The Effectiveness of Several Performance Bounds for Capacitated Production, Partial-Order-Service, Assemble-to-Order Systems

We consider an assemble-to-order (ATO) system: Components are made to stock by production facilities with finite capacities, and final products are assembled only in response to customers’ orders. The key performance measures in this system, such as order fill rates, involve evaluation of multivariate probability distributions, which is computationally… CONTINUE READING
