Abstract

Increasing global competition is forcing manufacturing companies to focus on high product quality, low production costs and quick response to fluctuating market demands. The ability to respond quickly to customer demands, rapid changes in the market environment and new technological advances are key competitive factors. Among the most important activities influencing this ability are production planning and scheduling.
