Regulating production so that products flow smoothly and quickly to meet customer requirements. 

At Toyota, the Production Planning Department grew to become the most important link in the company: it screwed up the pace of production when there was a backlog and slowed down production when it was ahead. At most mass production companies, this works differently; there, the Production Planning department is responsible for isolated tasks, such as MRP and logistics.
