Conclusions and Future Research

Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 636)


This section briefly recapitulates the foremost motives of this work and summarizes its main contributions and findings. It complements the conclusions already drawn in Sects. 5.6 and 8.7.

Only a limited number of publications on lot-sizing and scheduling models with substitutions / flexible BOMs exist. The terminologies pertaining to substitutions used in the various publications differed significantly. In addition, there was no classification scheme available for substitution models.
