        What is PPIC?

        PPIC is the practice of planning the manufacturing process and controlling the inventory of raw materials to be produced into finished goods. It is also a department in a manufacturing company that is responsible for planning and controlling a series of processes. As well as make sure they run according to a predetermined plan.

        The PPIC department must work side by side with several other departments such as sales, procurement, and finance. Duties of a PPIC manager include:

        1. Create production schedules and manufacturing orders and estimate inventory requirements.
        2. Review sales forecasts and customer demand and schedule production batches based on inventory levels and production times.
        3. Make a procurement plan based on the demand forecast that has been done previously.
        4. Monitor inventory during the production process, goods stored in the warehouse, as well as incoming and outgoing goods.
        5. Scheduling the production process according to the planned time, route, and quantity, to speed up order fulfillment.
        6. Ensuring the optimization of machine productivity so that there is no overuse of production machines or it’s useless.
        7. Help solve problems related to the production process through communication with the marketing department.
        8. Analyze capacity and resource requirements and coordinate necessary adjustments.
        9. Ensure adequate levels of raw materials and finished goods.

        • The level of raw materials required for production will always be sufficient
        • The production process runs according to schedule and consumer demand can be fulfilled on time
        • Machines and equipment can be used optimally
        • Better collaboration between sales (or marketing), procurement, and finance departments. Through systematic production planning, on-demand inventory levels, and accurate inventory reports
