For the past 20 years production planning and control has been dominated by manufacturing resource planning (MRPII) and its antecedents. The authors are completing case study based research that is aimed at developing novel planning and scheduling reference models for industrial sectors where the MRPII paradigm is not appropriate. It outlines the process mapping approach adopted for data capture within the case study companies and the use of ARIS, Scheer’s enterprise modelling tool, for the production of sector reference models
