Production control is primarily the collection of functions and measures that manages all production in a site or area. In concrete terms, production control or production inspection means the comparison of the target data of production planning with the actual data and an analysis of the causes of deviation.
Production control includes quantity and deadline control, quality control (quality assurance), productivity control (e.g. capacity utilization, waste), and cost control. This results in the systematic planning, coordination, and control of all production activities and influences in order to ensure that goods can be produced on time, in appropriate quality, and at reasonable cost.
