Supply chain and operations managers have a number of critical issues to consider when setting a strategy for production scheduling. They must level production so that resources are uniformly loaded and satisfy variable demand patterns, determine the length of campaigns and how much product to make during each cycle, and run products in the optimum sequence. This presentation will describe a proven scheduling tool—the product wheel—and how it can help stabilize production, reduce inventories, and enhance customer service.
