Abstract

In the context of production, the planning phase is broken down hierarchically into different levels: strategic, tactical and operational. The production plan at the tactical level determines the quantities of products to make by time period. Its objectives are:
  • to satisfy the customers’ requirements, that is to say to supply the customer with the product he wants, in the desired quantity and at the desired date,

  • to balance continuously the existing resources and the resources necessary for production, by avoiding underloading as well as overloading,

  • to ensure production at lowest cost or at least with maximum profitability.
