Abstract: 
Purpose: Main reason for this master thesis is research to define and select convenient method related with Production Planning and Control (PPC) for facilities based on Make to Order (MTO) for a Small Medium Enterprise (SME) with use reviewed theoretical methods. The goal was to increase flexibility and performance of a company towards the customer. In today environment customers every day expect customized products in short lead time, with high quality and of course with competitive price. At first the problems had to be investigated and conducted a literature review where I identified the issues related of production planning and control. The identified issues cause problems for producers, since they are not able to produce such products in high volume of customized parts. Despite that, the selection of an appropriate production planning and control is not simple choice, because many options are offered on the market. Due to the various environmental attributes, PPC methods is compared how they carry out in the contrasting version. Following main PPC methods has been evaluated: S-DBR (Simplified Drum Buffer Rope), KANBAN (It is a scheduling system for lean manufacturing.), CONWIP (Constant Work In Process), DBR (Drum Buffer Rope), POLCA (Paired Overlapping Loop of Cards) and WLC (Workload Control). The production planning and control methods have been described how they are behaving in various frameworks concerning to the manufacturing attributes, and what these methods can support better results for key indicators defined in facility based on Make to Order and how to be more competitive on the global market. Master thesis shows, that S-DBR is highly recommended for companies that would like to reach high due date performance (DDP). Findings: The author identified PPC method, that is suitable for application in SMEs environment for an MTO manufacturing. The paper also informs about the implementation process of S-DBR and how can such simple PPC method improve performance of company in real case.
