Advanced Planning in Fresh Food Industries: Integrating by Matthias Lütke Entrup

By Matthias Lütke Entrup

Construction making plans in clean nutrition industries is a tough activity. even though glossy complicated making plans and Scheduling (APS) platforms may supply major help, APS implementation numbers in those industries stay low. for that reason, in accordance with an in-depth research of 3 pattern clean nutrients industries (dairy, clean and processed meat), the writer evaluates what APS structures should still supply in an effort to successfully aid creation making plans and the way the top structures at present deal with the main distinguishing attribute of clean nutrition industries, the fast product shelf existence. ranging from the pointed out weaknesses, personalized software program suggestions for every of the pattern industries are proposed that let to optimize the creation of unpolluted meals with admire to shelf existence. The publication thereby bargains invaluable insights not just to researchers but in addition to software program companies of APS structures and execs from clean foodstuff industries.

Advanced Planning in Fresh Food Industries: Integrating Shelf Life into Production Planning (Contributions to Management Science)

Construction making plans in clean foodstuff industries is a not easy activity. even supposing sleek complicated making plans and Scheduling (APS) platforms may provide major aid, APS implementation numbers in those industries stay low. as a result, in keeping with an in-depth research of 3 pattern clean meals industries (dairy, clean and processed meat), the writer evaluates what APS platforms should still supply so as to successfully help creation making plans and the way the best structures presently deal with the main distinguishing attribute of clean meals industries, the quick product shelf existence.

The PS module considers a variety of constraints or manufacturing rules such as changeover times, routing requirements, resource preferences, or demand priorities (Davies et al. 2002). g. reducing makespan, the sum of or the maximum lateness, or the sum of flow or setup times). g. reducing variable production costs, setup costs or penalty costs) can also be integrated. To solve the planning problem, APS systems use rather simple heuristics (Tempelmeier 1999a). Three types are usually available: x x x Constraint Programming is a technique to compute feasible (not always optimal) solutions to combinatorial decision problems by solving constraint satisfaction problems consisting of variables, domains and constraints.

APS systems are particularly suited to support ATP due to their high processing speed (Werner 2002b). In the traditional approach of order promising, orders were quoted against production lead-time if there is no inventory available. This has led to infeasible quotes as supply or capacity constraints have not been considered (Kilger and Schneeweiss 2002a). According to Fischer (2001), the ATP approach of contemporary APS systems can be structured around four activities: First, the checking of Product Availability is the core of the ATP module.

Carrier Selection allows one to choose from several carriers and usually includes an Internet-based tendering process. Most APS systems apply a combination of heuristics and LP/MILP procedures to solve the planning problem. The planner can intervene by means of a user interface to integrate specific load optimization strategies (Davies et al. 2002). Several additional features are available within specific APS solutions. Some examples include tracking and tracing functions (Bergmann and Rawlings 1998; Lang 2002a) or even a cargo revenue-maximizing assistant to sell overcapacities (Davies et al.
