There has been much discussion on the merits of differentproduction control philosophies, particularly MRPII, OPT and JIT. Aconsensus is emerging that these philosophies are not mutuallyexclusive, and some companies are beginning to mix and match differentapproaches to meet their particular needs. The design of hybridproduction control systems requires the establishment of a theory ofproduction control that embraces, but is independent of, thewelldefined philosophies of MRPII, OPT and JIT. Without such anunderstanding of production control there is no framework within whichto build hybrid production control systems. Five universal principles ofproduction control are set out, and it is shown how these principles canbe used to construct the Integrated Production Control IPC Model. Thismodel provides the conceptual framework necessary for the design ofhybrid production control systems. The relationships of MRPII, OPT, andkanban, the classical JIT scheduling system, are explored, and areas ofstrength and weakness identified.
