Aggregate production planning (APP) is a medium-term capacity planning to determine the quantity of production, inventory and work force levels to satisfy fluctuating demand over a planning horizon. The goal is to minimize costs and instabilities in the work force and inventory levels. This paper is concentrated on multi-period, multi-product and multi-machine systems with setup decisions. In this study, we develop a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model for general two-phase aggregate… CONTINUE READING
