In this report, the use of mathematical models and mathematical techniques for solving design and planning problems in industrial production systems is discussed. We describe several projects carried out in different Philips factories. Topics include design problems in an (automated) manufacturing system, production planning and inventory management in a Telecommunication company, and shopfloor scheduling problems in a cable factory. In addition, we briefly list a number of research activities, motivated by these projects, which take place at the Eindhoven University of Technology.
