Abstract : The independent nature of current scheduling methodology can lead to conflict and inefficiences. Short term production schedules may not be consistent with daily operational capabilities. Thus, establishing a formal link between long-term, short-term, and daily planning procedures would ensure consistency and can result in more efficient operations. Hierarchical production planning and scheduling is proposed to formally link long-term, short term, and daily planning tasks.
