Fine planning or detailed planning is the short-term allocation of production equipment with production orders taking into account definite capacities. Members of the team are able in the process here for example, to independently prioritize orders.
The goal is for the best possible utilization of existing capacity as well as to respond appropriately to changing demands. Efficient scheduling therefore requires both quick responsiveness and flexibility.
In many cases the optimal use of operational equipment is also part of the fine or detailed planning.
