Minor in Production Planning and Control

Production planning and control are of central importance in many domains of engineering activity. These functions are likely to assume even more significance as focus in production shifts towards creating more value for the customer and design and manufacturing become integrated. The Production Planning and Control minor program provides the necessary basic concepts in required courses and then allows more specialization through elective courses. It will be useful to students who want to complement their training with an organization-wide understanding of the processes and problems of production.
