Production Planning and Control
A key support organization that interfaces daily with the Lockheed Martin developmental and production functions. All production information filters through PP&C for analysis and subsequent loading into the Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system for execution. The PP&C organization is integrated with the Supply Chain through three major functions: Program Planning, Operations Planning, and Material & Traffic Control.
Works with Procurement, Manufacturing, and Program Management to develop plans to execute customer requirements. These plans include long and short-term capacity resource and execution planning consisting of developing lot size strategies, time-phased requirements, and storage coordination with the program team/customers.
Works closely with Operations Engineering, Manufacturing and Quality to execute the program schedule and manage the budget. This includes providing status and expediting or creating work around plans to meet schedules.
