A wide variety of functions either comprise or interface with a Production Planning and Control (PPC) system. Some place demands on the system; some place constraints; some produce the the action; some monitor events and may initiate corrective demands; some monitor passively in order to compile records. Such a wide spectrum of interests normally results in conflicting demands being made on the PPC system, the satisfactory resolution of such conflicts and the design of an efficient system is at the same time difficult and vitally important.

This paper represents an attempt to clarify the scope of a normal PPC system, to structure its tasks and objectives, to outline the interfaces with other functions and activities, to to discuss some of the more obvious problems and to suggest the need for, and form of, some standards.
