Abstract. In this paper, we review some well-known manufacturing planning and
control (MPC) systems and models, and highlight both their advantages and ma-
jor drawbacks. The analysis indicates that various important planning and control
problems, as they arise in industry, are not properly addressed by current MPC
systems. A well-known production system typology, illustrated by industrial ex-
Next, we define a basic framework architecture for planning and control in both
make-to-stock and make-to-order systems. The emphasis in this framework is on an
integration of technological and logistics planning, and on an integration of capac-
ity planning and materials coordination issues. In addition to this architecture, we
