Abstract

This paper aims to demonstrate how human factor played an essential role in the design and implementation of a production planning and control (PPC) system to improve a company's operating performance. Although various operations management (OM) concepts, tools and techniques have been introduced by academia, the disconnection between academia and actual practice is still apparent. The importance of 'contextual knowledge' in introducing an intervention refers not only to the 'technical', but also to the 'socio' aspect of the system. Balance is achieved by considering the 'fit' between OM concepts and technology, as well as the human/social and organisational aspect in introducing a practical PPC system.
