Modeling the Master Plan for Supply Chains with Lack of Homogeneity in the Products
Master Planning of Supply Chains (SCs) with Lack of Homogeneity in the Products (LHP) strongly differs from other SCs. Although LHP affects SCs of different sectors, an absence of a common research body exists. In this paper, the characterization of LHP dimensions for Master Planning and their modeling is described. To validate the proposal an application to the fruit SC is presented.
