Online Due Date Strategy on Mass Customization
In order to make response rapidly for customization demand and reduce the cost, this paper studied the due date strategies between MTS stage and MTO stage of mass customization supply chain. We consider the sequencing and due date of a series of orders that arrive at MTO stage over time. Using of queuing theory, the paper puts forward SPTA-DE algorithm which is the on-line heuristic algorithm of orders scheduling and due date quotation. And, the paper make comparative analyses on the due date and cost for the SPTA- DE heuristic algorithm and FCFS algorithm under the various control parameters, and draws constructive conclusions.
