Factors such as changeover time and minimum batch size can lead to significant discrepancies between a production facility’s real capacity and the total capacity assumed by supply planners.

The purpose of the master thesis is to investigate methods that approximate the real production capacity without resorting to production scheduling.

The methods must be able to generate a supply plan that:

  • Is adequate for planning in a multiple echelon supply chain
  • Is unlikely to generate unfeasible production targets
  • Allows to increase capacity utilization of the production facility
