A Prescriptive Maintenance Aligned Production Planning and Control Reference Process
Wesendrup, Kevin; Hellingrath, Bernd
Digital innovations can improve various business processes, such as production planning and control (PPC). In the last years, prescriptive maintenance (PxM) emerged as a strategy to increase overall production performance, but an alignment of the PPC process with PxM has not been examined yet. To tackle this problem, a PxM-aligned PPC process is designed and evaluated in this study using a reference model development methodology, including a narrative literature review, a multivocal literature review, and eight expert interviews. The reference model shows where process elements benefit from PxM alignment, how alignment can be achieved from a process and output, data, function, and organization view, and where fits and gaps between theory and practice are.
