Background: Planning and scheduling of manufacturing enterprises require to be rapid and accurate, which makes the traditional enterprise resource planning system hard to meet the needs of enterprises.
Objective: This paper dedicates to introducing the theory of constraints and expounding the control methods for production planning and scheduling.
Method: The main characteristics of the advanced planning and scheduling system are analyzed. Then, the modeling method based on the theory of constraints is used to study the scheduling path.
Results: An example is given to validate the scheduling model and realize the optimization of production tasks on the bottleneck resources.
Conclusion: The feasibility of the advanced planning and scheduling methods based on the theory of constraints is proved.
