   Production Planning may be said to be a 
technique of forecasting ahead every step in the 
long process of production, taking them at right 
time and in the right degree and trying to 
complete operations at the maximum efficiency
   
   In the words of Kimball and Kimball Jr –
  “The planning of industrial operations involves 
four considerations, namely, what work shall 
be done, how the work shall be done and 
lastly, when the work shall be done.”

   Production control is the process that keeps a 
watchful eye on the production flow and size of 
resources along with the location, of any deviation 
from the present action and to arrange for the 
prompt adjustment so that the production may run 
according to the original or revised schedule
 
   In the words of Henry Fayol –
   “Production control refers to ensuring that all 
which occurs is in accordance with the rules 
established and instructions issued.”
