An Approach for Capacity Checking and Due Date Adjustment
K. Altendorfer, H. Jodlbauer - An Approach for Capacity Checking and Due Date Adjustment - Proceedings FH Science Day 2007, Wels, Austria, 2007, pp. 160-167
Motivation: Due date setting and capacity planning
are two of the most important production planning and
control functions because of their high influence on
the service level. In this paper the interrelation between
these two functions will be discussed and an
approach to fulfill these functions will be presented.
The discussed model makes sure that for all of not yet
completed work to finish at a certain due date enough
capacity is available until this due date. The algorithm
works with the cumulated capacity needed at the latest
possible due date for each machine group.
Results: As result, a model for determining the
needed capacity at certain work centers or capacity
groups will be presented as well as an approach to set
due dates. Further, an example where this approach is
already implemented in a company is presented.
