Literature survey, Report 87.3.TL.2257, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.

Different concepts of production control can only be compared when the structure of the production organization is known. Therefore first give a bird's eye view of several structures of production organization is presented. Secondly, the flexible production automation is discussed.

Then the production control among the production divisions will be examined, for example the series production of compound products. These production chains require high demands of material supplies for each of the production divisions.

Finally the production control within a single division will be handled. Central attention will be given to the Job-shop production because the production proces of this structure is the most difficult to control.
