Production planning is by nature a very simple task. However, traditional production planning systems and notions make these systems very complex and unproductive as decisions are being made too early in the manufacturing process. This chapter presents a different approach, one that introduces flexibility to the manufacturing process where routing is a variable and each order is treated as a unit. Therefore bottlenecks cannot be created and disruptions are resolved automatically.
