A production management system for managing production by using a plurality of working devices arranged in the production processes includes a host management device for managing control data necessary for producing a product, working device managing terminals provided in correspondence with working devices used for the production for processing information necessary in managing the working devices, and a terminal information management device for integrally managing information items which are processed at individual working device management terminals. Each working device management terminal is connected with the terminal information management device through a network to enable transfer of information between each working device terminal and the terminal information management device and between individual working device terminals. Further, working device terminals which require transfer of control data held by the terminal information management device and the host management device are connected to the host management device to enable exchanges of information between the connected devices.
