Robust resource allocation planning

Robust resource allocation planning in special purpose machinery

Operational production planning in special purpose machinery is marked by high uncertainty, caused by information dynamics and disturbances. Against this background a planning approach for the calculation of a robust resource allocation plan will be developed. The approach comprises a concept that integrates the resource allocation planning in the hierarchical planning context, a robust planning method that takes the uncertainty by (simulation based) correction factors into account and an algorithm to solve the resulting planning problem (a hybrid-flow-shop problem with variable-intensity and preemptive operations). To apply the developed planning approach a decision-support-system that focuses usability as well as adaptability will be developed.
