Abstract

Computer executable modelling approaches have significant roles to play in enabling decision-making in dynamic manufacturing organisations especially in relation to engineer its production planning and control (PPC) system. In order to understand the system prior to selection of any PPC strategy, multiple process segments of organisations need to be modelled. The paper outlines key PPC strategies and describes a novel systematic approach for creating coherent sets of unified models that facilitate engineering of PPC strategies. Information models can form a key element within enterprise models (EMs) to enable decision making in engineering of PPC strategies. Case study information models are presented to enable the PPC decision-making process in support of complex organisation design and change (OD&C). The paper outlines key areas for future research including the need for research into unified modelling approaches and interoperation of partial models in support of complex OD&C.
