Tutor description

Manufacturing planning and control address decisions on the acquisition, utilization and allocation of production resources to satisfy customer requirements in the most efficient and effective way. Typical decisions include work force level, production lot sizes, assignment of overtime and sequencing of production runs. Optimization models are widely applicable for providing decision support in this context.

Manufacturing Planning and ControlStephen C. GravesMassachusetts Institute of TechnologyNovember 1999Manufacturing planning and control entails the acquisition and allocation of limitedresources to production activities so as to satisfy customer demand over a specified timehorizon. As such, planning and control problems are inherently optimization problems,where the objective is to develop a plan that meets demand at minimum cost or that fillsthe demand that maximizes profit. The underlying optimization problem will vary due todifferences in the manufacturing and market context. This chapter provides a frameworkfor discrete-parts manufacturing planning and control and provides an overview ofapplicable model formulations.1Manufacturing Planning and ControlStephen C.

Optimization models arewidely applicable for providing decision support in this context.In this article we focus on optimization models for production planning for discrete-parts,batch manufacturing environments. We do not cover detailed scheduling or sequencingmodels (e. g., Graves, 1981), nor do we address production p
