Abstract

Cyclical production planning is popular in real-life because of its organisational benefits. We study the application and performance of cyclical production planning in a complex stochastic production-inventory system with job shop routings. We propose a decision-support system that allows computing cost efficient cyclical production plans. Insights on the applicability and performance of cyclical production planning are obtained from an extensive simulation study in which the cyclical approach is compared with a state-of-the-art non-cyclical approach.
