Part of the Produktion und Logistik book series (PL)


In the previous chapter, it became clear that the General Lot-sizing and Scheduling Problem for Multiple Production Stages (GLSPMS) fits best the requirements for solving the problem of shifting bottlenecks in the consumer goods industry. Unfortunately, the GLSPMS shows a few shortcomings which are pinpointed next in the first section. Afterwards an improved formulation resolving these shortcomings will be given in Section 4.2. Finally, the properties of the improved GLSPMS will be discussed and first computational results will be presented in Sections 4.3 and 4.4, respectively.
