Rapid Prototyping of Constraint-Based Production Flows in Outsourcing
In this publication a problem of production order planning is considered. The concept of a critical resource and a critical process, a constraint-based approach has been proposed. The question considered regards of an admissible production flow organization-guaranteeing completion of the production order under assumed limits, while taking into account the logistics constraints imposed. In that context the approach proposed can be seen as one following the Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints (TOC).
