Categories: ,

The position of the CODP location is determined by the customer lead time and the cumulative lead time of items in the BOM of end-items. In CTO and ATO environments the customer lead time exceeds the final assembly lead time and possibly the sum of final assembly lead time and module assembly lead time. Yet […]

A major development concerning operational management of companies and networks of companies is the concept of Synchronized Base Stock (SBS) policies. This concept has been implemented at Philips Semiconductors, generating 15 million in additional profits annually, for a period of five years. The SBS concept not only enables far more effective operational material management, it […]

Repair shops in the service logistics sector, and make-to-order environments in general, have difficulties in meeting the on-time delivery target set by management, due to a very fluctuating arrival of repairs. One of the reasons is a mismatch between the workforce capacity and the required capacity levels. In this thesis, a periodic capacity decision model […]

This master thesis describes the challenge of planning manufacturing lead times in unreliable, unbalanced and sequential production systems subject to a target service level. By means of the buffer strategy proposed in this report, time buffers are estimated for attaining a target service level and consequently, enhancing the reliability of internal lead times. This buffer strategy […]

Reverse logistics departments, and make-to-order environments in general, face problems in meeting service level agreements regarding due dates. Main reasons are on the one hand the fluctuating arrivals of returns and on the other hand an inaccurate forecast. A logical consequence is a mismatch between the workforce capacity and the required capacity levels. In this […]
