Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present an approach for the integration of production and transport logistics in one original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and to compare its performance with a sequential procedure. Herein, delays in fulfilling delivery due dates in both non-disturbed and disturbed (with oscillating transport time) scenarios will be analysed through a simulation model. The major findings demonstrate that the proposed integrative approach outperforms the sequential one in the absorption of perturbations that can delay the production and transport of orders in production facilities along a supply chain.
