A Data Aggregation Methodology to Assess the Global Production Capacity of Complex Supply Chains
Nowadays, no decisional tools allow to assess if an unforeseen customers demand variation should be accepted without creating material disruptions among a supply chain or not. The main difficulty consists in aggregating resources capacities, especially if resources perform different tasks with multiple items. This paper then proposes a data aggregation methodology based on graph analysis in order to assess the global production capacity of complex resources networks, like supply chains.
