Modeling the Production Planning and Control System using UML
Production planning and control systems are known for their complexity, especially for large scale production units. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is known for its efficiency in modeling such complex systems for better visualization and as an initial step for software implementation. In this paper, UML is utilized to model production planning and control systems. The models developed include functional, and behavioral models represented through a use case diagram, an activity diagram, and a communication diagram. The proposed models serve as the first step towards implementing a software for production planning and control systems. © 2020 IEEE.
