Planning and Scheduling in the Process Industry

  title={Planning and Scheduling in the Process Industry},
  author={Mario Stobbe and Thomas L{\"o}hl and Christian Schulz and Sebastian Engell}
Usually, planning means the generation of production tasks for longer periods of time, given forecasts for prices and product demands. In contrast, scheduling means the assignment of resources to activities, sequencing of activities and determination of starting respectively ending times for the execution over a short period of time. Planning and scheduling are closely related as the decisions made at the planning level have a strong influence on scheduling. Ideally, the availability of… CONTINUE READING
