Abstract [en]

Purpose of this paper

The purpose is to map the production planning process in process industries and analyze how it is related to their specific planning conditions and available literature. Further on the research aim at detecting similarities and differences in production planning at tactical level.

Design/methodology/approach

The research methodology has an embedded multi-case design with focus on planning processes involving several entities within the companies. Information sources are documentation and interviews.

Findings

Process industries with different structures and conditions plan production differently. For instance a difference has been found between how material dominated companies plan compared to capacity dominated ones.

Research limitations/implications

Focus in this research has been on production planning at tactical level and therefore the strategic and operational level has mainly been left out of the study.

What is original/value of paper

The research gives insights in production planning processes for process industries and presents ideas on why the different production planning processes are designed as they are according some specific conditions.
