company’s business sales, down to production and shipment, there are procurement, engineering technology and quality control departments in the middle, all of which require PMC to track and coordinate.
