Impact of forecast horizon on replanning frequencies for a rolling horizon master production schedule

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This study extends previous research on rolling schedules and examines the impact of forecast window interval on replanning frequencies and master production schedule (MPS) performance in a rolling horizon setting. A paint company provided the referent system for this study and the MPS model developed in this paper assumes a deterministic demand environment. Preliminary results indicate that for a three-month forecast window, a two-month replanning frequency provided superior MPS performance in terms of total cost when compared to the other replanning intervals.
