Hierarchical Approach to Production Planning and Scheduling: The Case of a Mosaic Tile Plant
This paper describes a production planning and scheduling model developed for a large mosaic tile plant. The company has over 20 overseas customers. In the ordering process, the company gives a monthly production quota for each customer. The order in which each customer uses his quota is called “fixed date order” because the customer can determine the delivery date by himself. The order that does not use the quota system is called “tentative order” because the customer can only determine the delivery month. The delivery date of this order type will still have to be confirmed by the company.
