Manufacturing companies often complain about the difficulties in meeting customers' logistic requirements. Many blame the production planning and control (PPC) software for the perceived performance deficiencies. This paper illustrates why this only accounts for part of the problem. a holistic PPC configuration includes the six aspects of targets, functions, objects, processes, positions and tools. Based on the requirements for an ideal PPC configuration, the paper identifies a list of typical stumbling blocks. Analyzing them from the perspectives of the individual aspects will explain the deficiencies and indicate possible solutions. Finally the paper describes a procedure for identifying stumbling blocks in practice and how to overcome them.
