Automated manufacturing systems (AMSs) have the potential for providing a high level of manufacturing performance. Owing to the high cost of capital investment, a high utilization level of AMSs with the help of suitable production planning and control (PPC) is an important feature of AMSs. Realizing the potential of PPC in AMSs, an attempt has been made to review the available techniques/methods for solving the problems of production planning, control and scheduling in AMSs. The need for further research on PPC of AMSs is brought to the fore along with future research directions.
