Abstract

This paper addresses a production planning problem of a central factory network system. Based on two raw material purchase plans, two mix-integer programming models are formulated to minimize total manufacturing time, which consists of transportation time and processing time. In the first model, each raw material type demanded over all items to be manufactured in the factory during a given production period is aggregated. In the second model, the raw materials for each item produced by a factory are ordered separately. These two models integrate the supply factory selection, order size determination, order sequencing, and material handling functions to define a time effective production plan.
