Abstract

This research investigates the interaction of production scheduling and routing/transportation on a logistic network. Basic scheduling rules and existing routing/transportation alternatives were studied using a simulation model, with cost and customer service levels as measures of performance. The simulation model, including network configuration, orders, service times, etc., was based on a `real world' electronic manufacturer, where the production process requires components to flow through three facilities. The two existing routing/transportation alternatives are ocean and air freight. The analysis of the results indicated that certain combinations of scheduling and routing rules result in low manufacturing-logistic costs while maintain high levels of customer service.
