The Planning Process Integration Influence on the Efficiency of Material Flow in Production Companies
In the article, the authors present the results of the research on the planning process integration influence on the efficiency of material flow in production companies. In order to identify the influence the authors developed their own planning process integration model based on the Sales and Operations Planning (SOP) approach. Four planning process integration levels were qualitatively defined at the tactical level and were modelled in the simulation environment. The levels were applied to plan material flow in a production company. The flow efficiency was measured by means of the following indicators: customer service level and return on sales. The simulation study results made it possible to confirm that the planning process integration has a positive influence on material flow in production companies.
