In the base of expert evaluating it was found, that operations planning and control for manufacturing companies has expanded successively over the last 60 years. In this paper is given a historical perspective identifying the main benefits and disadvantages of production planning systems from the first systems focused on material planning to the highly specialized advanced planning and scheduling systems. Process of planning and executing the customer order is divided to many activities and affect the final product. The process should be set properly and be supported with the proper information system.
There is a potential for optimization the process of production planning and control in interconnection to the proper information system. Still, an understanding of how to set the process of production planning and control properly with the information system is unexplored.
