In manufacturing engineering, product design, process planning and production planning activities are often considered independently. However, in order to effectively respond to changes in business situations, such as changes in demand forecast, product mix and technology, it is desirable to consider them concurrently. For this purpose, a large-scale linear programming model has been developed. The model considers minimization of the sum of processing cost, late shipment cost and inventory holding cost as the objective, and concurrently selects product designs, and generates process plans and production plans. The number of columns in the formulation can be large and, hence, an efficient column generation scheme is developed to solve the model. The model and solution procedure are illustrated with examples.

Multidimensional classification approach for defining product line engineering transition strategies Tekinerdogan, B.; Tüzün, E.; Şaykol, E. (2010)It is generally acknowledged that the transitioning process to a product line engineering approach is not trivial and as such requires a planned transition process. Different classifications of transition strategies have ...
