PT. UNINDO, a Joint Venture company between France and Indonesia is a transformer manufacturer company that one of its products is power transformer. PT. UNINDO strive to meet customer satisfaction in terms of optimization production planning and control. The idea is for the production activities that take place in the enterprise can be implemented properly so as to achieve the target, which includes the timeliness of production. During this PT. UNINDO always do planning for transformer production time by using the time schedule. In this case there is no clear determination of the activity in the manufacture of transformers. This has led to production planning and control did not reach the target. Because there is no specification of time then there are often delays in production time. Therefore, standardization transformer production turnaround time is required, where the standard turnaround time of production processes associated with the transformer production accuracy. Network Planning is a method to help control a project in the form of network diagram that contains information about the activities in it. CPM is a method of network planning, where once created and the time required, after that set a critical path that can affect the overall project activities. Before planning network implemented by the method of CPM (critical path method), the company does not know the activities that are sensitive to delay, so the company was not problematic to allow some activities delayed for some time, though these activities are in a critical path that can affect the overall project activities. Once implemented network planning with CPM (critical path method), company can observe what activities are in the critical path, so that companies can pay more attention to such activities and prevent delays to the overall project activities . By using the time schedule of the company, obtained the total production time for 50 days. By using network planning with CPM method then can get the total production time for 44 days.
