Production planning and control (PPC) system represents a set of decisions on the acquisition, utilization and allocation of resources with the ultimate goal to satisfy customer requirements in the most effective and efficient way. PPC system involves a considerable amount of parameters and synchronizing of a high number of components is a complex process, especially in present business environment where everything has to be decided fast and precisely under an enormous pressure of external factor that undergo through constant change, as so throughout the years a number of methods have been developed with the intention of optimizing the work of PPC systems. One of the methods for optimizing PPC systems which is also used in this case is simulation module for PPC which integrates the parameters involved offering the opportunity of experimenting and analyzing the different possible scenarios in order to find the one that delivers the best possible results without affecting the current actual system and with that reducing the cost and time needed to identify the most optimal solution.
