The Production Planning team manages the production timeline from order commitment through production execution and delivery. The Planners communicate order commitments to our manufacturers, maintain costing and handle purchase order management. Planners are the main point of contact for agents and manufacturers after orders are committed. Planners will be in communication with the manufacturers regarding any order changes and need to have an up to date knowledge of any product placement or delivery issues so they can anticipate and resolve potential delays.

The main tool the Planners use to streamline communication regarding on time delivery between NPG and Manufacturers is the WIP (Work In Progress Tool). All NPG suppliers are required to maintain and report WIP using the WIP Tool.
