Production planning and control (PPC) systems are deployed to enable the effective management of variation and uncertainty. In spite of the advancement in technology such as big data and artificial intelligence, the complimentary roles of human and system is becoming more apparent. This paper explores the human-PPC relationship from the perspective of trust. This is done by investigating a recent successful PPC implementation in an SME. In relation to this case the concept of trust is explored as a psychological state and it is suggested that trust appropriation is a continuous process achievable through the leveraging of the basis of trust: purpose, process and performance.
