A New Conceptual Framework for Hierarchically Integrated PPS-Systems

  • Christoph Schneeweiss


Traditional Production Planning and Scheduling (PPS)-Systems have usually been designed to treat rather involved situations like that of a job shop production of the make-to-stock or make-to-order type (e.g. VOLLMANN et al.). Generally, these systems consist of the Master Production Schedule (MPS), the Material Requirements Planning (MRP)-module, the Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP)-module, and the short term job scheduling (sequencing) module (s. Fig. 1).
