Abstract or Summary
  • The focus of this research is to design and develop a microcomputer-based information management and production planning system for a discrete parts manufacturing facility. The information management module is based on relational database concepts. This information is used by the scheduling module to generate initial production schedules based on manufacturing due dates. Appropriate user interfaces are provided to manage the databases and to help the user to refine the schedule to satisfy specific preferences. Additionally, automatic heuristic procedures are developed for work load balancing and schedule refinement. An integrated system is developed for a single-stage production process with significant fluctuations in demand caused by the inherent randomness of the product orders. The information management module is implemented using the database software package, dBASE III PLUS and the work load balancing procedures are implemented in Microsoft C. The heuristic procedures are analyzed to evaluate their relative performance. The system has been implemented for A-dec Inc., Newberg, Oregon, a major dental clinical equipment manufacturer.
