A deterministic concurrent product, production, and capacity planning model for design, manufacture, and support

MetadataShow full item record
This research shows that a model that concurrently determines product, production, and capacity can provide better results than a model that makes these decisions sequentially. Three versions of a life-cycle complete concurrent model and corresponding sequential model that solve product, production, and capacity planning problems are mathematically formulated and compared through an hypothetical example. All versions of the concurrent and sequential models consider three types of work centers and corresponding types of capital budgeting projects.
