Order Promising Process for Supply Chains with Lack of Homogeneity in the Product
Traditionally, during the Order Promising Process (OPP), the homogeneity of different available units of the same finished good to be committed to customers has been assumed. However, this assumption is not valid for manufacturing contexts with Lack of Homogeneity in the Product (LHP). In this paper, special LHP-dimensions that affect the OPP are outlined. Based on them, specific LHP availability and allocation rules are defined.
