Production planning problem

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Production in large firms with a centralized decision-making unit usually involves the contribution of several individual units. Supermarket chains or organizations with several workshops include more than one unit in which each unit contributes to a part of the entire production. For example, a sales plan is decided by a bank’s cooperate management for its divisions regarding the number of credit cards to be issued and the number of loans to be processed. The central division defines a plan to optimize the average or overall production performance in the entire organization after planning. In this chapter, a production-planning problem which is regularly faced by the central decision-making units is illustrated. Two planning ideas, proposed by Du et al. (2010), are discussed to arrange new input and output plans for all specific units when demand deviations can be predicted.
