Abstract : Production management in an industrial environment includes monitoring and controlling the various parameters in a manner that would result in the reduction or elimination of wastages, maximisation of machine throughputs, minimisation of overhead expenses, optimisation of energy consumption, controlling the input costs, inventory control etc. The common factor in all these areas is the need to capture relevant by the specific application. The application of informatics to production management got a shot in the arm with the advent of microcomputers. Individual microcomputer machines built around the modern microprocessor chips can now be designed so that from the view point of hardware as well as software, each machine is dedicated to meet the requirements of a specific application and hence does this with least cost and maximum efficiency.
