Integrated Production and Logistics Management in the Newspaper Industry


To achieve high customer satisfaction, the main objectives of the newspaper industry are up-to-dateness and punctual delivery of media. The up-to-dateness can be implemented by a late print start, whereas the punctual delivery can be reached by early tour starts and the use of additional vehicles, respectively. This problem is solved by the integration of production and logistics, whereby scheduling and vehicle routing algorithms are applied.
