Logistic- and Cost-Oriented Cross-Company Ramp-Up Planning
Shorter product life cycles and quicker innovation cycles entail frequent product replacements or substitutions. Due to additional aspects like a simultaneous engineering beyond company borders, the production ramp-up process becomes significantly important and more and more complex. Existing planning approaches to support the ramp-up process predominantly assume individual cases and are limited to one company or component. Regarding the supply chain as one unit, this approach may lead to logistical as well as economical inefficiencies. Hence, a method is required that enables companies to arrange and to accomplish a logistic- and cost-oriented cross-company ramp-up process in a stable and reproducible manner. A suitable approach for an efficient scheduling is the use of a ramp-up reference model which is described in the following paper.
